Meanwhile, Germany will try to overwhelm Colombia as it did with Morocco with its main star, the forward Alexandra Popp. For the clash, Felicitas Rauch will be out in defense, injured on a knee and who is already the third defender that Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s team has lost.
“It will be a difficult match because Colombia is a good team and so are we, we hope to win. We have seen that it is a team that attacks very hard, with a lot of energy and tries to play close to the rival goal. They have very good forwards, fast, but we want to play our game and define it ourselves”, revealed the coach.
