After 88 appearances: Wolfsburg’s Svenja Huth resigns from the national soccer team

As of: March 17, 2024 12:29 p.m

Svenja Huth has surprisingly announced her resignation from the national football team. The all-rounder from Bundesliga club VfL Wolfsburg played 88 times for the record European champions.

On Sunday, the 33-year-old drew a line under her long career in the national teams of the German Football Association (DFB), which began in 2006 with a game for U15 juniors. “It was a time that I look back on with pride and humility. A time in which I learned an incredible amount and, through victories, defeats, successes and setbacks, I matured into the person I am today. I gave football – “My passion – subordinated everything and always gave everything. But it was also a time that was both physically and mentally challenging and exhausting. That’s why I came to the decision to end my career in the national team,” Huth wrote her Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Huth wants to spend more time with his wife and children

The footballer, who comes from Alzenau in Franconia, added that her sporting focus is now on VfL Wolfsburg. At the same time, she is looking forward to more time for and with her family. The Wolfsburg resident became the mother of a son last September. Her wife Laura gave birth to their baby. In the future, the 33-year-old will have more time for both of them than before.

European champion and Olympic champion with the DFB team

Huth looks back on a successful time in the German selection teams. She became European champion with the U17 in 2008, and two years later she celebrated the World Cup victory with the U20. Wearing the senior national team jersey, the Wolfsburg native won the European Championship title (2013) and Olympic gold in 2016 in Rio.

The VfL captain has now deliberately decided not to take part in the games again, even though she and the DFB team recently managed to qualify for the Olympics in Paris in the summer. “I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for the girls in front of the TV in the future and cheering,” announced the 33-year-old.
