German national team coach Silvia Neid has called up Melanie Behringer and Melanie Leupolz for the upcoming friendly against England at Wembley on November 23 (16:00 CEST). The two Bayern players have enjoyed an impressive run of form with the team, leading the Allianz Women's Bundesliga and remaining unbeaten. In England they will face a strong opponent that will test Germany as they prepare for the World Cup in Canada next year.
"We look forward to a match against a very strong opponent with great quality and an impressive stadium. It's a great way to see out the calendar year," said Neid. For this encounter, a record 50,000 tickets have been sold. A great way to cap off the international year indeed!
