Melanie Leupolz will be rejoining the German women’s national team after recovering from injury alongside FC Bayern teammates Leonie Maier, Melanie Behringer, and Sara Däbritz for Germany’s first Euro 2017 qualifiers of the year. The DFB team faces Turkey on April 8th in Istanbul and Croatia on April 12th.
Despite their position as group leaders, Germany coach Silvia Neid issued a warning: “The first leg in Croatia alone showed us what can happen when we don’t approach a task fully focused. We were able to win in Zagreb, but we certainly didn’t make it easy on ourselves. I expect my team to head into every game with passion and commitment – that’s what we intend to do for these two games.”
