German head-coach waited until the last moment to announce his squad to the World Championship. Hosts will open the tournament playing against Cameroon tonight 19 o’clock. Germany has nominated only 15 players of 16 allowed as Emily Bölk has a smaller injury and the technical staff is expecting her to be the sixteenth player in the squad, so they don’t have to use one replacement option for her.
The squad of 15:
Goalkeepers: Katja Kramarczyk (TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen), Clara Woltering (BVB 09 Dortmund)
Line players: Julia Behnke (TuS Metzingen), Jenny Karolius (TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen), Antje Lauenroth (SG BBM Bietigheim)
Right wingers: Svenja Huber (BVB 09 Dortmund)
Leftwingers: Angie Geschke (VfL Oldenburg)n)
Left backs: Nadja Månsson (BVB 09 Dortmund), Xenia Smits (Metz HB / FRA), Lone Fischer (Buxtehuder SV)
