Germany have named their squad for the upcoming qualifiers for Euro 2021, and eight players from Bayern Frauen made the cut. The Germans will play Montenegro on August 31 in Kassel and Ukraine on September 3 in Lviv.
“We are currently in a stage of development and we want to continue working hard,” head coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg said. “As well as our European qualifiers, we have organised a number of matches against top-class opposition, starting with our game against England in November, for example.”

Bayern backup goalkeeper Carina Schluter was named to the seven woman standby list.
