With a goal in the second minute of the game, Germany cruised to a 2-0 victory over Belgium in their first match as part of the “Three Nations. One Goal.” Cup. The two nations and the Netherlands are putting on this event in order showcase their combined bid for the 2027 Women’s World Cup.

Bayern was represented in the match by Klara Bühl, Lea Schüller, Marina Hegering, Sydney Lohmann, and Linda Dallmann. The match also featured former Bayern players Sara Däbritz and Kathrin Hendrich.

Svenja Huth, wearing the captain’s armband, opened the scoring just 88 seconds in the match after a brilliant pass from Bühl. Schüller grabbed her goal to double Germany’s lead in the 55th minute. It was the 23-year-old’s 13th career goal for Germany.

In the second half, head coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg was able to give debuts to SGS Essen’s Nicoel Anyomi and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Sjoeke Nüsken.

Germany XI: Frohms - Hendrich, Lattwein, Hegering (Oberdorf 46), Rauch - Däbritz (Nüsken 73), Marozsan (Popp 73), Huth (Waßmuth 61), Lohmann (Dallmann 46), Bühl (Anyomi 61) - Schüller
