The successful European Championship second place still has an impact on everyday life for the national soccer players.
"We are recognized, no matter where we are. Whether I'm strolling through the city, at the airport or sitting on the train. Someone always recognizes you - and often it's not just one person, but several people coming at you." , Lina Magull told the "Süddeutsche Zeitung" (Friday). Laura Freigang reported: "It wasn't like that before to that extent." That happened in between. "But now: Every day when I'm outside. That's awesome!"
The two professionals meet at the start of the Bundesliga season on Friday evening in Frankfurt. Magull (28) plays for Bayern Munich, Freigang (24) for Eintracht Frankfurt. The fact that the game will be played in the large stadium (7.15 p.m. / Magentasport and Eurosport) fills both with anticipation. "Our goal is to break the record from 2014: more than 12,000 spectators at the last game of the season between Wolfsburg and 1. FFC Frankfurt. That would really be something special for us," said Freigang.
After the successful European Championships in England, the German Football Association and the clubs are hoping for an upswing in the league. Most recently, an average of just over 800 fans came to the games. Last season, several Champions League games were played in the big stadiums for the men's teams and set records. "Experiences from Spain and England show that it works. And there's nothing wrong with doing it more often in Germany. We have enough exciting encounters in the league," said Freigang.
