Besondere Momente

Aller guten Dinge sind drei
Bis zum gestrigen Donnerstag war Englands bestes Abschneiden bei einer FIFA U-20-Frauen-Weltmeisterschaft das Erreichen der Viertelfinalrunde 2002 und 2008. Weiter hatten die jungen Engländerinnen es noch nie geschafft. Dank des Sieges gegen die Niederlande dringen die 'Young Lionesses' nun auf fussballerisches Neuland vor. Die Schützlinge von Mo Marley sind mit zwölf Toren die bislang torgefährlichste Mannschaft in Frankreich. Nachdem die englischen U-17- und U-19-Teams der Männer 2017 die jeweiligen WM-Turniere gewannen, wollen ihnen die Frauen in diesem Jahr nacheifern.

Junge Nadeshiko als einziges nicht-europäisches Team in der Vorschlussrunde
Nachdem England, Frankreich und Spanien die Runde der letzten Vier bereit erreicht hatten, hätte Deutschland dafür sorgen können, dass die Vorschlussrunde eine rein europäische Angelegenheit wird. Doch die Japanerinnen machten diese Hoffnung mit einer starken Leistung zunichte. In der zweiten Halbzeit der Partie trafen sie drei Mal. Damit gelang den Ostasiatinnen beim dritten Versuch erstmals bei diesem Turnier ein Sieg gegen Deutschland in einem K.o.-Spiel. Auch bei der FIFA Frauen-WM 2011 hatten sich die Japanerinnen im Viertelfinale gegen Deutschland durchgesetzt. Am Ende feierten sie damals den Titelgewinn.

_Fünf Spielerinnen im Rennen?
_Vor der Viertelfinalrunde lagen mehrere Torjägerinnen im Rennen um den Goldenen Schuh von adidas gleichauf. Nun stehen die Engländerin Georgia Stanway nach ihren zwei Toren gegen die Niederlande, sowie die Spanierin Patri Guijarro mit fünf Toren ganz oben. Unmittelbar dahinter folgen mit vier Toren auf dem Konto die Französin Amelie Delabre sowie die beiden Japanerinnen Saori Takarada und Riko Ueki, die beide am Freitag gegen Deutschland trafen. Alle fünf Spielerinnen haben noch zwei weitere Spiele vor sich, in denen sie ihre Ausbeute weiter steigern können. Im Endspurt um diese Auszeichnung ist somit Hochspannung vorprogrammiert.

Das Zitat

'Bei der UEFA U-19-Europameisterschaft im vergangenen Jahr sind wir hinter unseren Möglichkeiten zurückgeblieben. Das soll allerdings nicht respektlos gegenüber den anderen Teilnehmern klingen. Wir hatten einfach nicht das Gefühl, dort alles gegeben zu haben. Wir waren daher entschlossen, das Turnier hier einfach in Angriff zu nehmen und alles zu geben und mit vollem Einsatz um gute Resultate zu spielen. Es geht darum, mit einer positiven Einstellung und viel Spaß dabei zu sein. Wie ich immer wieder unterstreiche, genießen wir unsere Teilnahme hier sehr.'
Mo Marley (Trainerin, England)
