Coach Silvia Neid feels set on Sunday against Canada by their contract extension with the DFB shortly before the World Cup opening not under pressure.
Berlin (SID) - coach Silvia Neid feels set just before the World Cup opener on Sunday at the sold-out Berlin Olympic Stadium against Canada (18.00 / ARD) by renewing their contract with the German Football Association (DFB) not under pressure. DFB President Theo Zwanziger have extended with it "in order to make it clear that further cooperation does not depend on the results at this World Cup." Envy "I see that therefore in any way as an obligation for me," said the magazine kicker.
The 47-Jahrige, whose Vertrag was extended for three years until 2016, considers a defeat in the first game despite the defending favourites possible. "You can expect always with everything." "I can only try to set the team as well as possible", said envy.
Although the coach would not exclude a kick-off failure, a better squad than the World Cup triumph is her according to his own four years ago in China available. "I think already that we have a team this time with many types of players that I can act very well." "We had the 2007 not necessarily," said envy: "Therefore the starting grid was also much easier, because other players were not so far." "Today we have much more choice, above all in the game forward."
