GER-W vs USA-W Dream 11 Team: Assured of a top 4 spot, Germany look to end their league stage matches with a win against a languishing USA side
USA Vs Germany FIH Women’s Pro League Best Dream 11 Team
The FIH Women’s Pro League is set to bring an end to its league stage standings and the culminating encounters begin on Sunday with Germany taking on USA. For the Germans, this encounter is the perfect way to bring an end to their showpiece tournament with the identity of their opposition of one who have endured a callous time in the league.
The apathy for USA has never looked to improve throughout their time in the league. Having won just the two matches, those two also coming late in the showpiece league for them, the side are languishing in the trenches of the league standings and rightfully so. Currently occupying 9th place with just the 4 points, USA have been besmirched throughout their 15 matches and things don’t look to get any better when they take on Germany today.
Having assured themselves of a place in the semi-final, Germany’s position will see no changes now. In fourth place with the 26 points currently, they are sitting 5 points ahead of Belgium with the difference big enough to ensure that they won’t be seeing out a jittery end to the tournament.
However, the final closing match of the league stages offers a chance to both these teams to end on winning ways after having being defeated in their previous clashes. While Germany saw their three match winning streak being closed down by Australia who get the better of them by 3-1, USA’s predicament continued after they were made light work of by China.
Conceding 4 goals to China in the previous match, USA went onto further add to their flabbergasting goals conceded column. They have now gone onto leak a momentous 44 goals in 15 matches, averaging atleast 3 per match and expect Germany to take full advantage of that aberration.
Against a side who are amongst the only three countries to have scored in excess of 30 goals, USA stand extremely little chance against Germany. There’s not one facet we can confidently pick out where USA have even the slightest chance of winning and Germany should win this one with ease.
Goal-Keeper for GER-W vs USA-W Dream 11
The rules of the game see us needing to pick out a bare minimum of four players from USA and we’ll be beginning with the first pick from their side in the form of the goal-keeper. Kelsey Bing becomes the shot stopper for us with us expecting her to implore her skill set and get a good bagful of points.
Defenders for GER-W vs USA-W Dream 11
We’ll continue with our selection from USA and the defensive formations sees only the lone pick from their side. Despite conceding 44 goals across the league, Ali Frode’s 334 points, point towards a player who has waged a lone battle.
From Germany it’s a trio of players who made a venture into our Dream 11 outfit for the day in the form of Janne Wieland Muller, Nike Lorenz and Sanja Zimmermann. With USA equally lacklustre in attack as they are in defence, encapsulating two poor facets perfectly to create a lopsided side, Germany can easily keep a cleansheet in the match.
Midfielders for GER-W vs USA-W Dream 11
The three woman midfield pivot sees the two selections from Germany and the one from USA compose our side. From the favourites of this match, we are getting in Anne Schroder and Pia Maertens, two players who have helped their side dominate the centre of the park. An area where Germany have struggled to bolster their side, these two have snared points at will and should once again.
Once again, it’s the one pick from USA in the form of Danielle Grega.
Forwards for GER-W vs USA-W Dream 11
Playing it safe, we have picked out the one player each in every segment from USA and staying true to that identity, we go in with Kathleen Sharkey from their side. That’s not the only reason though, with the striker having an affinity to scoring goals in an outfit that has offered her no support.
Germany could make this outing an extremely sorry one for Germany and we do emission the scoreline getting silly. Hannah Gablac and Charlotte Stapenhorst are the two strikers we have roped faith in to get us a solid basketful of points.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Defender Nike Lorenz is our captain while Gablac in strike is chosen to be our vice-captain for this one.
