The big surprise against Holland is missing



The Swiss do not know how it is. After the 0: 3 in the first game, the Swiss in Schaffhausen only play 1: 1. So you miss the qualification for the World Cup 2019 in France. The last World Cup ticket goes to the current opponents and European champions from the Netherlands.

The game could not have started better for the Swiss. In the 7th minute, Ramona Bachmann (27) of the Dutch central defender Anouk Dekker (31) overlaps the ball and can only ride on goal. Dekker comes from behind and Bachmann stops rude – Red card! The dismissal caused noticeable unrest among the guests and the Dutch girls changed after 16 minutes. The Swiss surpass the remaining 83 minutes, but can not take advantage of the advantage.

The best chance for the first half is even among the minimized guests. Vivianne Miedema is eye-catching for Shanice van de Sanden, but Gaëlle Thalmann keeps Switzerland in the game with a gigantic procession.

During the break, Martina Voss-Tecklenburg reverses. Light force is announced. With Luana Bühler, a defender leaves the field and Alisha Lehmann completes the storm duo with partner Bachmann. But this recording is going backwards. Or rather, to your own goal. The Swiss fell behind in the 52nd minute. Midema is the one who brings the European champion from the Netherlands in front. The Swiss therefore need five goals to solve the World Cup ticket.

An evening for the history books

For a player, the evening will be unforgettable. Coumba Sow, the cousin of YB director Djibril Sow, makes her debut in the Swiss dress in the 62nd minute – and comes together promptly! In the 71st minute, Noëlle Maritz is a bit happy and does perfect for Sow, which is just einschieben.

The fans are just as historic. 5 & ​​# 39; 148 find their way to the Lipo Park in Schaffhausen – the highest number of spectators in a women's football game in Switzerland so far.

Unfinished farewell to Voss-Tecklenburg

The failed World Cup qualification means at the same time the farewell of the successful coach Voss-Tecklenburg. Under her leadership Switzerland qualified for the first time for a European championship and a world cup. Despite the setback with the Swiss Nati, the German will participate as national coach with her homeland during the World Cup.
