After a 6 hour bus ride from Lyon to Saarbruecken, Germany, we arrived at the hotel, changed, and just shortly after went to practice at the stadium we were going to play the next day. It was a few degrees colder in Germany, so we were all happy when the training finally started. Afterwards we returned to the hotel where we ate kudos for the ones who are doing ramadan, It must be hard not to eat and drink on a bus all day when everyone around you keeps passing around goodies...

The next day we got up early because the game started at 11, so that we had enough time to get back home after. As we all have made our past experiences with German teams, we were prepared for a physical game. Like for the friendlies before we played with a young team, only a few girls from the last years first team were available. Our goal was to keep the ball and move it around in order to avoid Saarbrueckens physical game, with what we succeeded for the most part. We mostly dominated the game and didnt leave the Germans many opportunities to score. In the end we won 2-0; both goals were scored in the first half. Now I'm with the Swiss National team in Kloten to prepare for the friendly game against Scotland on Wednesday. It will be the rematch of last years games, of which we won the first one 5-0 and lost the other one 4-0.
