Alexandra Popp got involved again for VfL Wolfsburg
DFB captain Alexandra Popp made her first soccer appearance on Sunday after an almost nine-month injury break.
The 30-year-old worked for VfL Wolfsburg in the test against league rivals Eintracht Frankfurt for the first half.
A cartilage injury in his knee stopped Popp last spring. After an operation and a long rehabilitation period, the 111-time national player wants to be in top form before the European Championships in England (July 6th to 31st).
The Wolfsburg women will play their first competitive game after the winter break next Sunday (2:00 p.m.) with the Bundesliga catch-up game at Turbine Potsdam.
