Battling win over Nürnberg

VfL Women beat Der Club 1-0 on Friday evening.

VfL Wolfsburg Women beat 1. FC Nürnberg 1-0 on Matchday 3 of the Google Pixel Women’s Bundesliga. VfL coach Tommy Stroot used the game to rotate his side in several positions. The Green-and-Whites were frustrated for long spells by the deep-lying visitors from Nuremberg, although after the early goal from striker Fenna Kalma – on her first start in the league – the victory never looked in danger.


  • 1-0 Kalma (11’): Two players making their full debuts combine for the goal. Chantal Hagel sends a corner from the right high into the penalty box, where Kalma heads in from close range.


Tommy Stroot: "We're not satisfied with the performance today. We should've made it a higher scoreline. At the end of the day, though, it's the win that counts and we picked up three important points."
