Ten She-Wolves were involved in UEFA Women’s Nations League Matchday 4 for their respective countries on Tuesday. They will be heading back today and joining their club-mates on Friday back at the training ground in Wolfsburg. Here is how they all fared with their national teams:

Germany get valuable points

Germany defeated Iceland 2-0 on Tuesday evening, with Svenja Huth, Lena Oberdorf, Lena Lattwein and Kathrin Hendrich all in the starting XI. Interim coach Horst Hrubesch then brought Jule Brand on in the second half to make it five Wolfsburg players. After their 5-1 win against Wales the previous Friday, Germany now sit on nine points, putting them second in Group A3.

Netherlands top their group

The Netherlands – with VfL defender Lynn Wilms in their squad for their last two matches – are now well placed to win their group. Tuesday saw the Oranje defeat Scotland 1-0 away, with Wilms coming on as an 85th-minute substitute. That followed on from the 4-0 win over the same opposition at home the previous Friday, Wilms once again coming off the bench for the last few minutes. 

Relegation fears for Switzerland

Riola Xhemaili’s Switzerland are in danger of being relegated to League B, after their 7-1 thrashing at the hands of Spain on Tuesday, hot on the heels of a 1-0 loss in Sweden a few days before. Xhemaili came on in the 65th minute against the Swedes but was an unused substitute in the Spain match. 

Poland aiming for promotion

Things are looking much rosier for VfL striker Ewa Pajor’s Poland, with promotion to League A on the cards. On Matchday 4, coach Nina Patalon’s side drew 1-1 in Serbia, having beaten them at home the previous Friday 2-1, with Pajor on the scoresheet. 

Slovenia without a win

VfL defender Sara Agrez’s Slovenia are still seeking their first win of the Nations League campaign after a 0-0 draw with Belarus on Tuesday – the second in a row between the two teams, with the reverse fixture the previous Friday finishing 1-1. Agrez was a starter in both matches.
