Sport More international matches than Kroos: Dzsenifer Marozsan before 100.
UEFA awards shortlist announced for Champions League, Europa League: Bayern Munich have seven nominees
The winners will be revealed on Oct. 1 during the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League group stage draw on Oct. 1. The UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Women's Champions League announced the nominees for the top goalkeeper, defender, midfielder, and forward while the UEFA Europa League has just announced their Player of the Year nominees.The following were the top three vote-getters for each position in each UEFA league.
Dzsenifer Marozsan even has a Champions League title and an international match ahead of the great Toni Kroos. The Real Madrid professional and 98-time national player was already world champion - but the Olympique Lyon playmaker was an Olympic champion.
Soccer players don't like such comparisons with men. And yet: Marozsan is something like the Kroos in Martina Voss-Tecklenburg's team. Almost everything on the lawn runs over them. On Tuesday (4 p.m. / ARD) the 28-year-old will play her 100th international match for Germany in Montenegro.
Badminton world tour postponed to 2021
The Asian leg of the 2020 badminton world tour scheduled for November has been moved until next year in Bangkok, officials said, in the latest disruption to the sport due to the coronavirus pandemic. It said the Asian leg of the games originally planned for November were no longer "viable" and decided the Asian leg of the tour should be played in Thailand. "The January dates provide BWF with the best possible opportunity to resume and complete the HSBC BWF World Tour for 2020 as part of our return to international badminton," it said in a statement late Friday.
Not surprisingly, Marozsan sat in the press conference with national coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg on Monday. «That is certainly something very special for me. I got a little goosebumps, I have to honestly say that, ”she said with a smile before her anniversary game, in which she might even appear as captain. “Ten years in the national team is a hell of a long time. So much happened there. "
When Marozsan, born in Budapest, was four years old, her parents moved to Germany. Her father Janos, a four-time Hungarian national soccer player, signed with the regional league club 1. FC Saarbrücken. The highly talented daughter landed with the women of 1. FC Saarbrücken via DJK Burbach. She played her first Bundesliga game at the age of 15 - to this day she is the youngest player in the upper house.
French Open: Ex-champ Halep in 2nd round, Venus Williams out
PARIS (AP) Top-seeded Simona Halep won 10 straight games in beating Sara Sorribes Tormo 6-4, 6-0 to reach the second round of the French Open on Sunday and extend her winning streak to 15 matches.Halep won on her 29th birthday, but with minimal celebrations planned for the evening since the coronavirus pandemic means players stay locked inside the security bubble of their hotels.
In 2009, Siggi Dietrich, the maker of 1. FFC Frankfurt, negotiated in the Marozsans' living room. “With Hungarian salami,” recalls today's top manager of German women's football. The parents let the then 17-year-old go. The midfielder played on the Main for seven years, matured to become a national player, won the Champions League in 2015 before moving to France in 2016 after the German team won the Olympic Games in Rio. In Lyon she then collected title after title: three times French champion, four times winner in the premier class.
«Dzseni brings outstanding success and is incredibly important for the team. It brings tremendous value to the team, which it confirms again and again, "said Voss-Tecklenburg, praising the 2013 European champion." In training you can always see her special quality, especially how she can handle the ball in pressure situations. "
Marozsan scored a goal in the 3-0 win on Saturday in Essen against Ireland, with which the DFB team took over the championship lead in their European Championship qualifying group. Like Toni Kroos, the strategist of the women's national team is not a person of grand gestures or words.
“She is a quiet leader who often makes the difference,” says Dietrich. "She is a total family man and, despite her popularity, has always remained true to herself." For once, Marozsan's parents and her brother are not in Montenegro because of the corona pandemic - and somehow they are: “On my arm,” said the tattooed national player. "And in my heart."
2018, Kroos and Marozsan won the election for Germany's soccer player and soccer player of the year. Dietrich does not want to make a comparison with the, of course, much more famous Real star: "Dzseni is a brand of its own."
