I think it’s going to be a very close game. They’re number two in the FIFA rankings, so it’s going to be a difficult game and very different from Spain because they have a very different style of play, but we’re prepared.

The French come through their individual quality, the offensive power they have, especially on the outside. For France, the quarterfinals were very intense over 120 minutes, they had to invest a lot.

It’s a tough opponent, we know that France have enormous quality in the transition moments, fantastic individual players with a lot of speed


Today I would like to pay a big compliment to one player, although I never do it, and that is Lena Oberdorf. What she played today, in this position, at such a young age is worthy of all honor.

It was extremely intense today, but we deserved it. In the phases when Austria were a little stronger, we stuck with it, were in the duels, played further forward and rewarded ourselves with the second goal.

Very, very intense game and compliments to Austria, they can fight without end. We are incredibly happy to have finally reached a semi-final again.
