“This is, of course, unnecessary and unforgivable,” said Karl-Erik Torbe when Germany scored the second goal.
When Alexandra Pope put the ball in the net after a crazy foul from Manuela Zinsberger, she chose to stay silent.
“I’m not quite sure who you’re keeping quiet about,” Torp commented.
“Doing so may seem a little unsympathetic, but we have to let Bob pass,” added commentator Andreas Stabrun-Smith.
Bob explains the celebration, and says the booing was directed at Zinsberger.
– It was after an interview with Manuela Zinsberger, in which she said that I do not score goals. So I kept quiet, she told NRK.
– So it was the “payback time”?
– Yes, it is possible.
How good is the recording on it?
– The point is not to sign up for it, I’m happy to sign up anyway. I can help the team achieve the goal, which is the most important thing.
NRK spoke with the Austria goalkeeper before Bob. Then she said the following about her opponent’s celebration:
– She can celebrate however she wants. I dont care.
Zinsberger, who guards Arsenal’s cage on a daily basis, says today’s result is tough to deal with.
– I didn’t get the ball in time. You dealt with me and that was a goal. This is how it is as a goalkeeper, when you want to actively participate in the game. Then mistakes can happen, and when I make mistakes it can be a target. It happened today. I apologize to the team, but it’s also part of the job, she tells NRK.
There were a total of six hits on the post in the intense match between Germany and Austria, but the first was the character favorite and won 2-0 at Brentford.
– I’m incredibly frustrated. Not on the performance, but the result. We deserve more. We gave everything and had good chances, but we weren’t able to score today, Austria midfielder Sarah Zadrazil told NRK after the match.
She admits that a late second goal is unnecessary, but also believes they should have scored before that time.
– it’s no big deal. She’s been great all through the tournament, and then something like that could happen. We took big chances in the end and don’t blame her. We lose and win as a team,” Zadrazil says.
Austria caught fire, and they gave the Germans little room to breathe. They were one shot away from taking the lead early on.
But then there was one small misstep, and that was enough to send Germany into the lead. It was Clara Ball who intercepted the ball from the Austrian and rushed forward with the ball. The ball was fired perfectly by Lina Magul, who scored 1-0 in the white jersey.
Austria tried to keep up the pressure, but it was Germany that had great chances. A few seconds into the second half, right-back Julia Gwin hit the post at the post.
But when Germany seemed to have the upper hand, Austria responded with a massive opportunity. Barbara Dunst’s superb long shot ended up hitting the crossbar, and goalkeeper Merle Froehmst didn’t seem to be in complete control of the situation.
Several minutes later, an Austrian bullet hit the post again. This was the third strike in the metal.
Now I feel sorry for the Austrians, said Smith.
Then it was the turn of the Germans to be unlucky. Great shot from Clara Ball hit the crossbar. This was the sixth time that the match had been paid in total.
In the end, Germany will put a nail in the coffin after a clumsy move from that of Zinsberger. Alexandra Pope saved this move and the ball went to the Austrian goal instead.
And so it was settled, and Bob opted for silence after the outcome.
Although Austria could probably have done better with the margins on their side, it was candidate Germany that pulled the longest straw.
