Germany started the Women’s World Cup well. Alexandra Popp scored twice in the 6-0 win over Morocco. Emotional words followed after the game.
July 24 update: DFB captain Alexandra Popp dedicated the ‘ET’ jubilation after her two goals in the World Cup opener to her late father. She also calls home “in that sense,” Popp said after the German soccer team’s 6-0 (2-0) win over debutants Morocco in Melbourne, Australia.
“Especially because we are very far away at the moment,” explained the double scorer: The gesture is “not only for the people who are sitting in front of the television, but also for the people who are no longer with us and who were still important people for me”. I just think of her.
Popp explains her goal celebrations: Sad spooky moment after DFB Women’s World Cup win
When asked who answered the phone at home during the cheering, a visibly touched Popp replied, “The one that picked up was my dad.”
According to the science fiction film “ET – The Extra-Terrestrial”, the attacker had formed a telephone with her fingers after her two goals (11th / 39th) and had stuck her hand to her ear. She stuck out the index finger of her other hand and looked up at the sky.
