Germany honors football champions

German President Köhler honored the team that defended the Women’s Football Worldcup Championship earlier this year in China. All the players received the highest sports-honor from the German government. In addition, the coach Silvia Neid received the Federal Cross of Merit in recognition of outstanding leadership in raising the profile of Women’s Football in Germany and making the German team a powerhouse internationally.

A few weeks ago the FIFA announced that the Women’s Football Worldcup in 2011 will take place in Germany.
