Voss-Tecklenburg prepares for a new challenge

Exclusive Interview

"Germany job an incredible opportunity"

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg took charge of her last games as Switzerland coach this month ahead of taking on the same role at the German Football Association (DFB).

The 125-time Germany international was appointed Switzerland boss in February 2012 and steered the team to a maiden Women's World Cup appearance (Canada 2015), a first-ever UEFA Women's European Championship qualification (Netherlands 2017), as well as a first international title (2017 Cyprus Cup).

She now takes over a German side aiming to restore their former lustre after disappointing campaigns at the most recent FIFA Women's World Cup and at UEFA EURO 2017.

FIFA.com spoke exclusively with Voss-Tecklenburg about her time in Switzerland and the new challenge on the horizon.
