Only 18 years old she just had been named “the world’s most talented teenager” by Goal, as Germany’s youngest ever World Cup player.
Two years later, in 2022, she showed off on the biggest stage in the Euro in England and was then rewarded with two nominations; UEFA’s best player of the year and the Balon d’Or.
The midfielder joined in for an episode on the podcast talking about her extension with Wolfsburg, why the club is the best environment for her at the moment and why she has a private football coach that she trains with when she is not training or playing games with Wolfsburg or Germany’s national team.
