Germany: Dzsenifer Marozsan stops his international career before the World Cup
After missing Euro 2022 in England due to a serious right knee injury, Dzsenifer Marozsan will not play the 2023 World Cup with the Germany team. The playmaker, who will turn 31 next month, announced on Monday her decision to end her international career. “My knee is no longer the same as before. I have to work very hard to make sure I can take part in all the training sessions and all the matches. I think it would be too much to chain international matches, preparation and the tournament.she justified in particular in a statement broadcast by the German Federation (DFB). Marozsan will play a final friendly against Brazil on April 11, his 112th and final cap.
It’s a legend saying goodbye to the Mannschaft. Marozsan indeed led Germany to the coronation at Euro 2013, notably by scoring a decisive goal in the semi-finals. She then offered her first Olympic title to the selection at the Rio Olympics in 2016, scoring in the final.
In very good shape in recent weeks with OL, Marozsan has had a more bumpy career in recent years. His career was marked in particular by a serious pulmonary embolism in July 2018. Close to quitting football, “Maro” was able to regain his level, but his body can no longer support the same workload as before.
