Stats & Links: Player of the Summer – Manuela Zinsberger

While the male first team was touring in Asia this summer, many female Bayern players went to the Netherlands for the EURO 2017. Author: Jolle • Translator: Dennis

The German women’s national team was eliminated in the quarter-finals against Denmark in their first tournament with Steffi Jones at the helm. Austria on the other hand stormed into the semi-final in their first ever appearance at the EUROs. A major surprise. And one player stood out from a well drilled team. Goalkeeper Manuela Zinsberger.

At Bayern, the 21-year-old is only the backup keeper behind Tinja-Riikka Korpela. Thus, her minutes to demonstrate her strengths in competitive matches have been limited, but everytime she had to step in for Korpela, she delivered strong performances. We at Miasanrot also repeatedly emphasized that a player like her would be a starter at almost any other Bundesliga team and that she has everything to define an era at Bayern. Her appearance at the highest European level were a positive surprise nonetheless.

The Austrian women’s soccer experts at ballverliebt.eu chose Zinsberger as the goalkeeper of the tournament and also Women’s Soccer Zone made her the number 1 of the EUROs.

With 23, she saved the most shots of any goalkeeper at the tournament. In the group stages only the elite French national team put one past her. Against Spain she was the decisive factor in the penalty shot-out and also in the semi-finals against Denmark she dove to the right side most the times. Miasanrot congratulates to a fantastic performance.
