Wolfsburg – Eight months after a serious knee injury, Alexandra Popp made her comeback in the VfL Wolfsburg jersey. The Germany captain featured in a first-half friendly against Bundesliga rivals Eintracht Frankfurt.

The 30-year-old midfielder suffered a cartilage tear on her kneecap last year and has not played a game since May 2021. Popp’s goals this year are the German championship with her club and participation in the European championship in England in July.
