The message is, look, we are normal – and lovely – girls
Message by five German women footballers in Playboy’s June edition.
The German women’s football team are the defending champions at the 2011 World Cup that begins later this month in Berlin. Some members of the German national team took part in a raunchy shoot for Playboy Germany. However none of these women- Annika Doppler, 19, Ivana Rudelic, 19, and Julia Simic, 22 of FC Bayern Munich, Kristina Gessat of Gütersloh and Selina Wagner of Wolfsburg are part of the German team at the World Cup, so you can assume that the DFB will not be as outraged as it would probably be if first team players were involved. However they have represented Germany at various youth levels.
As you would probably expect, all English dailies, including the Mail and the Sun, have run stories on this piece of news.
