Popp wears moustache to make light of social media's 'suggestion'
Sports Scene

Germany striker Alexandra Popp made light of social media posts saying she could play in the country's men's national team by appearing at Friday's media conference wearing a stick-on mustache.

Popp scored both goals in Wednesday's semi-final to defeat France 2-1 and secure Germany a record-extending ninth appearance in the European Championships final.

After the game German football website Fums Magazine published a social media post with a mustache photoshopped onto a picture of Popp captioned "Called up by Hansi Flick (German men's head coach) for (FIFA World Cup) Qatar 2022: Alexander Popp."
