A different feel in Frankfurt

The game in Frankfurt on Friday night will have a very different feel. Florian Kohfeldt will take charge of the Green-Whites for the first time and will hope to give the side an added impetus in a tough and important away game against Eintracht. SGE are unbeaten in four games in the league whereas Werder are yet to win this season. Hopefully that run will come to an end from 20:30 CET on Friday...

"One of the best days of my life"

It’s 10:36 pm on Monday evening in Milan. Italy’s final long ball forward made its way into the Swedish penalty area and Ludwig Augustinsson and co. managed to clear the ball, before the final whistle rang around the stadium. It’s a rarity to see sheer ecstasy after a 0-0 draw but the San Siro hosted a blue and yellow Scandinavian party after the final whistle. Werder spoke to the full-back after...

Delaney and Denmark qualify for World Cup

On Tuesday night, Thomas Delaney joined Ludwig Augustinsson and Milos Veljkovic as the third Green White to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia with his national side. Denmark came from behind in Dublin to win the second leg of their playoff against Ireland 5-1. Not as important for the country as a whole, but certainly a confidence boost was the Germany U20s’ international friendly win over...

4-1 win in Rehden friendly

In the second friendly of this international break, SV Werder beat Regionalliga side BSV Rehden 4-1. But the Lower Saxony side, sitting very deep, and their impressive goalkeeper, made it hard for Florian Kohfeldt’s team for long periods of the game. Werder went in front early on through Max Kruse (13’) but they conceded an equaliser just after the break as Kai Evers’ shot from distance was...

Friendly draw against SC Heerenveen

SV Werder have drawn 2-2 in a friendly against Dutch side SV Heerenveen. After a stuttering first half, in which Werder dominated but struggled to create much pressure going forward, the Green-Whites turned the game on its head in the second half. Pelle van Amersfoort had put his side into the lead in the 23rd minute with a sweetly-struck long range effort but Lamine Sané (69’) and Max Kruse (76’)...

"At the end of the day, all that counts is the result"

If you looked at the faces of the Green-Whites after the final whistle, you would’ve seen how painful Frankfurt’s goal from Sebastian Haller just before the end of the game was. The Werder faces were blank and disbelieving since the team could’ve and perhaps should have taken at least a point from the game. Werder reacted well to going behind, put in their all, had some good chances but had to...

Focused and determined

It’s no surprise to Florian Kohfeldt that photographers are lurking around the Weser-Stadion in order to get his photo. Nor is it a surprise to the Green-White’s new caretaker manager that around 40 journalists attended his press conference on Wednesday. That doesn’t mean that it’s not a new experience for the 35-year-old to be in the spotlight all of a sudden. “I know that the head coach of a...

In front of 41,000 spectators at the Weserstadion, the Green-Whites lost 3-0 to FC Augsburg, making it five losses in the league in this campaign. A double-whammy from the visitors shortly before the break through Michael Gregoritsch’s header (40’) and Alfred Finnbogason’s penalty (45+2’) meant...
