Sehan and Walkling fuelling Germany's ambitions

Jasmin Sehan and Ricarda Walkling epitomised the belief that permeates the Germany squad when they spoke to UEFA.com about their Women's Under-17 title credentials.

Jasmin Sehan and Ricarda Walkling are unanimous in their belief that Germany can capture the UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship title for a fourth time. 

Far from resting on their laurels, however, both players know what to expect from a tricky section containing France, Spain and Scotland. "We want to become European champions but it's going to be difficult against Spain and France, who are normally regarded as favourites," said forward Sehan, who has underlined her potential to the tune of 11 goals in nine outings at this level. 

"Nobody should underestimate us either because we're in good form. We can make it to the end," added Sehan, and defender Walkling duly echoed her team-mate's positive sentiments. "We want to go as far as possible and hopefully all the way to the final," she told UEFA.com. "First we need to focus on the three group matches and take it from there."

No fewer than seven members of the Germany team that triumphed at UEFA Women's EURO 2013 got an early taste for success by winning the U17 tournament, and Sehan is eager to tread the same path. "I admire Dzsenifer Marozsán, who plays in my position. Leonie Maier has also done well over the years and performed very well at the EURO. I hope I can play in Dzsenifer's position one day and make it into the senior team," the 16-year-old added.
