Legend goalkeeper Nadine Angerer retires from football

After calling time on her international career following this year’s world finals in Canada, 2013 FIFA Women’s World Player Nadine Angerer has retired from the game for good, a little earlier than she had planned. Having sustained a thigh injury in Portland Thorns’ meeting with Washington Spirit, the German goalkeeper, capped 146 times by her country, was forced to sit out her side’s final match of the season against Western New York Flash. The Thorns supporters nevertheless gave the two-time world champion a fittingly rapturous send-off on her final outing, showing their heartfelt appreciation for one of the greatest keepers the women’s game has ever seen.
