When German soccer player Mario Gomez called on gay soccer players to come out, surely he wasn’t limiting his request only to male footballers. So I’m sure he’s pleased to hear Nadine Angerer, a goalie for the country’s women’s national team, has revealed she’s bisexual.
“I am very open about this, because I am of the opinion there are nice guys and nice women,” says the goalkeeper, who plays for 1. FFC Frankfurt when not defending kicks at the World Cup. “Besides, I find it totally silly to have a general definition. … I see no problem for me to come out of the closet. This is nothing new for me, so I can deal with the issue in a totally relaxed manner.”
Her news follows fellow German goalkeeper Ursula Holl talking about her same-sex wedding last summer.
Next summer, Angerer and the Germans will compete in the FIFA Women’s World Cup. On home soil. And she’ll be bringin’ it.
