First player wives arrive in Doha

In protest against FIFA, many football fans around the world are boycotting the World Cup in Qatar. However, this leaves some players wives cold. To support their husbands, many girlfriends, fiancées and wives of the German internationals flock to Doha.

The German national team starts the World Cup on Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the Khalifa International Stadium. Goalkeeper Kevin Trapp, striker Mario Götze and midfield star Joshua Kimmich will also be there. The partners of the three professional athletes have also arrived on site.

Brazilian model Izabel Goulart, Trapp’s fiancee, posts in her Instagram story first pans across the city and writes: “Hello Doha.” In the next story, Trapp can be seen in the official jersey and with a football in his hand. She comments on the picture with the words: “I’m so proud of you.” Plus a red heart.

Ann-Kathrin Götze, wife of the 2014 soccer world champion Mario Götze, has also arrived in Doha. In their stories shows, among other things, how she set out with her son, who was born in 2020. The little one pulls a small blue suitcase on wheels behind him and darts to the door. Then he keeps calling “Dad” full of anticipation.

The relatively newly married mother of three, Lina Kimmich – she has been married to Joshua Kimmich since July – on the other hand, is still very busy with the journey in her stories. First she shows a mountain of suitcases in a car, then a photo from the plane with an arrow pointing towards Doha.

In travel groups to the World Cup

While some travel alone or with children, there are also cross-team player wives travel groups. For example, Dani ter Stegen, wife of German goalkeeper André ter Stegen, flew to Qatar together with Anna Lewandowska, wife of Polish star striker Robert Lewandowski. To the photo in their stories she writes “Let’s go” to a German and a Polish flag. Sara Gündogan, wife of midfield star Ilkay Gündogan since May, has also been in the region for a long time. She posts beach and bikini photos from Dubai and writes that she is “so happy”.

Whether midfielder Jonas Hofmann, who got engaged to Sky presenter Laura Winter at the weekend before his own departure for the World Cup, can be happy with his loved one in the stadium is open. At least no Insta stories are currently revealing details. The same applies to Lisa Müller, Thomas Müller’s wife of many years. Here, too, things remain exciting.

The first and very controversial Winter World Cup has been held in Qatar on the Persian Gulf since November 20th. The final is scheduled to take place on December 18th.
