Germany's women football squad pose for Playboy

Germany's women football squad pose for Playboy
Some of Germany's finest international women footballers have thrown themselves into a different kind of strip — in a shoot for PLAYBOY.

The players decided it was the best way to drum up interest for the Women's World Cup, which starts in the country later this month.
Bayern Munich players Annika Doppler, 19, Ivana Rudelic, 19, and Julia Simic, 22, as well as Gütersloh's Kristina Gessat and Wolfsburg's Selina Wagner left little to the imagination as they frolicked by a lakeside.

The German team is favourite to win the competition - and are clearly training hard as none of the current squad took part in the shoot.
German Playboy exec Nina van Splunter said: "Everyone knows how popular football is in Germany and, just like their male counterparts, the female team are very successful.
"The girls we have used are not yet first-team players with Germany, but they have all represented their country at various levels.
"For us, this makes a lot of sense." The girls offered their views on stereotypes in the women's game in an accompanying interview.
"The message is, look, we are normal - and lovely - girls," said Gessat.
The girls' sizzling mag appearance came as another squad was slammed for wearing TOO MUCH.
This week Iran lodged a complaint with FIFA after it banned the squad from wearing their favoured Islamic full-body strip and headscarf.
It was ruled the kit was against the football body's rules and Iran's Olympic qualifying match with Jordan was called off shortly before kick-off.
England will play their first match on June 27 against Mexico.
