Women’s World Football Show welcomes Scotland national team forward Lisa Evans. From her days in the Scottish Women’s Premier League to the German Frauen-Bundesliga, Lisa has traveled a long and winding road through women’s football success and she takes us along every twist and turn.
As a youngster, Lisa left her home playing for Glasgow City to travel to Germany to play for Turbine Potsdam. The affable young star tells us how she learned to adjust to a new culture and a new language.
Lisa also gives us the scoop on her recent 3-year contract with Turbine’s rival, FC Bayern Munich. And Adam gets her to tell us who she considers the best player she’s ever played against. You’ll be surprised at that one. If you love Scotland, Germany and women’s soccer (and we know you do) – You’ll love Lisa’s story!
