Pohlers is coming off a historic campaign in which Wolfsburg captured its first UEFA Women’s Champions League title along with Bundesliga and German Cup trophies. Pohlers scored 32 goals in 35 appearances across all competitions, capturing her third Champions League title with a third different club, having won also with FFC Frankfurt in 2008 and Turbine Potsdam in 2005.
With eight goals in the Champions League, Pohlers moved to the top of the all-time list with 42 career European goals.
With another successful season under her belt, Pohlers has added to her legacy as one of the most prolific scorers in German women’s soccer. She has amassed more than 300 goals in nearly two decades as a professional, including one season with the Atlanta Beat of the WUSA in 2003. She is a three-time scoring champion in the Bundesliga, twice with Turbine Potsdam (2002, 2006) and most recently with 25 goals in all competitions for FFC Frankfurt (2011).
Pohlers was a teammate of Spirit defender Ali Krieger’s at Frankfurt, where both were a part of the team that won Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup championships in 2008.
Pohlers was a force with the heralded German national team for most of the last decade, with 67 career appearances and 28 goals, good for 12th on Germany’s all-time scoring list. She was a member of teams that captured the 2003 Women’s World Cup and the 2005 European Championship, and she owns bronze medals from the 2004 and 2008 Olympics.
