Shape of things to come for Roar

NADINE Angerer has given Brisbane Roar fans a glimpse of what they can expect in the coming W-League season by helping Germany to its sixth successive European Championship success in Sweden.

German captain Angerer, 34, who signed a one-year deal with the Roar earlier this month, saved two penalties as the Germans beat Norway 1-0 in Stockholm.

The veteran, who made her international debut as a 17-year-old in 1996, denied Trine Ronning and Solveig Gulbrandsen in each half, while in between her two penalty saves, substitute Anja Mittag scored the only goal.

Angerer revealed via Twitter she would play in the upcoming W-League season before playing in the US.

"Hello everyone, from September I will play for one season in Australia," she tweeted before signing for the Roar.

Angerer has been an ever-present in all of the last six German European Championship wins. She was also a World Cup winner in 2003 and 2007, and picked up Olympic bronze medals in Sydney in 2000, Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008.
