Sandra Smisek (born 3 July 1977) is a former German footballer, who played as a striker in Germany for FSV Frankfurt, FCR Duisburg and FFC Frankfurt, as well as for the German national team.

Smisek has played for Germany at four Women's World Cup finals.[1]

International career[edit]

Smisek made her debut for Germany on 13 April 1995 as a substitute for Patricia Brocker, also scoring her first goal in a 8–0 home victory against Poland.[2][3] She was included in the 1995 FIFA Women's World Cup squad led by manager Gero Bisanz, her first major tournament, where she managed only one appearance, as a replacement for Maren Meinert in the 0–2 final defeat against Norway.[4][5]

Smisek also represented Germany at the 1996 Summer Olympics, but never played once as Germany were eliminated in the group stage.[6]

Under new manager Tina Theune, she established herself in the first team, playing in all of Germany's matches in the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup until their 2–3 deficit against the United States in the quarter-finals, netting against Mexico.[7]

Smisek also appeared in the 2001 UEFA Women's Championship, where she found the net against Russia,[8] and Norway,[9] to finish as joint top goalscorer with three goals alongside compatriot Claudia Müller,[10] and help Germany to their fifth title.[11]
