Kerstin Stegemann (born 29 September 1977) is a former female footballer from Germany.

Career[edit]

Born in Rheine-Mesum, she made her football debut at age 15 in 1993, playing for FFC Heike Rheine in the Frauen Bundesliga. Within two years, she made her first appearance for the German national team, playing in a 13 April 1995 match against Poland. She has been a mainstay of the national team ever since, playing on Germany's Bronze Medal-winning squads in the 2000 and 2004 Summer Olympics,[1] as well as their 2003 Women's World Cup championship team.

Along with Birgit Prinz and Bettina Wiegmann, she is one of only three German women with more than 150 caps, having reached that mark in a 23 November 2006 match against Japan. She also holds a team record with 61 consecutive international matches played.

Stegemann retired in 2009 with 191 international appearances and eight goals to her credit.
