Tabea Kemme (born 14 December 1991) is a German footballer. She currently plays for 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam.[1] During her youth career and the first two seasons of her senior career, she played as an attacker. She switched to more defensive playing positions[2] while playing for Germany U-20 during the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, and she now plays mostly as a defender[3] or midfielder. Tabea Kemme combines her football career with her police studies at Brandenburg's police training college.[4] Two of Tabea Kemme's goals for FFC Turbine Potsdam, both long-range shots, were included in the 10 best goals of the German Football Association's Women's Goal of the Season 2014-2015 shortlist.[5]

Early career[edit]

Tabea Kemme attended the Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Potsdam Sport School,[6][7] which has an elite programme for girls' football. The school has very close links with the FFC Turbine Potsdam club.[8] In 2006, Kemme started training and playing with the junior teams of FFC Turbine, progressing to the senior first team in 2008.

International career[edit]

Tabea Kemme's first involvement with the Germany women's national football team was in the squad of players selected for a 2013 UEFA Women's Championship qualifying match against Romania on 22 October 2011,[9] but she did not play in the match. Kemme made her international debut for Germany during their 8-0 win against Croatia on 27 November 2013, a match in Germany's FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 qualification campaign.[10] She came on as a substitute for Leonie Maier, in the 76th minute.[11] Kemme was selected for the German squad for the FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 and played 6 matches in the tournament.

She was one of Germany's starting full-backs for the 2016 Summer Olympics, starting and playing every minute of all but one match. Germany would go on to win the gold medal.[12]
