Silvia neid 2007 germans were one of a kind
Neid's career as a player began at SV Schlierstadt, later renamed to Klinge Seckach. She stayed with the club until 1983 when she signed up with SSG Bergisch Gladbach, then the dominant team in German football. She won the double with SSG in 1984, but moved to TSV Siegen after a title-less 1985 season. The club enjoyed its most successful years during Neid's tenure, winning six championships and five cups. When Gerd Neuser stopped coaching Siegen in 1994, Neid requested a transfer to SG Praunheim, but the club refused. Neid retired after the 1996 season.
As a German international, Neid made her debut on 10 November 1982 against Switzerland. She scored two goals in the match, the first of which came just one minute after she had entered the pitch. Neid won the UEFA Women's Championship three times in succession between 1989 and 1995, and reached the final of the 1995 FIFA Women's World Cup. Her last game was at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta against Brazil.
Immediately after retiring from active football, Neid took a coaching job with the German women's national team. She managed the under-19 team, which won the 2004 World Championship and finished runner-up at the Women's Championship under her guidance.
Neid served as assistant manager of the senior national team under Tina Theune-Meyer, before succeeding Theune-Meyer as head coach on 20 June 2005. She coached the team to victory at the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup, defeating Brazil 2–0 in the final, and the 2016 Summer Olympics. Neid stepped down as head coach in August 2016.
