Star German goalkeeper headed for Brisbane

FOOTBALL: The Brisbane Roar's W-League title aspirations will be in safe hands this season.

German international goalkeeper and captain, Nadine Angerer, has signed a one-year deal to play for the Roar - and she comes with plenty of pedigree.

The 34-year-old was named the inaugural UEFA Female European Player of the Year in Switzerland last week to cap off another stellar season.

Angerer led her country to victory in the European Championships - her fifth triumph in the competition - and she was also named player of the tournament.

She has played more than 120 times for her country, played in two FIFA Women's World Cups - winning the best goalkeeper award in 2007 - and won three Olympic bronze medals.
