BERLIN (AP) — German soccer fans are hearing an unfamiliar voice, with a woman providing commentary on a men's soccer game on national TV for the first time.

Christina Graf became the country's first female commentator at a men's professional soccer game when she called Hertha Berlin's 5-1 win at Jahn Regensburg in the second division Sunday.

The 27-year-old Graf beat out around 1,200 applicants to win a casting show for her new job with broadcaster Sky.
