At that time, she was already one of the best in her age group: in 2013, at the age of 13, Gwinn made her U15 debut and played a total of 52 international matches for five different national youth teams.
But things went well for young Gwinn at club level as well: Birgit Bauer of SC Freiburg was impressed by Gwinn’s talent as early as 2013 and brought her to Breisgau two years later.

At that time, Gwinn was still very young – and yet another step took place: she made her Bundesliga debut at the age of just 16 years, two months and eleven days! For comparison, at that time youth under the age of 17 could not play in the men’s Bundesliga, and even now there are only two players in the Bundesliga who were ever younger than Giulia Gwinn: Youssoufa Moukoko (men, Borussia Dortmund). ) and Paul Wanner (men, Bayern Munich).
At that time, she replaced Sandra Starke, who was replaced in the match against 1. FC Köln, and less than a month later she was in the starting line-up for the first time. Almost two months later, she scored her first goal as a professional.

Gwinn was already a staple part of the team at the 2019 World Cup, scoring the only goal against China in the tournament’s first leg.
