+++ 17.06.2019: 4: 0 against South Africa: DFB-Elf storms as a group first in the second round +++
Freed from pressure, the German women's national football team stormed into the World Cup final finals as group first. The team of national coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg won on Monday for the preliminary round in Montpellier sovereign with 4-0 (3: 0) against South Africa and showed after the two 1-0 work won against China and Spain without the injured playmaker Dzsenifer Marozsan (toe break ) the hoped for playful increase against the largely harmless Africans on the offensive.
The scorers also managed to score better: Melanie Leupolz (14th minute), Sara Däbritz (29th), Alexandra Popp (40th) and Lina Magull (58th) met in front of 15 502 spectators at the Stade de la Mosson - many of them German followers - to highly deserved success in the first international match with the World Cup newcomer.

With the group victory, the two-time world champion has reached his first stage goal in France and will meet in the round of 16 next Saturday (17.30 clock) in Grenoble on one of the four best group stages. How the first opponent in the knockout round will be called, is not yet clear. Spain and China fought for second place in Group B at the same time. The pointless Banyana Banyana will have to travel home.
Voss-Tecklenburg had changed their team to three positions compared to the Spain game. For Kathrin Hendrich, Lena Goeßling and Lena Oberdorf, who were charged with a yellow card, Leupolz, Magull and 18-year-old Freiburg native Klara Bühl were placed in the starting lineup.

And Germany started against the world ranking 49. committed and purposeful, never raised any doubts about the will to win. The first attacks were missing in glorious football weather and 27 degrees still in precision, before a standard situation led to the deserved German leadership. In a corner kicked by Verena Schweers Leupolz was completely free on the line of the five-meter space and had no trouble to place their header in the lower left corner.
Only two minutes later, it should have been 2-0: When South Africa goalkeeper Andile Dlamini was able to defend a Däbritz shot only with difficulty, Popp shot unceasingly from close range over the empty goal. Inexplicably, there was then a small break in the offensive game of the DFB team. It took almost half an hour for the playful Däbritz to build the lead. Again keeper Dlamini could not hold on a cross, this time from Schweers. And the Bald-Paris Däbritz was with her second tournament goal on the spot. Even before the break, Popp made up for her faux pas and increased in the usual manner with a powerful header after a low pass from Giulia Gwinn to 3: 0.
After the change, the picture did not change. Germany dominated and at the latest with the 4: 0 of the lively Bayern midfielder Magull, who used the confusion in the African defense after a free kick by Carolin Simon, the game was finally decided. After just over an hour Linda Dallmann came to her World Cup debut. Only in the final phase of the South African women came to opportunities, for the second tournament goal but it was no longer enough.

+++ 14.06.2019: Girelli in a triple pack - Italy's women's football in the World Cup knockout stages +++
The Italian women's football team has prematurely made it into the last 16 for their first World Cup participation for 20 years. Against World Cup newcomer Jamaica, there was on Friday in Reims a 5-0 (2: 0). Three goals scored Cristiana Girelli (12th minute / penalty, 25th, 46th), Aurora Galli hit twice (71st, 81st).
Curiosity was the first goal of the Italians: referee Anna-Marie Keighley (New Zealand) decided after video evidence on penalty. Jamaica's goalkeeper Sydney Schneider held the shot from Girelli. But the video assistant intervened again, because Schneider had moved too early from the line. In the second attempt, the Italian made sure.
