Germany 1 – 0 China Football Highlights
Venue : Roazhon Park
Date : 8th June, 2019
Yellow : 66′ Giulia Gwinn 1 – 0
Deadlock broken. What a hit!
I said earlier China were finding it difficult to deal with Germany’s threat from set-pieces. They fail to clear the delivery and the ball drops onto the edge of the box for Giulia Gwinn. The 19-year-old Freiburg player takes a touch and smashes a shot into the far corner. A wonderful finish and the German’s end their barren goalless run.

Man Of The Match :
- The two-time world champions enter the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup with a cloud of uncertainty hanging over them following a couple of hugely underwhelming years on the pitch.
- Despite being ranked second in the world and current Olympic champions, the Germans have turned to former player Martina Voss-Tecklenburg to turn the country’s fortunes around after finishing last in the SheBelieves Cup.
- Germany face China in their opening contest and will be keen to get off to a good start to avoid any unnecessary pressure being placed on them with Lyon’s Dzsenifer Marozsan key to her side’s chances and the playmaker enters this tournament in superb form.
- China enter this competition with the aim of progressing to the knockout stages but face a tricky route to make it there, especially when facing Germany in their first match of the tournament.
- They might be able to catch the Germans off guard but this young side know they face an uphill task of taking anything from the game if Germany can rediscover their best form.
- A lot of the Chinese hopes will rest with Wang Shuang who is undoubtedly their most important player and the PSG forward comes into this tournament on the back of seven goals and eight assists from just 18 matches in her debut season for the French outfit.
