Germany also wins the second match of the Women's World Cup. Against the poisoned Spaniards, the DFB team has been acting for a long time nervously and inaccurately. A success of Däbritz becomes the Breast Reliever, which opens the door to the eliminatory phase.

reThe selection of the DFB has at least one leg in the last 16 games of the 2019 Women's World Cup. With 1-0 (1: 0), the team of national coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg has triumphed in Spain and may, after the second win in the second preliminary match only theoretically miss the playoff round. FC Bayern Munich's Sara Däbritz scored the day's goal in a hot game. From an absolute victory, said the goalkeeper.

Even though it pleased at the start of the match on the Stade de Hainaut de Valenciennes, the Spanish team also broke the defense of the DFB. The tensions were not only technically strong but also aggressive in pressing. This resulted in a build-up of rough play by the Germans and, as a result, many quick defeats in the middle of the field.

Spanish midfielder Nahikari Garcia has particularly benefited from good scoring opportunities. Although it was Sara Doorsoun's last goal in the last six minutes, it was only the fact that Garcias finished shortly after, which left the German behind (14.).

The failure of Marozsan is noticeable

The absence of Dzsenifer Marozsan in the German center was clearly noticeable against Iber women being traded as a secret favorite at the approach of the World Cup. The playmaker had a broken foot in the opening match against China (1-0) and played for the entire preliminary round. Nevertheless, the 27-year-old has supported her team from the bench and has been allowed to watch how their teammates have progressively freed themselves.

Against the Spanish, mainly filled with players of the finalists of the Champions League, FC Barcelona, ​​Germany has more and more chances to provide respite in the last quarter of the first period. Striker Svenja Huth, of Turbine Potsdam, has again and again offensive battles that have allowed her teammates to progress.

"We are very happy with all three points – it was hard work." Svenja Huth, ZDF offensive player, said: "We were lucky not to be left behind, and then we improved. and we fought. "

Only theoretically still preliminary possible

This paid shortly before the break for German women. A Huth cross landed exactly on Alexandra Popp's head. Although the final wife of Spain, Panos first parried brilliant, but dropped the ball. Däbritz rocked faster than his opponent and swept the ball over the goal line (42.). Very happy, the DFB team organized a guided tour in the cabin.

In the second half, a game without midfield has developed with increasing playing time. While Spain, which possessed more ball possession, was trying to create pressure, Germany was turning more and more towards counter football. Both teams remained dangerous, the most convincing scenes were the Germans. But a second redeeming coup did not succeed.

He did not need it either. Due to their success in the first leg, the DFB team is very likely to qualify for the knockout stages. With six points at the end of the three group matches, there would be a lot of curiosities, so Voss-Tecklenburg and Co. does not appear at least among the top four group rounds of the second round.
