A 1-0 (1-0) China win against South Africa, the DFB team's knockout round at the World Cup in France is perfect. Ying Li met before the break for the Chinese (40th minute), who had lost their opening match in Saturday's World Cup against Germany 0: 1.
Only South Africa could have put Germany in danger after the 1-0 DFB team against Spain. The fact that Spain and China meet on the last day of group matches means that only one team can score six points in addition to the German team.
The South Africans, who lost to Spain in their first game, struggled early in the game. The Banyana Banyana lost only one shot in the first half towards the Chinese goal.
Four minutes Torgefahr
China quite different: the quarter-finalist of the 2015 World Cup had the most important parts of the game and had arrived twelve times at the conclusion. However, there was only five minutes left before the break when the situation was really dangerous: Bambanani Mbane (South Africa) did not qualify for a center with Rui Zhang in the right half of the field, but that was not the case. Li is the one who hit goalkeeper Kaylin Swart (40th) directly and unsustainably. ,
South Africa conceded half-time four minutes after the goal, one centimeter away. Shuang Wang sent a corner from the right, where Shanshan Wang led the ball to the first post. Again, Swart had no chance, but this time, the ball did not jump from the bottom of the crossbar completely behind the line – and then returned to the field (44th).

Sibulele Holweni and Kaylin Swart can only look at a Shanshan Wang's head.
In the second half, South Africa became stronger but not more convincing. Chinese goalkeeper Shimeng Peng had to parry a ball. China has managed to take advantage and has become dangerous only to the standards. Han Peng missed with a head just like the preliminary decision as substitute Yang Li. Both failed because of the strong reaction of Swart (85th and 89th).
In the last group match against Spain, China has the chance to enter the last sixteen with a win. South Africa must defeat Germany (both matches on Monday at 18:00, television: the first live ticker Good king News ONLINE), at least to preserve the theoretical chances of the next round.
