THE TEAM NEWS
- Germany were far from their best as they were frustrated for large parts against China but did eventually manage to seal a narrow 1-0 win to open their Group B campaign with a victory.
- The Germans had teenager Giulia Gwinn to thank in what was her first competitive appearance for her country as she fired from just outside of the area to give her side the lead in the 66th
- Carolin Simon was replaced at half-time in the China game and her place in the side for this contest with Spain could be in doubt with Lena Oberdorf pushing for a start after becoming Germany’s youngest ever player to appear at a World Cup when replacing Oberdorf.
- Spain got off to a winning start at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup as they secured a 3-1 victory over South Africa in their opening match in Group B but now face a tough test against Germany.
- It was not as easy as the scoreline suggested for Spain as they went behind in the 25th minute before two penalties with a red card for the opposition sandwiched in between edged them ahead before substitute Lucia Garcia sealed the win just before full-time.
- Garcia will be pushing for a place in the starting line-up after she was introduced at half-time in the game against South Africa with Amanda Sampedro and Vicky Losada having it all to do to retain their places after they were both taken off at the interval following poor showings.
Neither of these teams set the world alight with their performances in their opening matches in Group B but will have to be at the top of their game in this crucial second match. Both Germany and Spain picked up victories to start their campaign but this should prove a more difficult contest. Germany will enter as favourites with the world number two ranked side possessing plenty of talent but will need to be more clinical against a Spain side that could have a different look to the 11 that started against South Africa. This should be a close match but the Germans should have enough to edge it.
