    Germany 1-0 Spain

    Germany are unbeaten in the last 14 World Cup games in which they’ve lead at half-time – 13 wins. Their last such defeat was against the USA in the 1999 quarter-finals.

    Can Spain turn it round and halt that run?

  2. Post update

    Germany 1-0 Spain

    A brave header from Spanish striker Nahikari Garcia, with Almuth Schult in the German goal diving at her. The header is off target, but it wouldn’t have counted any way as the assistant’s flag was quickly raised.

    Germany 1-0 Spain

    Sara Daebritz’s club side Bayern Munich were pretty happy with that one.

    It was the midfielder’s first international goal since June 2018, having gone seven games without scoring.


    Germany 1-0 Spain

    Advantage Germany at the break.

    Francesca Gunn:Why was the Spanish goal keeper just standing there? I mean, throw yourself over the ball. What where you waiting for? You invited the German player in.

  10. ‘A moment to forget’

    Germany 1-0 Spain

    ‘Clear it… Clear it… CLEAR IT!!! Argh!’

    Spain captain Marta Torrejon has had a moment to forget there. You just have to get rid, in that situation.

    Sara Daebritz says thank you very much. Or rather, vielen dank.

  11. GOAL – Germany 1-0 Spain

    Sara Daebritz

    It’s a scrappy goal, but Germany won’t care about that as they lead in France. It came from good work from Svenja Huth on the right wing and her cross was headed goalwards by Alexandra Popp.

    Spanish goalkeeper Sandra Panos parries the header and Marta Torrejon should clear, instead, though, she hesitates and it is a costly error asSara Daebritzslides in at the back post to bundle the ball over the line.

  12. Did you know?

    Germany 0-0 Spain

    • Germany have not conceded a first-half goal in their past 18 Fifa Women’s World Cup matches since Hanna Ljungberg gave Sweden a 41st-minute lead in the 2003 final in Carson, USA. Germany went on to win 2-1.

    Spain have seven minutes left to break that run.

  13. The sun is back

    Germany 0-0 Spain

    After that torrential rain at the start of this half, the sun has now come out.

    It’s positively June in Valenciennes all of a sudden.

    Germany 0-0 Spain

    Germany are coming into this more now and Svenja Huth finds herself free on the right side of the penalty area. She tries a low cross, but Virginia Torrecilla is well positioned at the near post to clear the danger.

    BBC Sport at Stade du Hainaut, Valenciennes

    Maybe I’m only saying this because it’s still less than 24 hours since we saw the USA score 10 goals in one half… but Germany don’t look like the force they’ll need to be to win this tournament, on this first-half showing.

    They always find a way somehow though, don’t they…

    Becca:Mapi Leon is a fantastic defender who will help resist the German attacking force, that being said I predict 1-0 to Germany!

    Germany 0-0 Spain

    Some solid goalkeeping from Spain’s Sandra Panos who comes off the line and punches Verena Schweers’ cross into the penalty area clear, just as Svenja Huth was waiting to pounce.

  19. Post update

    Germany 0-0 Spain

    Spain are very much on top at the 24-minute mark, still goalless though.

  20. Another chance, and another one for the Spanish. The ball is played square on the edge of the penalty area and Silvia Meseguer strikes it at goal, but it is inches wide.

    At the other end, our first sight of Germany as an attacking force but Giulia Gwinn, the match winner against China, can only shoot straight into the arms of Sandra Panos.
