    South Africa 0-3 Germany

    Free-kick to Germany on the left wing but goalkeeper Andile Dlamini gathers and does well to start a quick attack with a long kick.

    South Africa 0-3 Germany

    A very strong challenge from Lebohang Ramalepe leaves Svenja Huth in a heap on the ground. She won the ball so referee says no penalty.

    South Africa 0-3 Germany

    South Africa skipper Janine van Wyk has to put a cross behind for a corner, which Germany play short and overcomplicate.

    South Africa 0-3 Germany

    Both sides losing the ball in the early stages of the second half. South Africa’s Lebohang Ramalepe shows amazing speed to fly away down the right but then her cross is terrible.

    And with 13.6% new players on the pitch, the second half begins.

    Three changes at half-time. Germany left-back Verena Schweers is off for Carolin Simon. Schweers, who had a hand in two goals, is one booking off a ban.

    South Africa bring on Thembi Kgatlana and Rhoda Mulaudzi for Amanda Mthandi and Ode Fulutudilu.

    Germany’s Sara Dabritz is one of just three players to score two or more goals in each of the last two Women’s World Cups alongside USA’s Carli Lloyd and France’s Eugenie le Sommer.

    Dabritz has joined Paris St-Germain from Bayern Munich this summer.

    South Africa 0-3 Germany

    Germany scored as many goals in that first half as they did in their previous five full Women’s World Cup games combined.

    Hosts France have qualified for the last-16 but still need a point to ensure they finish top of Group A.

    You can watch their third and final group game live on BBC Four and the BBC Sport website from 19:45 BST.

    Will Nigeria cause a shock?


    Iwori Caleb:South Africa should come back home and sack their coach immediately.

    This is the same scoreline that the United States led Thailand by at half-time. That ended 13-0.

    Germany have now gone 20 games at the Women’s World Cup without conceding a first-half goal – Sweden were the last side to score against them in the opening 45 minutes back in 2003.


    International Break Icewoman:South Africa need to be more organised in defence.

    Sarosh Zaman:Germany will score a few more.


    South Africa 0-3 Germany

    Germany spent most of that injury time taking a free-kick and it’s half-time now.

    South Africa 0-3 Germany

    Lina Magull takes a corner, but South Africa get it away. Now a cross finds Alexandra Popp, but she just flicks a shot into the keeper’s arms.
