South Africa 0-4 Germany, China 0-0 Spain: Women’s World Cup – as it happened



Germany earned their third win out of three in Group B after beating South Africa 4-0 in Montpellier. Melanie Leupolz opened the scoring inside 15 minutes, heading home from a corner. Sara Däbritz added a second after goalkeeper Andile Dlamini could only parry Alexandra Popp’s cross into her path.

Popp, who had missed a golden opportunity soon after Leupolz’s opener, added a third before half time. Dlamini atoned for her error in the second half with a fine save from Leubolz’s header, and was unlucky when her fingertip save from Marina Hegering bounced off the far post, turned in by Lina Magull.

Thembi Kgatlana missed an opportunity to add a consolation for eliminated South Africa, while Germany had two late goals disallowed for offside.

In the other Group B game, China got the point they needed to secure qualification in third place, despite being dominated by Spain. Peng Shimeng produced a string of late saves to deny Spain victory, but a point was enough for both sides to progress.
