Germany reaches last eight with a 3-0 win over Nigeria
The only team together with the UNITED STATE not to concede a goal in the tournament, Germany has currently gotten to the last eight and in all Women’s World Cup played so far.
On her 100th appearance for Germany, Popp headed the first home after 20 minutes, as well as Daebritz, increased the tally with a penalty seven mins later, with VAR being made use of for both objectives. Schuller included the third on 86 mins as the African champions ran out of gas.
Captain Alexandra Popp, as well as Sara Daebritz, netted in fast sequence in the first half with Lea Schuller wrapping it up late on establishing a meeting with Sweden or Canada.
When they beat Nigeria 3-0 to qualify for the quarterfinals on Saturday, two-time champions Germany continued their unbeaten run at the Women’s World Cup.
