GER-W vs SPA-W Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
It’ a battle between the leaders in Group B as Spain play Germany in the 2nd round, with each team hoping to keep their 100% record alive, at Stade du Hainaut.
What happened in the first game:
Germany: Far from their best in game-1. Rode their luck at times against China, and needed an individual effort from 19-year-old Giulia Gwinn to bag all 3 points. With the opponents technically more sound in the next game, the two-time champions must bring their A-Game.
Spain: Not away from complications by any means. In fact, they were in a far more precarious situation than the Germans as the defeat was a reality. For the South Africans were just 20 minutes away from snatching the win. But a late rally saw the La Roja score 3 goals, bagging all three points.
The FIFA women’s World Cup match will be played between Germany and Spain at Stade du Hainaut in Valenciennes, France. The ground has a capacity of 24,926.
The game will start at 09:30 PM (IST), on Wednesday, June 12.
