Germany can claim the top spot in Group B when they play South Africa in their final group game in the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 match at Stade de la Mosson.
Teams: Germany and South Africa
South Africa: 49
Germany are currently leading the table with two wins in as many games with both the games ending 1-0.
A win or a draw would send the two-time World Champions into the last-16 as group winners.
South Africa meanwhile lost both their games in the world cup and are out of last-16 contention. But they have earned a lot of admiration for the way they expressed themselves on the football pitch, playing an energetic, and counter-attacking style of play.
This FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 match will be played between South Africa and Germany at Stade de la Mosson, in Montpellier, France. The ground has a capacity of 32,900. The game will start at 09:30 PM (IST), on Monday, June 17.
