After a 4-0 swing win over Denmark, Germany cemented its favorite against Spain. Paul and Bob were already 2-0 up before the break. Germany didn’t get into any trouble after that and are already sure of the quarter-finals and the group win.
After both Germany and Spain’s successful start to this European Championship, a second win was a guarantee of a place in the quarter-finals for both. Germany quickly gained the upper hand after a weak defense from Sandra Banus.
The Spanish goalkeeper gave the ball to Clara Ball who gratefully capitalized: 1-0. In the half hour, Alexandra Pope doubled the score.
Germany could easily defend the top spot after that and could score a third goal after the break.
Spain can no longer build their grip and will have to work hard in a head-to-head meeting with Denmark on Saturday to make sure they reach the quarter-finals. The second-placed teammate in Group B may be waiting for a showdown with hosts England.
