Germany has been one of the standouts out teams at this Women’s World Cup and is the only team to have won all four matches and kept four clean sheets. They dispatched Nigeria in the Round of 16 3-0.
Alexandra Pop, Sara Dabritz and Lea Schuller found the net in a comfortable win for the two-time champions who are backed to make it five straight wins. Their mean defense is yet to be breached at this World Cup and they look a good punt to keep that run going with a win to nil.
Alexandra Pop, Lea Schuller and the team’s top scorer at this World Cup Sara Dabritz are expecting to keep their places in the team. Defensive stalwarts Marina Hegering and Sara Doorsoun-Khajeh will continue their partnership at the back as the Germans look to keep things tight.
Sweden came through a hard-fought 1-0 win over Canada in the Round of 16. The Swedes weren’t at their best but still did enough to advance thanks to a second-half strike from Stina Blackstenius.
Sweden has won three of their four matches at this World Cup and have dispatched the likes of Chile and Thailand but struggled in a 2-0 loss to the USA. Their struggles against the Americans means they could face a similar fate against the impressive Germans.
Centre backs Linda Sembrant and Amanda Ilestedt are expect to start despite their struggles against physically imposing forwards.
