Second quarter-finalist announced: German solidity beats Spanish combination football

The second quarter finalist at the womens European Championships is announced: after England, Germany also joins the last eight. The German women certainly did not have an easy time against Spain, but stayed on their feet against the better football opponent on their own will.
Germany-Spain 2-0 Both favorites had impressed in their opening game, although Spain had already scored a goal against Finland in minute 1. La Roja was after just three minutes after the facts on Tuesday evening. Keepster Sandra Paños handed in the ball to Klara Bühl, who mercilessly punished the mistake: 1-0.
Spain took control, had the ball almost constantly, but bit a bit into the German solidity. The second bet between the posts also resulted in a hit: Alexandra Popp headed 2-0 from a corner by Felicitas Rauch. The freezing Germany did not succumb to the Spanish pressure and seemed to make a third hit ten minutes before time. However, Tabea Waßmuth was whistled back for offside.
Denmark-Finland 1-0 Nevertheless, Germany is already on top of the game and Denmark and Spain have to fight for second place in the pool. The Danish women booked a stuffy victory over Finland earlier in the evening. Keepster Tinja-Riikka Korpela foiled the biggest opportunity for Nadia Nadim and Finland held for over seventy minutes. In the final phase, however, the losing finalist of the previous edition still struck. Stine Ballisager Pedersen hit the bar and star player Pernille Harder gave the final touch. Denmark and Spain meet at Brentford stadium on Saturday.
