Unbelievable! Two times world champions and number two team in the world, Germany was on Thursday at the Lang Park Stadium in Brisbane was held to a 1—1 draw by the Asian Tigresses, South Korea in a thrilling group H match.

 

The Asians rated number 17 in the world, introduced a viral virus into the German machine which could not function accurately though it created exciting moments that made fans difficult to sit at their stands. The German girls who had walloped Morocco that qualified ahead of them 6-0 in the same tournament played the match of their life but the god of soccer refused them approval to move on.

The seismic eruption will take years to understand by soccer pundits across the world. Germany with their bundle of talents is out of the world cup. Great lamentations!

 

35 year old Tottenham Hotspur Forward, Cho So-hyun opened scoring in the 6th minute when she got a cool pass from Y. J. Lee.

 

Alexandria Popp equalized at 42nd minute with a brilliant header from a S. Huth cross. Popp got another goal from a splendid back heel flip from Schuller to nod into goal at 67th minute but the VAR riled it offside. Popp with four goals now together with Hinata Miyazawa of Japan are current highest scorers with 4 goals each.

 

Coming from a footballing family of Andreas and Iris Popp as parents and sibling Dennis, Wolfsburg Attacker, Alexandria called Alexito my team mates spoilt the morning of the game for Morocco with a brace (two goals in a match) scored one after the other before a crowd of 27,256 fans. She had also scored against Columbia meaning she scored in every match.

 

In the first round, Germany defeated Morocco 6-0 and Columbia banged Korea 2-0; In the second round, African representatives tamed the Tigresses of Asian, Korea by a lone goal while Germany was shocked with a 1-2 defeat by Columbia.
