Germany dominated the first half, taking the lions share of possession and shots on target, but Thailand had a great chance to open the scoring after a rare defensive mistake by the German back line allowed Sung-Ngoen to nip the ball away.

Sung-Ngoen raced towards goal but was indecisive in the penalty area and allowed the German’s to catch up to her and put the ball out for a corner.

That spurred the German’s into action and midfielder Melanie Leupolz’s headed in from a corner soon after in the only goal of the first half.

Silvia Nied made a double change in the effort to make things more comfortable for her side with Anja Mittag coming on for Celia Sasic and Lena Petermann replacing Dzsenifer Marozsan.

Neid’s changes did just that and Germany steamrolled their opponents as Petermann scored twice and Dabritz pouncing at the far post to finish with ease and put the result in no doubt.

Germany top group B as many predicted and Thailand, like Holland, will have to wait to see if their 3rd place is good enough.

The Ivory Coast having been already knockout of the tournament made it very hard work for Norway in the last game in Canada 2015.

Even Pellerud’s side needed a huge score to overtake Germany at the summit of Group E and took an early lead after Ada Hegerberg netted on just six minutes after deftly firing home from an acute angle.

It did look like the Norwegians would achieve their enormous task but were left ruling a host of miss chances going in the break.

Norway resumed their quest for goals in the second half and increased their lead through a further goal by Hegerberg and the impressive Solveig Gulbrandsen.

But were pegged back by the diminutive forward Ange Nguessan’s thunderous hit that flew in past goalkeeper Hjelmseth with 19 minutes remaining.

Norway finish behind Germany in Group B and the Ivory Coast already had their bags packed before they faced the Norwegians.
