Quarter Finals Preview (Saturday)
Japan’s win over the Netherlands means that the Matilda’s will face them in the quarter finals on Sunday morning. Prior to that though we will see tournament favourites Germany take on France while the United States take on China. Germany were very impressive in their win over Sweden while the U.S struggled to break down Colombia and were held out until the Colombian keeper was sent from the field. From that point on there would only be one result.
|6:00am||Germany v France:
Germany WIN ($2.15)
|The draw against Norway in the group stage seems like a long time ago as Germany has been unstoppable since. Celia Sasic scored her 4th and 5th goals of the tournament against Norway an her combination with Mittag is key to their success. France may have maintained consecutive clean sheets but won’t be able to hold out the best team in the world.|
|9:30am||China v USA:
|The Americans have been less than inspiring thus far and the $1.40 on offer is way too short. They couldn’t break down Colombia until they had a player sent off and the Chinese have been very strong defensively. With very few goals expected we could finally see extra time.|
