Um, ok. Tancredi going for the win!
46' 1-1 Germany subs in (1 of 3) #5 Annike Krahn for #2 Josephine Henning.
46' 1-1 Canada subs in (1 of 3) #10 Ashley Lawrence for #17 Jessie Fleming.
59' 1-1 Yellow card on Marozsán.
60' 1-2 Wilkinson fk at circle top wide right, sailed to 7m 1/5 left. Tancredi judges it better, outjumps #14 Peter retreating too nicely, drills a header bazooka into back left high.
64' 1-2 Canada subs in (2 of 3) #8 Diana Matheson for #13 Sophie Schmidt.
68' 1-2 Germany subs in:
- (2 of 3) #9 Alexandra Popp for #10 Dzsenifer Marozsán
- (3 of 3) #16 Melanie Leupolz for #17 Isabel Kerschowski.
69' 1-2 Canada subs in (3 of 3) #15 Nichelle Prince for #6 Deanne Rose.
79' 1-2 Germany chip from circle right to 25m arc left, Popp chases right-to-left and flicks a back-header to 16m center. Mittag runs on, shoots to center low, Labbé smothers. Still trying.
Wow! Canada's experience from having to play the USWNT a lot and their players' NWSL experience is really showing in this match. Germany on the decline.
Wow! Things are heating up in Group F.
Tancredi shows up big in the Olympics. She did in 2012 and is doing it again. I have issues with her sportsmanship (or lack thereof) demonstrated in the past but you can't deny she is delivering.
Germany really not impressive in this tournament. They are lucky they equalized against Australia or they might be eliminated outright today. Still could be I suppose depending on how third place teams finish out. They are lacking a top quality forward on the level of Prinz, Grings or Sasic from years past. Also lacking creative players in midfield like Meinert, Wiegmann, Lingor. The current crop lack a certain dynamism.
This is not the Germany of old, they lack a clinical finisher.
PS: Shame that living legend, Christine Sinclair, won't be getting any minutes today.
66' 6-0 AUS square pass to circle top, uncontested look-and-pass to Heyman at 27m center, back-cutting the stumbling CBs. Heyman dribbles to 13m left post, flicks right outstep under Magwede's leftward sprawl, into back right low.
75' 6-0 Australia subs in:
- (2 of 3) #2 Larissa Crummer for #11© Lisa De Vanna
- (3 of 3) #12 Ellie Carpenter for RB #9 Caitlin Foord.
75' 6-0 Zimbabwe subs in (3 of 3) #11 Daisy Kaitano for #8 Rejoice Kapfumvuti.
81' 6-0 Logarzo crosses from 14m wide right to 9m center. Magwede catches high as Crummer(?) jumps into her and delivers a torso-on-torso impact -- hip-to-hip? Magwede stays down, trainers come out.
83' 6-0 Magwede resumes.
US - Germany potentially in round 1? there's a chance!
looks like Neid is ready to retire. She looks like she's on vacation mode and doesn't give a sh** anymore.
Yeah her team looks tired, stagnant and out of ideas. Very mechanical.
Oh No! Tancredi got "Trancredied" (i.e., stomped)!
I believe "Tancredied" refers more specifically to a head stomp.
The Aussies are one goal away from sending Germany to meet the USA in QFs, right?
No. Zimbabwe just scored.
90' 1-2 Kemme cuts upfield, Prince lunges and trips her down. Foul, yellow card on Prince. +3'.
90+1' (of +3') 1-2 Henning fk at 22m wide left, bent to 13m left post, Tancredi stoops behind 1 and heads away over own bar.
90+2' (of +3') 1-2 Germany right ck, to 9m 1/3 right, Popp heads down to goalline right post, Bélanger kick-saves over own bar.
Anja & Alexandra couldn't hit a barn door from 10 feet away. What's wrong with them today?
One of the most nicely worked team goals of the tournament by...Zimbabwe of all teams!
They've also scored in each game, against three world powers.
Whatever Canathug Canathug Canathug Canathug. We will beat you guys later later later.
Nice for a good-bye goal.
90+1' (of +5') 6-1 Zimbabwe longball(?) up mid-right, #5 Emmaculate Msipa outruns van Egmond(?) to 8m mid-right, shoots right instep on the run under Arnold's right hand, across mouth off left post low, bounces to -1m right post.
90+3' (of +5') 6-1 CB #3 Makoto two cutbacks at 8m wide left, stretches for a left-foot cross -- just as Logarzo stretches and blocks foot with her shoe. Foul, Makoto stays down. Yellow card on Logarzo.
90+5' (of +5') 6-1 #3 Makoto stretchered into near touch.
Canada win group F!
And what's their reward for beating the other 3 teams in their group... having to play France! Ouch!
Some history there, if they face off again. In 2011, France demolished a hapless Canada 4-0 in the group stage. Canada exacted revenge in London a year later in the bronze medal game, Matheson with the stoppage time goal for 1-0.
Exactly. Germany get China, an easier rival.
This is why tournaments where the number of teams is not a power of two suck.
So gutted for the Australians. Deserved the KO stages more than the Germans do.
