    07' 0-0 Däbritz(?) chips from 27m mid-left to 8m 6-right, Maier back-cuts the defense and dive-heads across mouth. Zhao Lina dives and touches it just wide left.

    22' 0-0 Oddly, China ae doing to Germany what Sweden just did to USA: they draw two lines behind circle back and let Germany have the ball up to midfield. Germany keep probing the center with ground passes, but nothing clicks. China are very quick moving laterally to close spaces away.

    24' 0-0 Zhao Lina quacks a gk into right touch, sticks her tongue out. Germany probe up wide left, RB #4 Gao clears into touch. China have already decided to live or die by their defense, so they don't mind just hoofing a ball out.

    25' 0-0 Germany switch to Mittag at box top left, one-touch header down mid-left but nobody was making a run.

    25' 0-0 Maier chases down wide right, loses it over.

    Looks like @Gilmoy lost interest in pbp posts for the USA-Sweden match.

    I don't blame you.

    32' 0-0 Germany right ck to 8m center, headed away. Marozsán chases down left touch, hops a defender, stretches to keep ball half-in. Cross to spot, Bartusiak hops for an awkward chest-high right roundhouse, floats it high.

    33' 0-0 Germany's CBs ping across circle back. China's lone chaser is at circle center, their line of 4 is across circle back. Then again, they play like this all the time :)

    34' 0-0 Behringer shoots from 30m mid-right to right post, Zhao Lina catches chest-high.

    36' 0-0 Behringer dribbles to 35m mid-left, chips to Däbritz at arc top left. High bounce into box, Däbritz turns to 13m mid-left and can't settle it, rushed right instep volley pops over right 90.

    HT 0-0.

    46' 0-0 China subs in (1 of 3) #11 Wang Shanshan for #10 Yang Li. I guess Yang was the CF, after all.

    46' 0-0 Krahn swings to chip a forward pass at midfield mid-right, Wang Shanshan lunges across and blocks her shin. Krahn rolls down in pain. Foul, yellow card on Wang Shanshan.

    48' 0-0 Kemme(?) spins away at circle top left touch, passes to Popp facing away at arc tangent left. One-touch pass left to Mittag at 15m box left, quick chip across mouth -- Zhao Lina dives right, blocks ball wide right and over.

    54' 0-0 Marozsán left ck, inswing to 2m 1/6 left, Zhao double-punches it down to 4m. Däbritz pokes it back in, past Zhao -- off the goalline defender's chest. Germany chip back in from box top, defender heads away. Behringer left roundhouse shot from 22m, Zhao catches that.

    56' 0-0 Mittag spins past #2 Liu Shanshan through 2m box right, fast cross to Marozsán(?) standing at 6-top 3-left. Marozsán loads up the right roundhouse shot -- pass headed away just-in-time.

    I was referring to this thread: http://forums.bigsoccer.com/threads/q19-usa-sweden.2034437/
    EDIT: I see what you mean now.

    Yeah, I hear you about W VB; way too many matches bunched together to keep up with all the sports.

    EDIT: It would be interesting to see China win this one. No USA, no Japan, and no Germany.

    China down to ten players. Wang Shanshan with two yellow cards = red.

    57' 0-0 Germany diagonal pass bounces to arc top box right, cross over box to Marozsán at box left. 2nd cross to Däbritz at 13m mid-left, she pops ball straight up, falls backward and quacks a shot toward left post -- cleared away to circle back. #11 Wang Shanshan chases it as Krahn steps up, rash lunge into a forehead-high boot -- with Krahn's forehead thereat. Foul, 2nd yellow card = red card on Wang Shanshan. She played only 12', and fouled Krahn twice. China are down to 10 players.

    69' 0-0 Germany subs in (1 of 3) #19 Svenja Huth for #16 Melanie Leupolz. (Huth's #19 is greater than #18 because she's an injury replacement for #6 Simone Laudehr, who tore ankle ligaments after a bad tackle from Zimbabwe's Lynett Mutokuto.)

    73' 0-0 Germany flick to box top mid-right, quick shot rises to right 90, Zhao tips it over.

    74' 0-0 Kemme runs on at arc top mid-left and shoots hard to 1/6 left low, Zhao dives on it.

    You stalk China in every thread, and post the same thing, without a scrap of evidence. What proof do you have?

    China's woso don't play at all like they have any advantage. China dominate in precision sports where "juice" would have negative effect, e.g. table tennis, fencing, shooting, and diving. Do you have a beef with China's weightlifters?

    Why China, and not Russia?

    76' 0-1 Popp holds at 27m box left, plays down wide left for Kemme. Kemme passes square to box top right to Marozsán(?), one-touch diagonal pass down box left invites Kemme to 6m. Kemme crosses back to spot, Mittag hops and blocks ball out to arc top right. Behringer steps into it, blasts one-touch right foottop rising, past Zhao's reach, into 1/5 right back 3/4 high hard. China are gassed (and outnumbered), their off-ball marking fell apart and Germany can move the ball faster than China can rotate.

    78' 0-1 China pass down box right, too fast, rolls over. Brief stoppage: #13 Peng Fengyue is down at circle back right with foot pain. Trainer comes out, she limps off.

    79' 0-1 China subs in (2 of 3) #9 Ma Xiaoxu for #13 Peng Fengyue.

    81' 0-1 Däbritz chest-juggles facing away at box top mid-left, rolls a through-ball for Popp down to 5m mid-left. Ground cross blocked leftward and intercepted.

    82' 0-1 Germany are zooming around now, like the game is fun again.

    83' 0-1 #12 Wang Shuang holds up 1-v-2 at box top wide left, cut inside just beats Krahn's overreach. Wang goes to 15m mid-left, 1-v-1 on Maier -- left-flicks ball past Maier on the outside, runs to round Maier on the inside -- bumped off, falls. Foul (obstruction), penalty, yellow card on Maier.

    84' 0-1 Wang Shuang pk, left instep pull off right post low :eek: (Schult dove wrong), bounces leftward across mouth and Germany clear :coffee:

    86' 0-1 Marozsán(?) chips from circle top right, Huth offside. After the play: yellow card on Huth. For what, delay? (Kicked ball after it was dead?)

    88' 0-1 Germany subs in (2 of 3) #8 Lena Goeßling for #10 Dzsenifer Marozsán.

    89' 0-1 Goeßling runs inside-out to box top arc right, shoots wide right.

    90' 0-1 Germany subs in (3 of 3) #15 Mandy Islacker for #9 Alexandra Popp. +4'.

    90+4' (of +4') 0-1 Maier(?) crosses from circle top wide right to 22m center, #5 Wu Haiyan caught turning toward own goal -- juggles ball to a stop, but Mittag pokes it off her foot, sweeps it into her stride, through box top center to 15m. Shoots to left low, Zhao charges out and slaps it wide left.

    FT 0-1. Krahn's footwork is beatable by sharp cuts late in the game: her long legs and wide stride overload her legs, and she can't turn fast enough. Germany were good enough to keep pressing, and wore China down with headspinning sieges.

    China looked good again, but they're lacking in the sheer athleticism that would let them create rushes and scrambles. Then Bini's rigid system makes them defend for 80'+, which neuters their legs. The cruel post is another symptom: China don't have automatic-PK studs because they're not quite sharp enough to produce consistent multi-goal scorers. Still, it looks like China's long rebuild is working. They've struggled for years internally to rekindle the imagination of their young female athletes, hence their lull from the 1990s.
