England Go Down 3-0 In Germany
17/07/2008 
 
 Germany concluded their Olympic preparations with a comfortable 3-0 victory over England in front of a vocal crowd of 9,185 at the Sportpark Unterhaching this evening.

The match was Head Coach Silvia Neid's final chance to see her squad in action before having to cut six players from her 24 player squad by midnight.

England started confidently and after a short passing move on ten minutes, only the last-gasp intervention from Ariane Hingst - making her 150th appearance for Germany - stopped Karen Carney getting in on goal.

After quarter of an hour though Rachel Brown was left holding her head in despair, as Germany took the lead.

A hopeful punt forward by right back Kerstin Stegemann saw the England backline looking to the assistant referee for offside but the flag stayed down.

Brown - in her first game since the Euro 2009 qualifier at home to Spain in November 2007 - raced off her line but 30 yards out airkicked, leaving Sandra Smisek the simple task of rolling the ball into the net for her 33rd international goal.

England heads didn't go down though, and Kelly Smith put a shot wide after a neat passing move, with England's players involved in regular positional changes.

However the home side came close to doubling their lead on 37 minutes. The ever dangerous Birgit Prinz can almost 'disappear' for periods of the game, but after holding off the challenge of Anita Asante, the muscular striker just dragged her shot inches wide of Rachel Brown's far post.

At half-time Germany made three changes and ten minutes inti the second half they extended their lead. Unsurprisingly it was Birgit Prinz who did the damage. Simone Laudehr sold Jill Scott a dummy on the right side of England's penalty area and floated a left footed cross that Prinz dispatched from six yards, rising between Faye White and Alex Scott.

On the hour Hope Powell made two changes. Lindsay Johnson came on for Alex Scott, whilst Emily Westwood moved into central defence, with Anita Asante moving into midfield and Kelly Smith replacing Lianne Sanderson in the centre forward role.

However Germany went further ahead in the 70th minute. Faye White was dispossessed 30 yards from goal by Prinz and as the England skipper battled to atone for her error, Prinz tumbled and the referee pointed to the spot.

After a delay for three more substitutions, another half-time replacement Melanie Behringer stepped up to blast her penalty beyond Rachel Brown to make it 3-0.

Germany continued to hold the ascendancy in the final period and despite some slick interplay couldn't add to their lead. On this performance, the reigning world and european champions will be highly fancied to add the Olympic crown to their trophy cabinet.

England: Rachel Brown, Alex Scott (Lindsay Johnson), Casey Stoney, Fara Williams, Faye White (c), Anita Asante, Karen Carney (Sue Smith, 77mins), Jill Scott, Lianne Sanderson (Emily Westwood, 61mins), Kelly Smith, Rachel Yankey

Nope but have a big satellite dish that picks up lots of channels.

It was good fun to watch some womens football again but hmmmm that wasn't the best display for our England women.
Poor Brown with her air kick (which Stoney copied in the 2nd half!), White trying to fool Prinz whilst being the last player back is not the best of ideas, so of course Prinz just nicked it off her and left her and another defender chasing her back into the box and the ref gave a penalty when they tried to tackle her, but I don't think it was.
The 2nd goal was poor from us, Prinz was allowed to just drift in unmarked and head the ball in (maybe something to do with White and Asante not communicating well after the transfers ;)).
We were outmuscled a lot, they knew where we were passing, they were too fast and we panicked everytime we managed to get an attack together, and as the game went on the passing got worse. But the good thing is that Brown did some good goal keeping after her initial blunder.
I don't remember Sanderson being involved in a single attack, disappointing, whenever she did get the ball a german player would just knock her off it and that was the end of our attack.

To be honest I am surprised Brown got straight back in.
It does confirm the hierarchy though which means Chamberlain was used as an interim player warming up he place for Brown  :o

does it bode well, if the combined Arsenal/Everton 11, the top 2 in the league last season were crushed by the Germans......I agree with Shlj, very surprised that Brown got back in so quick, would have liked Danni Hill to play, but she was away with the young uns.....

Browns rustiness showed then....not good if she is in the shop window...........

I hope she doesn't just walk into the Everton side, but I suspect she will, not sure about her being in the 'shop window' unless it's Lidi's....

Nah I think Brown played well apart from her air kick, I'd have her as 1st pick, the other two goals weren't her fault.

remembering that the English girls are mid way through their close season and the Germans have been playing for a bit recently.....they were probabaly a bit rusty, slow and out of condition...........a bit like Derby County were in last seasons Premier League. ;D

Anyone know if theres any highlights to be scheduled?
