Germany defeat reigning Champions
 Women's Football News 6 Aug 2014
 
FIFA Under-20 Women's World Cup holders United States suffered a 2-0 defeat to Germany in their opening match as the 2014 tournament got underway in Canada. 
 
In the undoubted game of the day at the Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton and in front of an attendance of 10,101, the teams were goalless at the break and the Germans should have taken the lead early in the second half when captain Lina Magull shot against the post with the goal at her mercy. However ten minutes later, Germany did go ahead through a powerful strike from Lena Petermann which crashed in off the bar. Theresa Panfil wrapped up the points for Maren Meinert's side late on via a shot from the edge of the area.
 
The other match in Group B ended with honours even as Brazil and China shared a 1-1 draw. Brazil looked to have been on their way to victory when Byanca put them in front midway through the second half but China battled back to earn themselves a share of the spoils with a minute left on the clock, Zhang Zhu bundling the ball home after Brazil had failed to deal with a free kick.
 
It was not a good day for the hosts either as Canada went down to a surprise 1-0 defeat at the hands of Ghana. 14,834 spectators turned up to cheer on the home side at the National Soccer Stadium in Toronto but it was Sherifatu Sumaila who opened the scoring for the Ghanaians with 22 minutes gone. Emma Fletcher hit the post for Canada who stepped up the pace after the break but they could not find a way through and face an uphill task if they are to qualify for the latter stages.
 
Top spot in Group A though goes to Korea DPR who were narrow 2-1 winners over Finland. Kim So Hyang head Korea DPR in front on the quarter hour and Choe Yun Gyong added a second with a thunderous 25-yard strike. Finland hit back with an even better goal, Sini Laaksonen firing into the top corner from the edge of the area, but they could not get back on terms despite a concerted effort during the second half. 
 
England make their bow in the tournament on Wednesday evening when they take on South Korea at the Moncton Stadium. Kick off is at 9pm BST and the match will be televised live on Eurosport.
