Germany cruised into the last sixteen as Group B winners with a comfortable 4-0 victory over South Africa and will play one of the best third placed teams in the knockout stages.
Melanie Leupolz headed them into the lead in the fourteenth minute, with her first international goal in three years, Sara Dabritz took care of a goalkeeping error to double their advantage on the half hour and Alexandra Popp made it three before half time. Lina Magull rounded off the scoring during the second half to leave the Germans in good shape as they enter the next phase of the competition.
Germany will be joined by both Spain and China after their goalless draw was enough to ensure both teams will qualify.
In a tight game of few chances, Spain had the greater of possession and dominated matters but once again found it difficult to break down their opposition's defence. Lucia Garcia shot wide early on, whilst Jennifer Hermoso drew a good save from Peng Shimeng just before half time, but these were rare opportunities to end the stalemate. China meanwhile mustered only one shot during the entire game but they were happy to pick up the point they needed to guarantee qualification as a third placed team.
