Germany spoil England's day

England 1 (White 44)
Germany 2 (Popp 8, Buhl 90)
att: 77,768; at Wembley Stadium

Klara Buhl scored a late winner as Germany spoiled England's party with a victory in their friendly international at Wembley Stadium.
The result was no more than Germany deserved as they were the slicker side throughout the match and although much will be made of the record attendance for an England home match, they have now gone down to their fifth defeat in seven matches.
Germany were quick out of the blocks and almost went ahead in the third minute, Lena Oberdorf receiving possession and firing a powerful left foot strike which Mary Earps did well to divert onto the bar. However five minutes later, following a good build up on the right, Kathrin Hendrich drilled a cross into the area, where an unmarked Alexandra Popp planted a firm header into the corner of the net.
The visitors continued to control matters although Hendrich was fortunate to only be shown a yellow card for a dangerous lunge on Beth Mead. The Arsenal striker was heavily involved again as England were handed a great chance to level the scores as she was brought down in the area by Merle Frohms and a penalty was awarded. Nikita Parris stepped up but her woes from the spot continued as Frohms atoned for her error, diverting her shot over the bar with a boot.
England were having their best spell of the game as half time approached and got themselves back on level terms a minute before the break, albeit with a huge slice of fortune. Keira Walsh clipped a neat cross over the German defence for Ellen White to slot past Frohms from close range. Subsequent replays showed that the striker was in an offside position as the ball was delivered into the area.
As so often happens in friendlies, a series of substitutions in the second half made the game a more scrappy affair. Dzsenifer Marozsan was continuing to dictate most of Germany's play though and she went close with a 20-yard strike which sailed just over the bar.
Germany then thought they had restored their lead as they got the ball in the net, but Lina Magull was denied by an offside flag as she tucked the rebound after Earps had saved Buhl's initial shot.
England were finding it very difficult to break down a strong German defence and were making little impression despite much endeavour.
Germany stepped up the pressure late on with Melanie Leupolz, Buhl and Lena Lattwein all having efforts blocked but just as it looked as though England had weathered the storm, the breakthrough came as injury time arrived.
It was no surprise that Marozsan was involved as she slid a pass into the path of Buhl, who teased Steph Houghton before making her way into the area and guiding a low left foot shot beyond the dive of Earps and inside the far post to put her side back in front.
Jodie Taylor had a shot saved at the other end but there was too little time for England to respond and the final whistle signalled the continuation of their disappointing run of results.
