German soccer fans will be ecstatic with the latest news as Germany sees off a surprise Austria side in the quarter-finals of the Euro Championships. The team has a fine record against Austria, with nine wins without a defeat in the group stages. In this match, Germany will go for a ninth consecutive title. But the Austrians can feel proud of their performance, as they fought with all their might.
The two sides played high-quality ding-dong in the opening half and had a number of opportunities to score. Austria’s defence was solid and the team dominated possession, but they had trouble converting on their opportunities. The team had three good chances, including a penalty kick in the 13th minute that was saved by Popp. Meanwhile, in the second half, German striker Marina Georgieva hit the post and missed a chance for a second.
After conceding a goal, the team hit the woodwork twice. The first came from a Svenja Huth free-kick, while Georgieva hit the post with a header. After the break, Austria’s goalkeeper Merle Frohms made a poor clearance. The second came in the 86th minute, as Germany hit the crossbar with a 40-yard effort from a corner.
After winning the group-stage match against Spain, the team won their semi-final clash against England. The Germans were ahead at the halfway point, but Austria had a chance to score in the first half but failed to clear a corner delivered by Verena Hanshaw. After half-time, Germany were 2-0 ahead, and the second half was a different story. Austria’s goalkeeper was forced to make a bad clearance from a corner kick to prevent Magull from scoring.
France are still undecided after the first half, with Germany holding the advantage in possession. However, the Austrians have never beaten Germany at a major tournament. A record crowd of 62,544 is expected at Wembley Stadium. A record attendance is expected for the UEFA Women’s EURO. The final will take place on July 21.
The Germans are an eight-time European champion. The last time they reached the semifinals was in 2016. The next time they meet will be in the 2022 World Cup. The European Championships are held in France and England, which both have a good chance of reaching the semi-finals. So if you are hoping for an upset, watch out for the next few games.
After the quarter-finals, Germany will play either France or the Netherlands. France, meanwhile, will face the winner of Austria and the Netherlands in the final. The Dutch, meanwhile, will face France in the heavyweight semi-final. The Netherlands and France will play each other in the other semifinal, with the winner going on to face England in the final.
