THE GERMANY WORLD CUP WIN
Mon, 27 Jun 2011 11:46 AM EDT

Germany kicked off the Women’s World Cup on Sunday with a comprehensive win as they defeated Canada 2-1 prior to the crowd of over 73,500 fans erupting at the Olympic Stadium. Both Celia Okoyino Da Mbabi and Kerstin Garefrekes scored in favor of the host nation in the opening game. Christine Sinclair started in the half with a broken nose manage to score the one goal for Canada owing to a free kick in the eighty second minute of the game. Football spreads

This was the first goal that the defending champs have managed to concede in the World Cup since back in 2003. Canada has managed to lose to Germany for a good 10 times that they have met. The game was part of the opening of the World cup and took place post the ceremony in which the globe was peeled to show a mirror ball that reflected the mood of the fans. There were then helium soccer balls released into the sky.

Among the many VIPs were German President Christian Wulff, Chancellor Angela Merkel as well as FIFA’s president Sepp Blatter who were at the game. Just a few hours earlier France managed to defeat Sinsheim in a 1-0 win which was the first game of their three week tournament.

Germany was on the offence starting on top of Group A, which posed quite a bit of trouble for Canada’s defense which resulted in a corner kick at the second minute. Sinclair would have scored in the sixth minute for Canada but she shot the ball over the bar which Germany’s Nadine Angerer (goalkeeper) was thankful for. Football betting lines

On the other end it was Erin McLeod who pulled of a great save which denied Behringer a goal. But there was nothing she could have done to stop the goal in the 10th minute from Garefrekes when the midfielder rose and met Babett Peter’s deep cross. The German defense looked well organized and managed to restrict Canada to just one free kick prior to Diana Matheson’s shot over to the net in the 29th.

Canada looked confused and really didn’t have anything in the way of an answer for Germany’s offence. However it was just Sinclair’s free kick which managed to shove through the German defense. Baseball lines
