Sweden dismantle Germany machine

Sweden are the first team in the knockout stage of this World Cup to come from behind and win!

Germany the FiFA female World Champions have never conceded a goal from 2007 but allowed two goals and were eliminated by Sweden who booked a semi final spot.

They’re the first side to inflict such a turnaround on Germany in the World Cup since the USA did it in 1999.

Tonight they’re gonna party. They cavort in celebration, exhausted but exhilarated.

Germany, who went into this match as favourites, look stunned … but they were very much second best today.

They couldn’t cope with Stina Blackstenius at any point, and the Linköpings striker delivered the killer blow just after the break.

Pity poor Lina Magull, whose magnificent opening goal was all for nothing/The Guardian/tiozambia.
