Germany send Super Falcons packing from 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup after 3-0 win on Saturday evening encounter at the Stade des Alpes in Grenoble.

The Two-time World Cup champion showed why they were favourites as they ultimately eased into the quarter-finals as they were never really tested by the Nigerians, but for all their success so far no goals yet conceded, four wins out of four.

Alexandra Popp's 20th-minute headed goal was allowed to stand by referee Yoshimi Yamashita after she deemed Svenja Huth was not interfering in play while in an offside position.

Then, following another VAR check, she awarded a penalty having ruled Evelyn Nwabuoku had fouled Lina Magull.

Sara Dabritz converted from the spot and Lea Schuller fired in a late third.

Either Sweden or Canada stands between the two-time winners and a place in the semi-finals.
