Germany vs France will be a completely different game than Nigeria. I hope they do not drop Prinz from the starting line up because I think she will play well against France. The whole team played rubbish against Nigeria, I don't think it was Prinz fault. She wasn't getting any supply from the middle field. In addition, against Canada Prinz helped set up the two goals.

From my own perspective Nigerian side are not stubborn, but is just that they were not lucky enough. Although both teams really gave accounts of themselves. Good for the German!

Germany and France were the right teams still to go through. All the credit to Nigeria at yesterday to make it a game through and keeping it close. I think Nigeria´s tough way to play was fustrating Germany a bit and also as the tempo was a bit messed it wasn´t so suitable for Germany. Still as said, for Germany´s point of view them has to improve if them wants to win the trophy at home.

Annike Krahn, Germany defender
In comparison to the Canada game we were far more compact in defence and midfield. I don't think we had as many poor phases in our play today.
