Catching up on Germany action: the women’s national team triumphed 3-0 over Denmark in the Nations League on Friday. The win moves the Frauen to first place in the group over the Danes on goal differential (11 to 5) and with everything in their own control heading into Tuesday’s final group stage match against last-place Wales.

Wolfsburg’s Alexandra Popp opened the scoring in the 13th minute after Bayern Munich winger Klara Bühl played in Hoffenheim left-back Sarai Linder for a beautiful cross. Popp, as the striker so often does, found herself an opening in the opponent box and pounced with a deft header.

Popp’s club teammate Marina Hegering doubled the advantage in similar fashion not long after following a corner from Bühl.

Bühl finally got on a goal herself after getting a nice feed from Sjoeke Nüsken (Chelsea FC) in stoppage time at the end of the match.

“We have everything in our hands. That’s exactly what we wanted, and that’s what we deserve,” said Bayern Munich’s Sydney Lohmann — who also flashed danger in the German attack but had to lament her own finishing — after the match (via 90min.de).

Highlights and full match are both available on YouTube.
