Harsh welcome – Germany:10, Ivory Coast:0

Ivory Coast were given a harsh welcome to the Women’s World Cup, with the debutants thrashed 10-0 by Germany. Silvia Neid’s Germany struck five times in the opening 35 minutes at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa, Ontario. And the floodgates widened in the final half-hour as they racked up double digits in the Group B clash.

Celia Sasic scored a first-half hat-trick and Anja Mittag also netted a treble as the pair scored Germany’s first six goals. The win was the second biggest ever at the Women’s World Cup, with Germany also holding the record (11-0 over Argentina in 2007). Sasic tapped in the easiest of goals in the third minute after a Leonie Maier cutback from the right.

Just 15 minutes in and it was 2-0, this time Sasic getting on the end of a Lena Goessling cross again from the right. Neat movement led to a third just before the half-hour mark as Mittag tucked away a finish after being put in behind by Goessling. Sasic tapped in a simple goal to make it 4-0 and Mittag side-footed in Germany’s fifth in the 35th minute. Mittag, Simone Laudehr, Sara Dabritz, Melanie Behringer and Alexandra Popp also struck late on to complete the huge win.
