SF1 GBR v GER Save by Hinch (GBR)Posted June 20, 2015

Lily Owsley’s seventh minute goal was all that stood between Great Britain and Germany as GB earned their place at the Olympic Games in 2016 via a 1-0 win.

It was a fascinating game of cat and mouse with Great Britain taking the role of speedy counter-attackers and Germany the side with all the possession but less of the invention around the circle. As such, Lily Owsley scored from just such a counter-punch, a brilliant team move at pace that cut through the heart of the German defence.

Helen Richardson-Walsh picked out Sophie Bray who located Owsley who controlled the ball, a move that sent Kristina Reynolds too far across goal and the striker popped home for 1-0.

Nina Hasselmann almost got an instant riposte only to be denied by Maddie Hinch’s diving save. As Die Danas pushed on, though, they were more and more vulnerable at the back with Alex Danson and Bray wreaking havoc.

The latter embarked on a 70-metre run that ended with Danson chipping across the face of goal, ensuring the minimum margin remained into half-time. Eileen Hoffmann was denied by the width of the post with a behind the back deflection early in the second half while the Germans ran up a number of second half corners.

Great Britain, meanwhile, should have done better with a couple of counter-attacks. In particular, Bray was set through one-on-one with Reynolds but the keeper stood tall and saved. Several German corners were kept out in the closing stages, including two in the last two minutes, but Hinch was unbeatable for a fifth clean sheet in six games and Great Britain are off to the Olympic Games once again.
