Still-growing Germany dominate South Africa at Women's World Cup

MONTPELLIER -- Germany eased into the last 16 of the Women's World Cup with a comprehensive 4-0 win over South Africa, finishing the group stage without conceding a goal.

Germany are now unbeaten through 15 matches. Although they eased past Banyana Banyana in a sun-drenched Montpellier, the Germans were at times wasteful. The score could have been far more one-sided had they found a cutting edge in front of goal. They turned to the skies for their best attacking endeavour with their aerial superiority...

Spain rallied for a win in their World Cup opener on Saturday.

Jennifer Hermoso netted two second-half penalties and substitute Lucia Garcia added a last-minute goal as Spain came from behind to beat South Africa 3-1 at the Women's World Cup on Saturday.

The first penalty came after a handball by South Africa captain Janine van Wyk and the second after...

World Cup time for Banyana Banyana to shine - Ellis

When South Africa played their first women's international after readmission to global football in 1993, they were captained by diminutive midfielder Desiree Ellis, who carried the country into a fresh era for female footballers.

Now, 26 years on, Ellis is coach of Banyana Banyana and tasked with leading the team into a brave new dawn as they debut at the FIFA Women's World Cup in France.

Ellis has succeeded where many before her failed, coaching South Africa on the game's greatest stage after decades...
