Clinical European giants thrash Colombia 4-0 to become the first team to enter quarters.

Clinical European giants thrash Colombia 4-0 to become the first team to enter quarters.
Germany produced a combination of sublime skills and brute power as they laid bare Colombia’s defensive frailties with a clinical 4-0 victory in their pre-quarterfinal match in the U-17 World Cup.

Captain and star striker Jann- Fiete Arp (7th and 65th) struck twice while Yann Bisseck (39th) and John Yeboah (49th) scored a goal each to help Germany reach the quarter-finals.




If Brazil happen to win their prequarter finals, it will be a mouthwatering quarter-final clash between the colts teams of the two footballing giants.
Germany had struggled to get the goals against their opponents in a relatively easier Group C but their strikers had a field day today, taking cracks at will as the Colombian defence put up an apology of a performance.




All the goals scored by Germany were defensive bloopers committed either by Colombian goalkeeper Kevin Mier or the back four.
On certain occasions, the defensive mistakes reached upto comical proportions.
The Colombians, who had broke Indian hearts beating hosts 2-1, had finished second in Group A but today was a forgettable night.
Their defence was woeful today for a South American side in a global showpiece event.




Their right winger Juan Panaloza, who scored both the goals against India, had an off day as he was checked by the German defenders for most part of the match.
Their another key player Leandro Campaz did not start the match and by the time he was introduced in the second half, Colombia were already 0-2 down.
The well-built Germans did not allow the Colombians to play their passing game by using long balls and winning most of the aerial duels.
They also matched the speed of the Colombians and exploited the defensive woes of the South Americans to the hilt.




Their right winger Yeboah and his left counterpart Dennis Jastrzembski were outstanding with their dangerous runs down the flanks while Arp was as deadly as ever.
Arp, who recently made his Bundesliga debut for Hamburg, took his tally of goals to four with twin strike. He had scored two goals out of his side’s five in the group stage.
Germany took an early lead to seize the initiative in the match.
From a Yeboah through pass, Arp found himself in a one-on-one with goalkeeper Mier.




The German striker’s first touch was not cleanly collected by the goalkeeper and the ball landed back to Arp who curled a left-footer to the top left corner of the net.
In the 10th minute, in a mix up, the Colombian goalkeeper Mier lost the ball well outside his zone but luckily he recovered and collected the ball. The second German goal came in the 39th minute as the Colombians allowed an umarked Yann Bisseck to make a powerful header from the centre of the box to the bottom left corner off a net from a corner by Shaverdi Cetin.
Germans continued their domination in the second session too as they took no time in making it 3-0.




Off a clearance from the German half, the Colombian defence, playing a high line, was caught napping and skipper Arp was alone with an onrushing goalkkeper but he unselfishly set up Yeboah to slot the ball into an empty net. The fourth German goal was a defensive howler as Guillermo Tegue kocked the ball onto the body of Arp while trying a backpass to his goalkeeper.
USA blank Paraguay 5-0
Three goals by Tim Weah helped USA to an emphatic 5-0 victory over Paraguay in their Round of 16 clash at the in New Delhi yesterday evening.




The opening half saw Paraguay have plenty of possession, but USA created the better chances and led at the break through Weah’s strike on 19 minutes. Fine work between Andrew Carleton and Ayo Akinola set up the PSG man to score his first goal of the tournament.
USA would double their advantage shortly after the break, with Weah scoring his second of the match and a real candidate for goal of the tournament. From his left flank. Andrew Carleton added a third goal before supplying captain Josh Sargent to make it four. Weah then completed his hat-trick.
