There wasn’t a actor on a representation or even on a hold line currently that wouldn’t have given their right leg to make certain that we won a bronze medal.”

Germany had several opportunities to tie a diversion in a final 10 minutes.

Anja Mittag, off a giveaway flog only outward a chastisement area, found an opening and got a shot off that was scooped adult Bardsley. In a 116th minute, Schmidt got behind England’s invulnerability and headed a cranky only far-reaching of a right post.
