Big Soccer Win For Germany

MONTPELLIER, France (AP) -- MONTPELLIER, France (AP) -- Germany won its Women's World Cup group for the fifth consecutive time and avoided an immediate matchup with the United States by routing South Africa 4-0 on Monday.
Germany topped Group B with a 3-0 record and will play a third place team in its round of 16 match Saturday at Grenoble.
Germany had to grind out 1-0 wins over both China and Spain, but its offense finally broke out with three goals in the first half against South Africa. That matched its total goals in its previous five World Cup games.
Two-time tournament champion Germany has not lost a match in group play since falling to Sweden in 1995.
