[JAPAN-GERMANY] Germany remained on course to become the first team to win back-to-back titles at the Under-20 Women's World Cup with another emphatic win, this time a 3-0 decision over host Japan in Tuesday's semifinals. All three goals came in the first 19 minutes.

It took only 60 seconds for the Germans to take the lead as star Dzsenifer Marozsan led Melanie Leupolz for the opening goal with her sixth assist of the tournament.

Marozsan extended the lead in the 13th minute when she lobbed goalie Sakiko Ikeda, and Lena Lotzen made it 3-0 for her sixth goal of the tournament.

Germany has now won 11 games in a row at the Under-20 Women's World Cup. It swept all six games at the 2010 finals it hosted.
