Following their opening game's draw, Germany took a vital win against Italy's Ladies in the Women's European Championship in Holland. Although currently still in second spot behind Norway, both teams look hopeful to qualify for the quarter final knock out rounds. Team Eng-er-land Ladies are also on course to qualify having duffed up the Scots 6 - 0.
Previous history of winners does look good for the Germans but it's a long way to go yet.
