- Calls for structure review after fateful draw with South Korea
- Coach Voss-Tecklenburg under pressure after rejig fails
“Tears on the pitch” was the tabloid Bild’s choice of headline to sum up the distraught mood in Germany after one of the tournament favourites were driven out of the Women’s World Cup at the group stage for the first time, after their 1-1 draw with South Korea.
