The Coach of the German Under-20 Women's Football team which had a hard fought opening win over Nigeria in its Group D match at the FIFA Under-20 Women's World Cup in France was a relieved woman this evening following the victory and stated that she wants the team to revive German spirits by going all the way and winning their fourth title.

Speaking at a press conference after the game, Maren Meinert had this to say:

"Gosh, that was a tough game. Those Nigerians girls are a skillful bunch and they are quick as cheetahs. Although I thought that we could have scored more goals, the Nigerian goalkeeper put in a fine performance. But I can't be disappointed because we have the three points in the bag. We had a bit of luck with that corner which lead to our goal because the initial header came off the bar and then fell beautifully for Sanders to score."

She continued:

"But we also survived a scare some minutes later after they struck the bar following a free-kick in our penalty area which fell to Efih. All in all though I am still satisfied with the win and I hope that these girls go all the way to their fourth title this year. We want to revive German spirits once again following the disastrous showing of the men's senior team at the World Cup back in June."

She concluded:

"And seeing that the last two times we won the Under-20 World Cup we defeated Nigeria in the final, I hope that this opening win is a good omen for us. In addition to which, another title would take a bit of the spotlight off of the men's senior team for a while and all the humiliation that they are still feeling following their early World Cup exit."
