In a rematch of the teams in the third-place game of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, England and Germany played to a goalless draw in front of more than 6,700 at Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena in Duisburg, Germany.

At the 2015 World Cup, England beat Germany, 1-0. to take third place in June. It is the Lionesses’ best finish at the tournament.

It’s been quite the turnaround in the past year for the England, as the squad lost to Germany, 0-3, in November 2014 before a crowd of more than 45,000 at Wembley.

However, Germany had the better run of play in this game but failed to capitalize on its chances, including a just-wide effort from Babette Peter and a Dzsenifer Marozsán header that was right at England keeper Karen Bardsley.

Before the match, Germany honored retired goalkeeper Nadine Angerer and forward Célia Šašić who both retired this year, as well as presented Anja Mittag with the Bronze Boot award she won at the 2015 World Cup. Also honored with past and present players with more than 100 caps for Germany, including Renate Lingor, Silke Rottenberg, and Steffi Jones to name a few.
