Germany punished an error-strewn display from South Africa to finish top of Group B at the Women’s World Cup.
The two-time winners had ample chances to score more than four against debutants Banyana Banyana, who leave France having failed to earn a point.
Melanie Leupolz headed in the opener, then an awful error by keeper Andile Dlamini gifted Sara Dabritz a tap-in.
Wolfsburg’s Alexandra Popp nodded in a third before the break and Lina Magull added another from a yard out.
South Africa’s coach Desiree Ellis will likely have been disappointed with her side’s poor first-half display, highlighted when Dlamini flapped at a low cross from Verena Schweers which led to Dabritz’s goal.
