Yes, Group B looks like the toughest group. Too bad one of Brazil, Sweden, and North Korea will have to go home after three matches.

A Germany - Colombia final is very possible at this point. Hopefully Marta will take Brazil way further next year

Germany beat Nigeria 2-0 in the final, before 24,633 spectators.

2-minute highlights video

Excerpt from the FIFA match report:

After winning all three of their group matches, Germany comfortably overcame Korea DPR 2-0 in the quarter-finals before hammering their Asian neighbours, Korea Republic, 5-1 in the last four. The final was a match of the utmost quality in terms of both tactics and strength, and ended in a 2-0 victory for the Germans over Nigeria.

Striker Alexandra Popp opened the scoring in the final, and the 19-year-old emerged as her side's chief protagonist as the Europeans marched to the title. Popp's ten goals earned her the adidas Golden Boot award for finishing as the tournament's top scorer, as well as the Golden Ball for being the best player at Germany 2010.
