reports from Amstelveen
Maggie Souyave, the England coach, will have learnt little from watching Germany, England's opponents this afternoon, beat Ireland 4-0 in their second game yesterday, as England rested after their wins against Belgium and France in the women's European Cup.
After Natascha Keller had given the Germans the lead with a crashing shot from an acute angle in the 11th minute, the Irish were never really in the game, despite of a series of brave saves from the goalkeeper, Sandra O'Gorman.
The English side had a light training session yesterday and reported no injury problems, although Karen Brown is suffering from a badly bruised thumb. England expect to announce an unchanged team.
