2019 Women’s World Cup Language: Hard-fought victory
Germany defeated China in the first of their Group B matches but only thanks to a second-half strike from Gwinn who broke the deadlock with a wonderful long-range strike. This was a hard-fought victory as China offered strong resistance and even looked dangerous on the counter, particularly in the first half. Something that is hard-fought, such as a win or victory, involves a lot of effort and that’s what Germany had to do in this game – they had to work really hard to beat the Chinese team.
2019 Women’s World Cup Language: Convert a penalty
In the second Group B game between Spain and South Africa, the Spanish needed two late penalties to win another hard-fought victory. Their top striker Jenni Hermoso converted two spot kicks late in the second half to seal a come-from-behind win. To convert here means to successfully score a goal – the player scored from the (penalty) spot would be another way of saying this.
