2023 Women's World Cup: Day 15 - Crash out
The final set of matches in the group stage produced one of the biggest shocks in World Cup history when Germany failed to defeat Korea which sent them out of the tournament. When a big team are knocked out of a competition we sometimes describe it as them 'crashing out' of the tournament. So, when Germany, one of the favourites for the tournament, were eliminated the ESPN website used this phrase:
Germany crash out as another big team falls
Other words that are similar to this include:
- Eliminated - Germany have been eliminated from the World Cup.
- Knocked out - The German side were knocked out after failing to defeat Korea.
- Dumped out of - The Germans were dumped out of the tournament after only drawing with Korea.
