After the break Germany stood very compact and South Africa didn't get lots of opportunities to open up the game. Nevertheless Bubolz was forced to show his qualities after a ball from Tsolekile which was passed by Madsen. Then he misjared a long ball which hit the post, he kept again the reflected ball shot by Denzil Dolley. Now Hibbert has a lot of good saves against Montag, Nevado, Sebastian Draguhn and Sebastian Biederlack. Oliver Hentschel hit over the cross-bar.
After a penalty corner in minute 56 C. Zeller flicked the ball into Andrew Cronje who kept on running towards him. Cronje was injured and was carried from the pitch.
During the last minutes Germany became strong again and they made a goal every second minute. Witthaus saved a pass by Weißenborn, passed to Draguhn who saw the free Hentschel at the post. So the 3:0 was marked by him. The 4:0 scored by Witthaus who deflected free hit by Weißenborn into the left high-angle in minute 66. The last point was marked by Biederlack who used the rebound of a stroke by C. Zeller. That was also goal number 100 at this World Cup.
The German coach Bernhard Peters was very happy with the performance of his team today, in especially the five goals made him happy because that is nice for the German goal-difference. Moreover he commended the pressing in the second half.
