Germany's women's soccer team has returned home to a rousing welcome in Frankfurt. They earned an unprecedented sixth European championship win, defeating Denmark 1:0 in Solna, Sweden on Sunday.
The draw has been held for the 2018 World Cup, which kicks off in Russia next summer. Germany will open the defense of their 2014 World Cup title against Mexico, before facing Sweden and South Korea in Group F.
The World Cup draw produced no obvious "group of death," but Germany certainly have it tougher than most other top seeds. No game is ever easy for the title holders, but Group F will at least keep them on their toes.
Peaks and troughs are part and parcel of a young player's career but Renato Sanches has taken that to the extreme. After an incredible breakout year in 2016, the on-loan Bayern Munich midfielder is at his lowest ebb.
Denmark's football association has reached an agreement that will allow the country's women's team to play a World Cup qualifying match next week. This came after a match had been canceled due to a dispute over pay.
