Freigang opened the scoring for the hosts after 12 minute before Feldkamp doubled the lead in the 40th minute, but Joelle Smits pulled one back for the visitors on the brink of half time.

In the second half, quick strikes from Oberdorf and Minge in the 52nd and 55th minutes, as well as Freigang’s second of the match in the 68th minute, saw the Germans reign supreme.

The three-time world champions are expected depart for France on August 2 and will begin their campaign against Nigeria four days later in Saint Malo.
