    EDMONTON, Canada – In a rematch of the final two years earlier, Germany turned tables on the United States, posting at 2-0 win on Tuesday in the opening match for each in the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup on Tuesday at Commonwealth Stadium.

    The result was a measured level of revenge after the Americans lifted the trophy following a 1-0 triumph in 2012 at Tokyo’s National Stadium.

    On this occasion, Germany found the back of the net twice in the last 25 minutes to secure the Group B points.

    Lena Petermann struck first in the 65th minute, receiving a Pauline Bremer through ball and firing home an effort off the underside of the crossbar.

    With the U.S. pushing for an equalizer, Theresa Panfil doubled Germany’s advantage with a shot from the perimeter of the 18-yard box.

    The U.S. returns to action on Friday against Brazil.
