Germany went through to the semi-finals of the World Cup and our Arsenal players were quick to show their support.

In what turned into a nail-biting match, the Germans went 1-0 down to France before scoring an equalising goal via a penalty in the dying minutes of the game, which took it to extra time. The match then went to penalties, which Germany won 5-4.

The ladies now face the USA in the World Cup semi-final on the 30th June.

Galatasaray-bound Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil both tweeted their appreciation of the ladies’ team.
