    This is the moment for heroes and surely Gaetane Thiney is France's? Jessica Houara crosses behind the defence and Thiney is there at the far post, the goal at her mercy, Nadine Angerer resigned to beating beaten. Wide!

    Whole-hearted challenge by Tabea Kemme denies Louisa Necib the chance to let fly from the edge of the area, the Germany defender - breathing easy now Elodie Thomis is not on the pitch - sticks out a foot to block the French midfielder's shot.

    A chance for France to double their lead as they are given a free-kick right on the edge of Germany's area. It is Louisa Necib territory, but Camille Abily takes it, rolling the ball to Necib, who smacks the wall with her shot and eventually it is an easy catch for Nadine Angerer. 

  64. CLOSE!

    Oh, that was a chance for Germany! The ball pinballs inside the France area and eventually falls to Simone Laudehr, who has the goal at her mercy, but she skews her shot inches wide of the post.

    Game on then. What will Germany's response be? They exited the 2011 World Cup, which was on German soil, at the quarter-final stage and they won't want to be heading up early again. Just over 20 minutes to find an equaliser.

    Germany 0-1 France - Louisa Necib

    The French players celebrate

    Just as it looked like France would be ruing missed chances, they snatch a deserved lead! The goal comes from a poor clearing header on Germany's part as a long ball into the box is headed weakly by Babett Peter and Louisa Necib is there to pounce, picking up the ball on the edge of the box and firing home via a deflection.

  72. CLOSE!

    Dzsenifer Marozsan

    Dzsenifer Marozsan stands over the free-kick and smashes it over the wall and towards the far corner, but Sarah Bouhaddi flings herself at it to the push the ball behind for a corner. Marozsan has certainly made a difference, unsettling France.

    At the other end, Louisa Necib fires in a free-kick and Marie Laure Delie jumps to meet it. The ball is a bit too high and skims off the top of her head, with a frustrated Wendie Renard behind her. It was the defenders all day long as she came steaming in at the far post. Need to shout up Wendie.

  77. CLOSE!

    Germany 0-0 France

    Much better from Germany as they finally work Sarah Bouhaddi in the France goal, and substitute Dzsenifer Marozsan played a big part in it. The midfielder worked the ball towards the edge of the area before squaring a pass to Celia Sasic, whose low drive brings out a diving save from Bouhaddi.

    Germany won't often be on the wrong end of stats like these. They had just 41.6% possession and just six shots on goal. Two of those were on target - the same amount as France. In total, the French had 13 shots on goal. Dominant, but evidently wasteful.

    France are bossing this game with 55% of the possession and they continue to have the German defence on the back foot as Marie Laure Delie launches herself at a cross, but the ball is too close to Nadine Angerer, who gathers at the second attempt after fumbling her initial catch.

    Amandine Henry has already scored one belter at this tournament - against Mexico - and she wants another. Louisa Necib gives her the ball about 30 yards from goal and Henry has a go, her shot's well-hit, but Nadine Angerer is behind it all the way.

    France's Amel Majri wants a penalty as her shot hits Anja Mittag. Referee is having none of it and rightly so, with replays showing the ball hit her chest.

  98. CLOSE!

    Germany 0-0 France

    Top defending by Wendie Renard, although I doubt she knew much about it! Lana Goessling sends a free-kick into the area, it runs through to the unmarked Simone Laudehr, who smacks a volley into Renard's chest, the ball eventually runs out to Leonie Maier, whose rasping drive is held by Sarah Bouhaddi. 

    This might not be the Germany we've seen so far in this tournament, but they are still capable of looking dangerous.

    Women's World Cup

    So we've got 'Mini Messi' at the Women's World Cup in the shape of England's Fran Kirby, and tonight 'the Female Zidane' is in action. 

    France playmaker Louisa Necib is frequently compared to former Real Madrid midfielder Zinedine Zidane.

    She plays in a similar position, they both grew up in Marseille and both are said to possess incredible technique on the pitch. 

    "Zidane is a role model for me," Necib has said previously. "He was always the player that I most enjoyed watching. I love beautiful football. It's a vehicle for enjoyment on the football pitch. And without enjoyment, it's impossible to play well."

    "The French tend to have a more deliberate build-up but also have skilled, powerful players and good depth. Striker Eugenie Le Sommer is having a fine tournament and winger Elodie Thomis, when in the mood, is a handful while Wendie Renard is a commanding centre-half and Amandine Henry is currently outshining the highly rated Louisa Necib in midfield."

    Back to my mention earlier about the potential for a bit of needle between these two [20:10 BST entry]. France lost 4-2 to Germany in an eventful group stage at the 2011 World Cup but the French highlighted their credentials as a rising power in women's football when they beat Germany 2-0, on German soil, in a warm-up match in October.

    "We know Germany's mentality and how much that defeat on home soil will have hurt," says France winger Elodie Thomas. "Maybe that makes things even worse, and I'm sure we scared them. 

    "But this will be different, as this is an elimination game. Germany is a good team, but France is a good team, too, and we've made a lot of progress."   

  124. The quarter-finals

    As well as today's quarter-final games, there are two more to come with defending champions Japan playing Australia at 21:00 BST on Saturday before England's face hosts Canada on Sunday at 00:30 BST.

    England manager Mark Sampson has been facing the cameras ahead of their quarter-final with hosts Canada on Saturday night.

    Quote Message: Canada have only beaten us once in the last five meetings. If they've sussed us out, they've kept that quiet so far.

  131. Post update

    Germany v France (21:00 BST)

    Still unsure about the Clash of the Titans billing? 

    The two sides steamrollered their way to the Women's World Cup, winning all 10 of their qualifying games while Germany scored 62 goals on the road to Canada, conceding four, while France scored 54 goals, letting in just three. 

    At the tournament itself, both have won three of their four games so far, Germany beating Sweden 4-1 in the last 16 to reach the last eight, while France saw off South Korea 3-0. 

    These are undoubtedly two teams in form. Oh, and there is a bit history between them as well. Before we get to that, the teams...

  134. The heavyweights v the confident upstarts

    Germany v France (21:00 BST)

    Women's World Cup

    Germany versus France. Undoubtedly a game that could pass for being the final of the Women's World Cup but, as it is, we get this treat a little earlier. 

    The Germans are the heavyweights of women's football, winning the World Cup in 2003 and 2007, while France are a rising force, and have not lost to European opposition in 48 matches, winning 42 of those.

    One of these teams is going home tonight, so strap yourself in for a real humdinger.

  135. Titans will clash

    Clash of the Titans

    Back in 1981, the film 'The Clash of the Titans' was released. While no Titans - Greek gods - actually clashed, or were even in the film, the phrase has come to attach itself to big sporting matchups. 

    Tonight, at the Women's World Cup, we have one such matchup - Germany versus France.

    It is the world number one versus the world number three, the meeting of two powerhouses in women's football, the battle between two of the favourites to win the tournament in Canada.

    And yet we're only at the quarter-final stage...
