Germany Thump Colombia 4-0 To Secure Quarter-Final Spot”

Germany Under-17 football team head coach Christian Wueck said on Monday that he will have to motivate his players, reminding them of their senior teams very big 7-1 victory over Brazil in case of a prospective quarter-final in Kolkata.

Germany's U-17 team on Monday overwhelmed Colombia 4-0 to enter the quarter-finals of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup where they await the victor between Brazil and Honduras. "In the end, the Germans were just more productive", stated the Colombian coach, when quizzed on his team's efforts in the game.

Germany took the lead in fortuitous circumstances seven minutes into their round of 16 clash with Colombia as Jann-Fiete Arp took advantage of a goalkeeping error to put his side in front. "We had a bad Monday against Iran".

Despite the harsh scoreline, the South American coach was full of praise for his boys and expects a bright future for them in the foreseeable future.

"I was not surprised with the performance of Colombia".

When asked whether this was the best performance from his side so far in the World Cup, Wueck was quick to respond in the affirmative. They had started the tournament slowly with a hard fought win against Costa Rica, followed by the shock loss against Iran.

"We are improving every match". Any of the doubts that had crept into German minds would have subsided as they became the first team of the World Cup to advance to the quarterfinals. "Then against Guinea and now we have matched the level that we wanted to see in the championship", the coach said. Against Brazil or Honduras, we need to score more goals.

Arp turned provider for John Yeboah to make it 3-0 and then scored his second of the game after 65 minutes to wrap up a convincing victory. "We had many chances to score and in our quarterfinal we have to score more goals". We knew Colombia are a very physical side and play a lot of long balls and high balls.

The Monday of October 16 would be a far more memorable day for Wueck and the German team. We have three or four players injured.
