      24. Substitution


      25. Goal. Schüller has her second of the game as she gets on the end of Dallmann’s cross and heads beyond Clark.

      26. Half-time verdict: Germany dominated possession (72% to 28%) throughout the first half and deservedly took the lead midway through when Schüller headed home. The hosts could have added to their lead as the Cymru defence endured a busy half with the Germans enjoying 15 shots. Cymru, meanwhile, managed just one shot but that was enough to find the equaliser. Three of Grainger’s most experienced players – Fishlock, Ingle and James – all combined before the latter’s brilliant flick on found Holland, who finished off a well worked move.

      34. Yellow card


      35. Cain is fine to continue after a knock earlier in the half.

      36. The referee brandishes the first card of the evening as Oberdorf goes into the book for a late challenge on Ingle.

      37. Goal


      38. Goal. Linder’s cross picks out an unmarked Schüller, who heads home to put the hosts ahead.

      39. Fishlock breaks away down the right and finds Cain, who flicks the ball towards Holland. She looks to get a shot away but Gwinn is there to clear the ball away from the danger zone.

      40. Representing Cymru…

      41. Oberdorf gets on the end of a loose ball in the penalty area and fires a first-time effort straight the crossbar.

      50. Hayley Ladd, who earned her 85th cap in last month’s match against Denmark, was also up in front of the media.

        “I wouldn’t say we’re feeling any pressure [going into the two matches],” said Ladd. “If anything those losses are about stripping everything back and now we’re excited to build back up again. We want to be strong and resilient, especially in terms of our defensive side to get that identity back. We’re so strong in terms of our defensive foundations so it’s about adding those little bits in possession. When we come into camp it’s a positive environment so we’re really keen to get going again. We’ll be ready for the challenge and we’re excited for it.”

      51. Ffion Morgan faced the media on Tuesday and reflected on Cymru’s last outing against Denmark in October before discussing her ambitions to secure a place in the starting XI.

        “We have to take the learnings from our last game against Denmark,” said Morgan. “Football is so fast-moving that you can’t focus on the scoreline but there are positives we can take out of it. We’ve always been hard to beat and we’ve never been beaten like that, so a 5-1 loss was tough to take for us but we want to change that.

        “I’m glad that I can play by part by coming on in games and I want to put my name out there with every opportunity that I get. I want to put questions in Gemma’s head and I feel like I’m getting to a point where I can really compete for a starting shirt, so hopefully my time will come and if I get 90 or 10 minutes I’ll put my all into the performances.”

        Watch Ffion Morgan’s press conference now on RedWall+.

      52. Cymru have been hit with an injury on camp with Rachel Rowe being forced to withdraw from the double header due to an injury.
