Germany wrapped up the 2017 SheBelieves Cup with a 1-0 victory over England Tuesday in Washington, D.C.
Anja Mittag scored the only goal, breaking the deadlock in the 44th minute. The Wolfsburg striker found a gap in the English back line and fired a shot inside the right post, past a diving Siobhan Chamberlain.
England shared a replay of the goal:
Jill Scott had an opportunity to deliver an equalizer for the Three Lionesses in second-half stoppage time. She received a pass from Ellen White in the German 18-yard box, but her shot sailed wide of the mark.
According to ESPN FC, the Germans controlled 58 percent of possession but only managed to get two shots on target. England was similarly wasteful, with the two teams combining to miss the target on 23 attempts.
England coach Mark Sampson will be disappointed with the result after his team toppled the United States Saturday night. It was the first time the U.S. women's national team lost at home since Dec. 15, 2015, per espnW's Graham Hays.
With the win, Germany are guaranteed to finish at least second at the SheBelieves Cup. They'll need France to lose to the United States in order to claim the top spot in the table.
Following Tuesday's match, Germany and England will both refocus their efforts on UEFA Women's Euro 2017. The Germans have won the previous six editions, while England will want to get out of the group stage at the very least—a feat they have achieved just once in the last four tournaments.
