The two goals were scored by Germans scored a goal each in the second and fourth quarters through Moritz Furste and Christopher Ruhr in the 30th and 58th minute.

With this win, Germany will take on world champions Australia in the semi-finals on Saturday, while England will face Argentina for the fifth and eighth place.
