Germany's teenage midfielder Giulia Gwinn scored a second-half winner as the two-time world champions edged past China 1-0 on Saturday to kick off their World Cup campaign.

The 19-year-old fired in from the edge of the box in the 66th minute to break stiff Chinese resistance in the Group B encounter.

China had almost stunned the favorites against the run of play in the first half when Yang Li was sent through after a German error but her shot was cleared when she looked certain to score.

Steve Smith and David Warner are critical to Cricket World Cup hopes, data shows He's unorthodox, even a tad fidgety at the crease, but the stats don't lie — Steve Smith is the jewel in Australia's crown. In fact, he and David Warner enter this year's World Cup among the best-ranked batters across all participating nations.

Carolin Simon hit the woodwork with a cross minutes later but Germany's early dominance faded as the Chinese gained in confidence.

China earned another golden chance from a quick break, hitting the post in the 44th minute before Germany keeper Almuth Schult came to the rescue.

Gwinn then found just enough space in a crowded Chinese defense to fire home a cleanly-struck shot past keeper Peng Shimeng to settle the game.

Germany are now unbeaten in their last 13 matches, the longest run of any team taking part in the tournament in France. They next take on Spain on Wednesday, while China play South Africa on Thursday.
