Germany were resounding 8-0 winners in their home game against Turkey on Friday evening.
The Germans have now scored 28 goals and conceded just one. "Today was good in many, many areas," said manager Martina Voss-Tecklenburg.
Turkey’s Kezban Tag scored in her own net to open the scoring, and there were goals for Lea Schuller - a hat-trick - and one each for Jule Brand, Laura Freigang, Sjoeke Nusken and Klara Buhl.

The win leaves Germany top of Group H after five games played, with a perfect record so far. Turkey are in third.
Slovenia also enjoyed a drubbing, as they dispatched Estonia 6-0. That win left them in second place in Group I, with Estonia bottom without a point. Wales would later demolish Greece 5-0 to go joint second with Slovenia. France then proceeded to crush Kazakhstan 6-0 to keep the pressure on at the top of the group.
Croatia were held 0-0 at home by Lithuania. That was the first point for both sides, who are only above pointless Moldova - though they have played just one Group G game. Italy were surprise 2-1 losers when they welcomed Switzerland in their evening match, with the Swiss going top of their hosts by three points. Romania secured a 3-0 win over Moldova to stay third.
Cyprus hosted Belarus and honours were even with the scores 1-1. The draw gives Belarus their fourth point, while Cyprus’ sole point leaves them still bottom.
In the later games of the day, Malta went 2-0 down at home to Montenegro.
In Group B, Scotland drew 1-1 at home with Ukraine. That left Scotland and Ukraine in second and third respectively, as they started the day.
