Germany Women Thrash Ivory Coast Women 10 - 0

Germany began their bid to regain the Women's World Cup by putting 10 past Ivory Coast in Ottawa.

Celia Sasic scored a hat-trick and Anja Mittag netted twice as Germany were 5-0 up inside 35 minutes.

Mittag completed her treble after the break, with Simone Laudehr, Sara Dabritz, Melanie Behringer and Alexandra Popp all finding the net.

"We had judged them to be better than they were today," said Germany coach Silvia Neid.

Germany fell short of matching the record they set with an 11-0 win over Argentina in 2007.

They went on to defend the trophy they won four years earlier, but failed to reach the semi-finals on home soil in 2011.
