Powell's side have drawn both their group games
England coach Hope Powell believes favourites Germany underestimated her side during their 0-0 draw at the Women's World Cup on Friday.

"We knew Germany would be strong and very physical," Powell told BBC Sport.

"There was a game plan and we stuck to it. Although we came here to win, we're happy with the point.

"Some Germany players had said things about us before the match and were perhaps surprised by our performance. They won't be surprised from now on."

Meanwhile, captain Faye White said she was ecstatic following her side's draw.

"We should have taken all three points because we had created enough chances to win.

"Tonight, I think Germany underestimated our girls. We proved the doubters wrong.

"We will go on to the next game against Argentina knowing that we need a 2-0 win in order to qualify from the group."
