WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Lena Petermann scored twice in three minutes and top-ranked Germany trounced Thailand 4-0 Monday to advance to the round of 16 in the Women’s World Cup.

Melanie Leupolz put Germany ahead 1-0 in the 24th minute by heading in a corner kick.

The 29th-ranked Thai hung within a goal behind a brilliant performance from keeper Waraporn Boonsing. But the Germans finally made it 2-0 on Petermann’s header in the 56th minute - a feat she repeated two minutes later.

Sara Daebritz later closed the scoring by tapping the ball into an open net.

Germany finished atop its group with a goal differential of plus-14.
