Finland thumped Germany 17-0 to give themselves a strong chance of going straight through to the quarter-finals at the International Floorball Federation Women's World Championships in Neuchâtel.

Sofia Leino and Veera Kauppi each scored four of Finland's goals at the Swiss town's Halle de sport de la Riveraine, while Oona Kauppi bagged three, Johanna Homi registered two and there was one apiece for Mia Vallenius, Laura Manninen and Ella Sundstrom as well as an own goal.
