Goalkeeper Marheineke was part of the national side who breezed through the group stage in San Juan de la Lagos without conceding a goal. They triumphed 5-0 against Uruguay in their curtain-raiser before claiming 3-0 victories against Ireland and the host nation. Their fine run continued in the last 16 as Argentina were brushed aside 2-0, but England then saw their hopes of glory ended in a quarter-final clash with another South American national. They were thumped 5-1 by Brazil which left them in the play-off group to determine the fifth to eighth-placed finishers. They saw off Poland 2-0 before going down 3-1 to Russia and having to settle for sixth spot overall.
