The match is scheduled to take place at the 32,900-seater La Mosson Stadium on Monday night 6pm.
Germany is leading group B after collecting six points from two 1-0 victories over China and Spain respectively.With a game remaining in the group stages, Banyana are languishing at the bottom of the group without a point.
Spain and China are second and third with three points each.

It is Swart’s second World Cup after playing at the Under-17 World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago.Swart has embraced the competition between her and Dlamini.
She said: “I have worked extremely hard it is just about staying ready. Our position (goalkeeping) is very competitive and I do not think the coach could ask for a better goalkeeper department Andile (Dlamini).
"We push each other and work extremely hard. I think the coaches are proud of what they produced. It is tough to come for the second game, but I had a great game, Andile as well in the opening match.
“We have already showed what we capable of doing we did not just give it away cheaply. We have made history and we will continue making history.
“We are going to keep our heads up we going to the next one with a lot of pride to play for.”
