Netherlands Defeat Denmark to Win Women’s Championship


The Netherlands became women’s European champions for the first time with a thrilling 4-2 victory over Denmark on home soil.

Having swept aside Euro 2017 favourites England 3-0 in the semifinals, the Netherlands fought back from an early setback to send the sell-out Enschede crowd wild.

Vivianne Miedema (2), Lieke Martens and Sherida Spitse scored for the hosts, with Nadia Madim and Pernille Harder on target for Denmark in a first half which ended 2-2.

The Danes were ahead after six minutes when Harder cut down the left and Kika van Es brought down Sanne Troelsgaard in the box.

Nadim converted from the spot but the Netherlands were level within four minutes as Shanice van de Sanden surged past Cecilie Sandvej on the right and squared.
