Dutch women claim maiden European soccer title

THE HAGUE - The Netherlands captured their first European title by beating Denmark 4-2 in the final of Women's Euro 2017 in Enschede on Sunday.

In front of around 30,000 spectators the first half of the final was spectacular. Denmark were awarded an early penalty after Sanne Troelsgaard was brought down by Kika van Es. Nadia Nadim converted the penalty to open the scoring.

The Netherlands bounced back quickly when striker Vivianne Miedema netted on a cross from the right by Shanice van de Sanden. The equalizer was followed by another goal for the hosts. Danish goalkeeper Stina Lykke was not able to stop a shot by Lieke Martens.

Despite the massive support of the orange dressed home crowd the Dutch team, coached by Sarina Wiegman, let Denmark come back into the match. Pernille Harder finished a run from the Danish half for the 2-2 at half-time.

Six minutes into the second half Sharida Spitse delighted the home crowd by scoring from a free-kick. Lykke had no answer to the low placed shot in the corner of the goal.

Miedema could have extended the scoring and maybe secure the title, but the Danish goalkeeper prevented the fourth goal with a superb reflex. In 88th minute Miedema did produce her second goal and earned the Dutch women the 4-2 win and the title.

The success of the Dutch national team comes as a surprise. The Dutch women had played a modest role in European women's soccer so far in history, with a semifinal place at Euro 2009 as highlight so far. However, as hosts of the tournament the Dutch women were able to write history and reach the first ever final.
