The Netherlands Women won their first-ever major title after an entertaining 4-2 win against Denmark in front of a sold-out 28,182 crowd in Enschede.

Denmark opened the scoring after just six minutes, with Nadia Nadim converting a penalty after Sanne Troelsgaard was fouled in the box.

However, the hosts drew level soon after, with  Vivianne Miedema firing home after great work from Liverpool winger Shanice van de Sanden.

The Dutch would take league on 27 minutes, via a fine finish from Lieke Martens.

However, the Danes would get back on level terms before the break, with Pernille Herder firing home after a quickfire break.

The Dutch were the superior side throughout and once again took the lead, with captain firing home a free-kick after the break.

The hosts then sealed the deal late on, with Miedma getting her second of the game via a superb finish.

The Dutch were deserved winners in a tournament which saw favourites Germany, France, and indeed England, all fall by the wayside.
