Road to the final: Denmark

05.08.2017

Six time is the charm for the Danish team. After five lost semi-finals they managed to qualify for the final of the UEFA Women’s EURO 2017. They only got defeated once, during the group stage they lost their only match… against their current opponent: The Netherlands.

During the group stage Denmark won two games 1-0: against Belgium and against Denmark. They also played the Netherlands, 17 days ago. Now facing them again in the final. Their previous match ended in a 1-0 victory for the Dutch team, a penalty scored by Sherida Spitse. 

Denmark ended second in group A, meaning they’d face the winner of group B in the quarterfinal: Germany. They surprised everybody by knocking the current holders out of the tournament, beating them 2-1 in Rotterdam.

In Breda they couldn’t get past Austria in the regular time. After extra time the score remained 0-0. This lead to a penalty shoot-out, which Denmark won 3-0.

On August 6th the final will kick-off at 17:00 in FC Twente stadium in Enschede. The match has been sold out for over a week now.
