  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Paul Saffer, Reporter, Helsinki Football Stadium: So it will be Germany v England for the title at Helsinki's Olympic Stadium on Thursday after a comeback from a side seeking a fifth straight title. A grim looking Berntsen bows out as Norway coach having lost to Germany not only here but also in the 2005 final and 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup semi-finals.
  • Goal
    90+3'

  • 71'

  • Substitution
    62'
    Pedersen (in) - Kaurin (out) (Norway)

  • Goal
    61'
    da Mbabi (Germany) scores!
    Paul Saffer, Reporter, Helsinki Football Stadium: The other substitute in fact scores. Another curled cross from the right, this time by Laudehr, and Da Mbabi's header creeps inside the near post to Hjelmseth's horror.
  • 60'
    Bajramaj (Germany) has an effort on goal.
    Paul Saffer, Reporter, Helsinki Football Stadium: Bajramaj replaces the creator of the goal and within 30 seconds curls a shot straight over - it was her that struck twice as a substitute late on in the 4-0 opener.

  • Substitution
    46'

  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    Paul Saffer, Reporter, Helsinki Football Stadium: Germany have not lost a finals game in this competition since 1993 or any EURO match including qualifying for ten years. Those runs are in real peril and Norway have looked pretty comfortable for their lead. However, Germany still have the heroes of a fortnight ago, Bajramaj and Mittag, on the bench, but losing Bresonik is a second blow on top of Hingst's absence.
  • Substitution
    45+1'
    Laudehr (in) - Bresonik (out) (Germany)
    Paul Saffer, Reporter, Helsinki Football Stadium: Bresonik injured her left ankle in a challenge with Stensland and there is a straight switch in midfield with Simone Laudehr, perhaps a slightly more attacking option.
  • 43'
    Grings (Germany) has an effort on goal.
    Paul Saffer, Reporter, Helsinki Football Stadium: Current finals top scorer Inka Grings gets around Maren Mjelde in the box and gets to the byline and cuts back but Ingrid Hjelmseth blocks her shot.

  • 37'

  • 36'
    Behringer (Germany) delivers the corner.

    Stensland (Norway) delivers the corner.
