Reigning champions Germany showed signs of opening-night nerves as they were held to a surprise goalless draw by a determined Netherlands side who could even have snatched a stunning Group B win.

Dutch coach Roger Reijners had promised that the 2009 semi-finalists would take the game to the holders, and although they did not entirely throw caution to the wind, they allowed it to sail away on the breeze sufficiently to enjoy the better of the goalscoring opportunities. The stalemate ended a run of 19 straight wins for Germany at UEFA Women's EURO finals and, but for veteran goalkeeper and captain Nadine Angerer, the Netherlands could even have ended their sequence of 57 matches unbeaten in the tournament, qualifying included.
