Nadine Angerer saved a penalty in either half to help Germany claim their sixth consecutive European title, Anja Mittag's goal proving the difference against Norway in Solna.
Silvia Neid's team came to Sweden seen by many as ripe to be deposed, particularly after they lost to Norway in the group stage. There was to be no repeat for Even Pellerud's valiant challengers, however, as Angerer kept out spot kicks from Trine Rønning and Solveig Gulbrandsen either side of substitute Mittag's 49th-minute strike. Norway nonetheless played a full part in an entertaining showpiece, and surely none of Germany's eight European crowns can have been so hard-earned.
