Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Wayne Harrison, Reporter, Olympic Stadium: Germany are European champions for the seventh time and the fifth in succession thanks to a rampant second-half display. England battled at all times but their vulnerability in defence was ruthlessly exploited by Inka Grings and Birgit Prinz. Grings's two goals ensures she takes the adidas Golden Boot award for top scorer in the tournament with a record six.
