A stunning drive from Ingvild Isaksen earned Norway a historic victory over Germany as they ended the holders' incredible unbeaten run in UEFA European Women's Championship matches, stretching back 59 games and more than 17 years. It also left Norway as winners of Group B and means they will stay in Kalmar for their quarter-final against the Group C runners-up.

Germany, who had never lost to the Scandinavians in EURO final matches, will now face Italy in Vaxjo on Sunday. With Norway making six changes a German success seemed even more likely at the start but after Isaksen had struck her first-ever international goal at the end of the first half, the seven-time champions struggled to regain their earlier fluency as Norway defended for their lives.
