The pre-match pitch watering produced a magnificent rainbow in the sun at the Kalmar Arena, the pot of gold at full-time belonged to two-time former champions Norway.

The match winner against the Netherlands in the group stage, indefatigable midfielder Solveig Gulbrandsen gave her side a 24th-minute lead which Irene Paredes' unfortunate own-goal doubled just before the break. When Ada Hegerberg scored a magnificent third just after the hour mark, Norway could already cast their minds ahead to Wednesday's game in Norrkoping, their fourth last-four date in as many continental finals, with Jennifer Hermoso's added-time strike barely a distraction.
