Denmark will face Norway in the semi-finals on Thursday after edging France on penalties at the end of a tight contest in Linkoping.

Few were backing the Danes to prevail, but history repeated itself in agonising fashion for Les Bleues after Louisa Necib's penalty had cancelled out Johanna Rasmussen's opener in normal time. France lost a quarter-final on spot kicks to the Netherlands at Finland 2009, and after Necib had her attempt saved by the excellent Stina Petersen, they were heading for similar heartbreak. Sarah Bouhaddi kept out Theresa Nielsen, but Sabrina Delannoy hit the woodwork and Janni Arnth did the rest.
