Minute By Minute

  • The penalties are over.
    Norway will meet Germany in Sunday's final after Ingrid Hjelmseth saved two Danish penalties to earn a shoot-out victory. They rode their luck however as Denmark dominated for long spells but could not find the net and the Danish luck eventually ran out.
  • Penalty
    Rønning (Norway) scores from the penalty spot.
    Norway's penalties have been outstanding and this one nestles in the corner like all the rest. Norway win!

    Slots into the corner right-footed.

    Mjelde (Norway) scores from the penalty spot.
    Again the keeper chooses wrong and Norway are nearly there.

    Nadim (Denmark) scores from the penalty spot.

  • Penalty
    Dekkerhus (Norway) scores from the penalty spot.
    Excellent penalty as she strides up and lifts the ball into the side-netting. No chance for Stina Petersen.

    Nielsen (Denmark) misses from the penalty spot.
    The defender opts for power but it is too central and Ingrid Hjelmseth gets both hands to it, turning it over the bar.

    Gulbrandsen (Norway) scores from the penalty spot.
    The midfielder sends the keeper the wrong way. Norway go ahead.

  • The penalty shoot-out is set to begin.
  • The referee ends the second period of extra time.
    Penalties it is. Denmark have been here before, just a few days ago when they came out on top from the spot against France. Will that put them at a psychological advantage? All eyes on Ingrid Hjelmseth and Stina Petersen.

  • 82
    Stensland (Norway) misses the target.
    Line Røddik's clearance to the edge of the area is picked up by the Norwegian captain who shapes to power it but instead attempts to place the ball into the corner with a delicate curling side-foot. It drifts a fraction wide.

    80
    Haavi (in) - Ada Hegerberg (out) (Norway)
  • 77

  • Substitution
    68
    Rasmussen (in) - Rydahl (out) (Denmark)
  • Substitution

  • 60

  • Substitution
    58
    Thorsnes (in) - Hansen (out) (Norway)
  • 57
    Ada Hegerberg (Norway) misses the target.
  • 56

  • 56
    Hansen (Norway) has an effort on goal.
  • 53
    Knudsen (Denmark) misses the target.

  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    Denmark get things under way again. They have 45 minutes to keep their dream alive. They have shown an admirable survival instinct throughout the tournament, can they stay alive here?
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    An excellent first half of football which Norway end ahead courtesy of Marit Christensen' early goal. Denmark have responded excellently however, and though they have really yet to test Ingrid Hjelmseth their build-up play has really stretched the Norwegians who have appeared rattled at times.
  • 44
    Knudsen (Denmark) takes the free-kick.
  • 43
    Gulbrandsen (Norway) is penalised for a foul on Veje (Denmark).
  • 43

    Knudsen (Denmark) is penalised for a foul on Christensen (Norway).
  • 40

  • 30
    Veje (Denmark) is penalised for a foul on Hansen (Norway).
  • 29
    Knudsen (Denmark) misses the target.
  • 27
    Knudsen (Denmark) has a shot blocked.
    Denmark are not without threat here and their intricate passing creates space for the No6 in the area, but Norwegian defenders get back to cover just as she pulls the trigger.
  • 26
    Minde (Norway) misses the target.
    Another corner inevitably leads to another Norwegian effort on goal. This time Denmark do their best to clear but can only get it to Hegland on the edge of the area whose dinked effort drifts just wide.
  • 25
    Stensland (Norway) delivers the corner.
  • 24
    Harder (Denmark) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Rønning (Norway).
  • 22
    Rydahl (Denmark) misses the target.
    The cross from the left causes issues for the Norwegian defence this time and they allow the ball to drop to the No8 in a dangerous area but she blasts wide from close range.
  • 21
    Ørntoft (Denmark) misses the target.
    Julie Rydahl's free-kick into the area is only half cleared to the edge of the area where the defender meets it with a powerful strike but the effort lacks accuracy.

  • 19
    Stensland (Norway) delivers the corner.
    Another corner. Denmark have to be careful, but the No4 puts it right under the crossbar which Stina Petersen just gets a fist on under the most intense of pressure. The Danes survive this time.
  • 10
    Brogaard (Denmark) delivers the corner.
  • 8
    Hjelmseth (Norway) makes a save.
    Denmark respond with steady build up which allows Pernille Harder to drift into space 25 metres from goal and strike but it is too close to the Norwegian No1 to worry her.
  • 8
    Harder (Denmark) has an effort on goal.
  • 5
    Petersen (Denmark) makes a save.
    Ingvild Stensland's corners are causing all kinds of problems. From the right this time the ball is met by Marit Christensen before falling to Solveig Gulbrandsen who heads toward goal but cannot generate the power to beat the Danish keeper.
  • 5
    Gulbrandsen (Norway) has an effort on goal.
  • 5
    Stensland (Norway) delivers the corner.
  • Goal
    3

    The first corner of the game brings the first goal. Ingvild Stensland whips a dangerous ball in from the left which is missed by numerous defenders and hits the defender in the chest, fortunately bouncing into the net.
  • 3
    Stensland (Norway) delivers the corner.
  • Start Time
    The match is under way.
    Norway kick things off as they bid to meet Germany for the second time in this tournament. They will be fancied by many but Denmark have already disposed of a strong French side and will fancy their chances.
