Match background Only this chapter

  • Since the group stage was introduced in 1997, every host had won their opening game until Denmark held Sweden 1-1 in Gothenburg in 2013.
  • Norway beat the Netherlands 1-0 in the 2013 group stage and were to top their group while the Dutch ended fourth.
  • In 14 competitive meetings, Norway have won 11 and the Netherlands just one, a 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifier (both made the finals).
  • Overall including friendlies, Norway have won 12 and the Netherlands four of their 21 encounters, with the goal count 38-13.
  • Norway overcame the Netherlands 4-1 in Rotterdam in the Olympic qualifiers in March 2016. Dutch scorer Manon Melis has since retired from international football.
  • Norway's Nora Holstad Berge is a Bayern München team-mate of Netherlands striker Vivianne Miedema and defender Stefanie van der Gragt.
  • The only time Norway have not got past the group stage was as hosts in 1997.
  • Both teams have changed their coach in recent months, Norway turning to Martin Sjögren and the Netherlands promoting Sarina Wiegman.
  • Current UEFA Best Women's Player in Europe Ada Hegerberg was the joint-top scorer in qualifying with ten goals.
  • When the Netherlands made their finals debut in 2013, they and Norway were the two sides beaten in the last four.
  • Netherlands duo Lineth Beerensteyn and Jill Roord and Norway's Nora Berge are all at Bayern München.

Team facts Only this chapter

Netherlands (hosts)

EURO 2013: Group stage

EURO best: Semi-finals (2009)

How they qualified: Automatically as hosts

Coach: Sarina Wiegman

One to watch: Vivianne Miedema (forward, Bayern München)

What to watch out for: Having made their breakthrough as the steely defensive side that reached the EURO semi-finals on debut under Vera Pauw, the Netherlands have become a team more in the classic Dutch mould under first Roger Reijners and, until his departure in December, Arjan van der Laan. With the former still in charge, they earned a FIFA Women's World Cup bow in 2015, narrowly losing to eventual runners-up Japan in the last 16.

With no qualification duties this time, they have kept themselves busy, playign 13 games in 2017. The recent retirement of forward Manon Melis has put the spotlight even more firmly on Miedema, whose goals – with the youngster fresh from winning the 2014 WU19 EURO – propelled the Netherlands to the World Cup.

2017-07-15T02:01:03:269

Norway

EURO 2013: Runners-up

EURO best: Winners (1987, 1993)

How they qualified: Group 8 winners, W7 D1 L0 F29 A2 Pts22

Coach: Martin Sjögren

One to watch: Ada Hegerberg (forward, Lyon)

What to watch out for: In men's football they talk of Germany as a 'tournament team' but in the female game Norway have a claim to that title. They have exceeded expectations at the last three EUROs, getting to two finals and the 2009 last four, despite not possessing a squad to match their 1995 world champions or 2000 Olympic gold medallists.

Just like four years ago, they have qualified only to then change coach – this time Roger Finjord has departed, the assistant to Even Pellerud up until summer 2015 citing the commute to Oslo from his home in northern Norway as the cause. Results had also been mixed but Finjord's successor Sjögren, fresh from winning the Swedish title with Linköping, will inherit an exciting forward line of UEFA Best Women's Player in Europe 2015/16 Hegerberg, fit-again Caroline Graham Hansen and a re-inspired Isabell Herlovsen.
