Match background Only this chapter

• Both these sides picked up three points on Sunday with 1-0 wins, the Netherlands beating Norway and Denmark seeing off Belgium.

• These teams last met competitively in the UEFA Women's EURO 2009 group stage, where the Netherlands won 2-1 to pip their opponents to the quarter-finals.

• Overall in seven competitive encounters, Denmark have won four and the Netherlands two, all in UEFA Women's EUROs at various stages.

• Indeed, the sides faced off in qualifying for this championship's inaugural 1984 edition, Denmark losing 2-1 in the Netherlands but then triumphing 2-0 in their last match to beat the Dutch to first place. Belgium were in the same group.

• Including friendlies, the northern European duo have played each other 20 times, with Denmark winning 11 and the Netherlands five, with four draws.

• The goal count is 32-12 to Denmark.

• Their most recent duels were two friendlies in January 2016 in Belek, Turkey. The Netherlands won 2-0 and 2-1.

• In the first of those games Lieke Martens and substitute Shanice van de Sanden were on target in the last 20 minutes.

• Three days later Danielle van de Donk struck in added time just as it seemed Sanne Troelsgaard's 88th-minute effort had earned Denmark a draw following Vivianne Miedema's opener.

• Netherlands midfielder Jackie Groenen is an FFC Frankfurt club-mate of Denmark's Cecilie Sandvej.

• Martens and Denmark's Sofie Junge Pedersen, Troelsgaard and Simone Boye Sørensen play for Rosengård.

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.

2017-07-19T11:35:16:772

Denmark

EURO 2013: Semi-finals

EURO best: Semi-finals (1984, 1991, 1993, 2001, 2013)

How they qualified: Group 4 runners-up, W6 D1 L1 F22 A1 Pts19

Coach: Nils Nielsen

One to watch: Pernille Harder (forward, Wolfsburg)

What to watch out for: Their run to the 2013 semi-finals – beating France on penalties before falling to Norway by the same method – ended a long period of disappointments at big tournaments for Denmark (even if they did not win any of their five games in 90 minutes and needed the drawing of lots to pip Russia to the last eight as a best third-placed team). They also began 2017 qualifying slowly but were to come good, culminating in an impressive scalp of Sweden.

Having beaten Portugal 6-0, Russia 6-1 and Finland 5-0 this year, a team with the attacking resources of Pernille Harder, Nadia Nadim and Katrine Veje cannot be underestimated, with their hero goalkeeper of 2013 Stina Petersen still going strong.
