Match background Only this chapter

• Both teams won 1-0 on Tuesday, France defeating Iceland after Austria saw off fellow debutants Switzerland.

• This is Austria's first final tournament and they have never played France in a UEFA Women's EURO match before.

• The teams have met four times in FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying with France winning every game.

• In 2015 World Cup qualifying, France won 3-1 home and away, both times going three up before an Austrian consolation goal.

• In Austria on 31 October 2013, Louisa Necib, Amandine Henry and Wendie Renard scored before Carina Wenninger pulled one back.

• The following April in Le Mans, Élise Bussaglia, Marie-Laure Delie and Élodie Thomis struck in the first half with Sarah Puntigam on target for Austria.

• They also faced off in 2007 World Cup qualifying, the last time France failed to make it to a major tournament. It was 3-1 again in Austria, the visitors coming from behind, while France prevailed 2-1 at home.

• The sides' first encounter was the only friendly in which they have ever been matched, France beating Austria 4-1 in Bonneuil-sur-Marne in March 1999.

Team facts Only this chapter

France

EURO 2013: Quarter-finals

EURO best: Quarter-finals (2009, 2013)

How they qualified: Group 3 winners, W8 D0 L0 F27 A0 Pts24

Coach: Olivier Echouafni

One to watch: Wendie Renard (defender, Lyon)

What to watch out for: In terms of raw talent, France perhaps ought to have been the dominant nation in Europe in recent years, rather than having suffered a series of quarter-final near-misses, at global level as well as in the past two EUROs. The UEFA Women's Champions League supremacy of Lyon, with a very similar squad to Les Bleues, is proof of that.

But it has not happened and three years after replacing Bruno Bini as coach, Philippe Bergeroo has himself made way for Olivier Echouafni. Can he help France turn their habitual superiority in big matches into goals? That is the key for the team who, on paper, should be Germany's strongest challengers.

Austria

EURO 2013: Play-offs

EURO best: First qualification

How they qualified: Group 8 runners-up, W5 D2 L1 F18 A4 Pts17

Coach: Dominik Thalhammer

One to watch: Nina Burger (forward, Sand)

What to watch out for: Austria will be making their major tournament debut in the Netherlands, but the fact they were seeded second in their group (a ranking they justified handsomely) shows that this has been coming for a while. They reached the 2013 play-offs, having been pipped to automatic qualification on goal difference, and were second behind France in their 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying group.

Indeed, from their April 2014 World Cup qualifying loss to France to a 1-0 home defeat by Norway some two years and a day later, Austria went 18 games unbeaten – holding the likes of Spain and Italy and seeing off teams such as Australia during one nine-match winning run.
