EURO2022 quarter-finals: France 1-0 Netherlands

Eve Perisset scored a penalty in the 102nd minute, following Dominique Janssen's foul on Kadidiatou Diani, meaning France is through to the final four of a major international tournament for the first time since the World Cup in 2011.

Netherlands Women improved in the second half but couldn't get star striker Vivianne Miedama into the game enough. An exciting, end-to-end game went to extra time only thanks to profligate French finishing and the brilliance of Netherlands goalkeeper Daphne van Domselaar defending 10 shots on target for the net.

France's victory in front of 9,764 people will secure a place in the semi-final where they battle Germany for chance in the finals at Wembley.
