Women Euro: Netherlands Seal Semi-Final Spot

Two goals from Lieke Martens and Vivianne Miedema handed hosts the Netherlands a 2-0 win over Sweden and a spot in the women's Euro semi-finals on Saturday. Euro semi-finalists from 2009, the Netherlands will face either England or France in Enschede on August 3.
Martens opened the scoring on 33 minutes with a low free-kick after Miedema had tripped over Jessica Samuelsson just outside the box. Miedema added a second in the 64th minute after Shanice van de Sanden had found her in front of goal with a cross following a superb run down the right flank.
The Dutch pushed for a goal from the start, reducing Sweden to counter-attacking as they sought to extend their perfect record from the tournament so far and skipper Sherida Spitse fired over from a free-kick on 14 minutes.
On the other side, Sweden sweeper Nilla Fischer headed just over the bar from a corner on 25 minutes. Sweden created two good chances just after half-time but Fridolina Rolfo slammed a left-foot shot past the post and Stina Blackstenius blasted over.
