- 

FULL-TIME. The last touch of the game is Sari van Veenendaal gathering the ball, which is fitting.

- 

Lots of applause for her as she goes off on the stretcher from both sets of fans.

- 

Seems to have been a nasty fall for her, and they're taking plenty of care and time taking her away.

- 

Asllani is now prone on the pitch and a stretcher has been brought on for her.

120'+1 

What a terrible miss from van de Sanden. In plenty of space in the box, and sends the ball tamely past the far post.

- 

TWO MORE MINUTES OF THIS.

120' 

van de Sanden tries to time-waste by taking it to the corner, and then gives the ball away - van de Donk helps her out.

119' 

van Veenendaal punches away the corner, and the ball from Asllani veers out at the far post.

118' 

Van Lunteren has hurt herself tracking back at pace and putting in a sliding challenge on Jakobssen. She'll think it's worth it, though.

109'  

Seger takes away Roord's ankles, but the referee has blown for an earlier foul the other way round.

- 

HALF-TIME OF EXTRA-TIME. The Netherlands have one foot in the final.

105' 

Lindahl comes racing off her line and puts a boot into Eriksson's thigh for good measure. The referee gives a foul against the challenging Miedema.

104' 

Corner to Sweden, and van Veenendaal collects with ease.

GOAL! And it's Jackie Groenen, soon to be of Manchester United, who rolls her shot along the ground and in to the bottom left corner.

98' 

Asllani has really been very physical in the challenge tonight. van de Donk takes the brunt of the latest.

95' 

None of the Netherlands players are moving quickly enough to pick up the ball from van de Sanden, who eventually just whacks a ball to the far post and it goes into touch.

- 
91' 

Here we go again then.

- 
90'+5 

FULL TIME. We are going another 30 minutes. Buck up.

90'+2 

SAVE! Once again LIndahl on the stretch with her left hand as van de Sanden whips in a cross from the right!

90' 

Five minutes to be added on.

88' 

Eriksson curls it in, and it lands just on top of Sari van Veenendaal's net.

87' 

van de Donk upends Asllani, and that's a free kick to Sweden just outside the box. Aim it towards Fischer?

Spitse gets a yellow card, probably for the accumulation of fouls.

85' 

At the other end, van de Donk can't decide whether to shoot or to square it, and it's too late by the time she's made up her mind.

84' 

The ball drops to Asllani, who fires high and wide and van de Sanden catches her late as well.

83' 

Sweden are aiming all their set pieces towards the head of Fischer.

80' 

Extra time is beckoning its cruel fingers at us, people.

78' 

Hurtig and Rubensson are both off, Janogy and Zigotti replace them.

77' 

Odd back-heeled effort from Jill Roord, and that's wide.

76' 

van de Sanden on the break, wins a corner off Rubensson, and then urges the Netherlands fans to make some more noise.

WHAT A HEADER! Great touch from an unmarked Miedema, and Lindahl palms it on to the crossbar!

-

- 

CLOSE! The goalkeeper punches it and it falls to Fischer on the edge of the box, who shoots, and van Veenendaal dives to tip the ball on to the post.

55' 

Bloodworth shoves Blackstenius, conceding a corner, and the Sweden back line move up to the box.

51' 

Spitse fouls Asllani back, and the Swede complains that's the third time it's happened. I think the referee is basically just letting the pair of them get on with it.

50' 

Another hefty challenge from Asllani, this one on Spitse.

48' 

GREAT CHALLENGE! It's Bloodworth putting herself on the line once more to stop Blackstenius getting a shot away in the box.

45'+3 

HALF-TIME. Well, this is all a bit cagey.

- 

Three minutes to be added on here.

45' 

Miedema goes on a run down the right, and after Beerensteyn fails to make use of her pass, she takes the ball back and has a shot herself, but Sweden are defending brilliantly in numbers.

- 

The Netherlands are lofting long balls forward for Miedema to chase, which seems tactically flawed.

44' 

Fischer goes in studs up on Martens. Ouch.

- 

Have to say, though both sides have pressed, there's been little in the way of clear-cut chances.

37' 

GREAT SAVE! van Veenendaal uses her feet brilliantly to save from Rubensson through a forest of legs in the box.

36' 

van Veenendaal punches at a cross, and van Lunteren thinks someone is on her shoulder and isn't - she hacks it out for a corner.

35' 

A lot of passes going straight into touch at the moment.

- 

Beerensteyn is OK to carry on for the moment.

- 

van de Sanden is warming up just in case.

31' 

Rubensson goes in to a challenge with Beerensteyn, and they've both come out of it with a knock.

27'

Martens was offside in the build-up to an opportunity for Miedema, created by van de Donk.

26' 

And Nilla Fischer does the same at the other end to prevent Miedema from being in on goal.

25' 

Bloodworth is right in to make the block to prevent Blackstenius from sneaking straight through on goal.

- 
23' 

Jakobssen again on the run down the right, and Blackstenius can't connect properly with the cross.

20' 

Free kick to the Netherlands, possibly due to a foul on the goalkeeper.

19' 

Eriksson swings it in to the far post and van Veenendaal reaches for it, and it's out for a corner.

18' 

Asllani has her ankles clipped by Spitse, and it's a free kick to Sweden on the right, not far from the corner flag.

17' 

Effort from distance from Beerensteyn but that's straight at Lindahl.

15' 

The goalkeeper is fine and plays on after a bit of treatment.

13' 

Sari van Veenendaal is down and needing treatment after coming out bravely at the feet of Jakobssen.

12' 

Free kick to Netherlands after Asllani squashes Spitse.

10' 

That's Seger there dropping back and closing down Miedema - great defensive work.

8' 

Hurtig absolutely skins van Lunteren and van Veenendaal spills the low ball in, but it's a goal kick and not a corner.

6' 

Asllani shoves over van de Donk, and it's a free kick to the Netherlands in their own half.

5' 

Jakobssen runs herself down a blind alley and Netherlands push up.

3' 

Handball from Seger, giving away a free kick outside the box, and it's taken very quickly, allowing Miedema to lash a shot, but that's wide.

2' 

Sweden on the attack in these first exchanges, but Sari van Veenendaal is ready.

1' 

Kick-off.

19:55

OK, Sweden have just made a change to their starting eleven, Rubensson starts after all.

- 
- 
- 

Lina Hurtig is in for Sweden, replacing the suspended Fridolina Rolfo; but Nathalie Bjorn also starts, ahead of Elin Rubensson. For the Netherlands, there's no Shanice van de Sanden - super sub Lineth Beerensteyn is in instead.
