Sweden and Netherlands advance to quarter-finals of Euro 2022 with big wins

Sweden and the Netherlands advanced to the quarter-finals of Euro 2022 with stunning victories over Portugal and Switzerland, respectively, in their final Group C games.

All four sides were chasing for a spot in the last eight but Sweden, who are second in the world rankings, emerged victorious after a 5-0 win while the Netherlands triumphed 4-1 to finish second.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look at the final round of play in the tournament.

Sweden seals top spot

Manchester City’s Filippa Angeldahl scored twice as Sweden progressed to the last eight where they will meet Iceland, Belgium or Italy on Friday.

Arsenal striker Stina Blackstenius was also on the scoresheet at Leigh Sports Village as Peter Gerhardsson’s side finished ahead of the Netherlands on goal difference.

Angeldahl’s brace and Carole Costa’s own goal gave the Swedes a 3-0 lead at half-time before Kosovare Asllani’s penalty and late Blackstenius crack gave Sweden a comfortable win.

They will now have to wait until Monday night to spot their opponent in the knockout stages, dodging Group D winners France but the other three teams are all still eligible to qualify.

The Netherlands meet France in the quarter-finals after clinching a 4-1 win at Bramall Lane with three late goals from substitutes Romee Leuchter and Victoria Pelova.

It was 1-1 with six minutes to go before Leuchter scored twice, either side of Pelova’s attempt, in a destructive final 10 minutes ahead of Mark Parsons’ side.

The Netherlands had taken the lead early in the second half through an Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic own goal, but Switzerland responded four minutes later when Geraldine Reutler deflected a through ball from Ramona Bachmann into the net.

The Parsons side only needed to avoid defeat to progress – the Swiss had to win – but made sure of that in an impressive final.
