EURO 2022: France beat Netherlands in extra time to reach first semi-final

France beat Netherlands

France defeated the defending champions, the Netherlands, in extra time to advance to the Euros semifinals for the first time.

On Wednesday in Milton Keynes, France’s Eve Perisset scored from the penalty spot in the 102nd minute to set up a meeting with Germany in the quarterfinals.

This occurred after Dominique Janssen fouled Kadidiatou Diani inside the penalty area, a decision made after the referee consulted the pitchside monitor.

Dutch goalkeeper Daphne van Domselaar turned in one of the tournament’s most impressive individual performances, but she was unable to block Perisset’s penalty kick.

The Netherlands’ star forward Vivianne Miedema missed a rare opportunity, but France always appeared more dangerous, and Grace Geyoro missed a golden opportunity in the final moments of normal time.
