Football: Keeper saves two penalties as Germany win sixth title
SOLNA, Sweden (AFP) - Goalkeeper Nadine Angerer saved two penalties to help Germany win a record sixth consecutive women's European Championship with a 1-0 success against Norway in Solna on Sunday.
Substitute Anja Mittag scored the only goal just a few minutes after being introduced from the bench at the beginning of the second period but the true star of the show was Angerer.
She deflected Trine Ronning's first half spot-kick away with her knee before thwarting Solveig Gulbrandsen from 12 yards in the second period.
Those two crucial stops meant Mittag's close range tap-in from a pinpoint cross from Celia Okoyino da Mbabi was enough to help the Germans avenge a shock group stage defeat by the same opponents.
