Miedema was criticised for her form early in the tournament but scored twice in the final to take her tally to four goals overall.

She said, ”I had a difficult beginning to this tournament and then things started to come together.

”The first half was very chaotic. We came up against a very good Denmark side. But in the second half we showed our class and we showed how well we can play football.

”It’s amazing to be European champion. I am crying on national TV. I have to let this sink in to really be aware of what we have achieved. This is amazing.”
