Denmark secured a place in their first-ever women’s Euro final by beating Austria 3-0 on penalties following a 0-0 draw after extra-time in Breda on Thursday.

Austria’s Laura Feiersinger blasted her penalty over while Viktoria Pinther and Verena Aschauer were denied by Danish keeper Stina Petersen.

Austria missed four penalties on the night in total, as Sarah Puntigam had fired over from the spot in the 13th minute after Denmark midfielder Maja Kildemoes’ handball.

In Sunday’s final, Denmark will take on either England or the Netherlands, who are playing at Enschede later on Thursday.
