‘They won’t want to play us’ Confident Netherlands coach after reaching Euro 2022 quarter-finals

France will face Germany in the semi-finals of Euro 2022 after Eve Perisset’s extra-time penalty secured a 1-0 win over defending champions Netherlands.

Defender Perisset, who joined Chelsea last month from Bordeaux, converted a spot kick awarded via VAR in the 102nd minute at Rotherham as Corinne Deacon’s side finally managed to force their way past Dutch keeper Daphne van Domselaar.

Les Bleues created plenty of chances in normal times but were frustrated by some fine saves from Van Domselaar, great goal-line clearances by defender Stefanie van der Gragt and near misses which included Delphine Cascarino hitting the post .

Perisset’s strike from 12 yards took them to a meeting with eight-time winners Germany in Milton Keynes on Wednesday, their first ever Euro semi-final, having made quarter-final exits in each of the three last editions as well as the last two. 2016 World Cups and Olympics. The Netherlands – 2017 winners on home soil and 2019 World Cup runners-up under current England boss Sarina Wiegman, now with England’s Mark Parsons in charge – have saw their title defense come to an end.

France through to Euro 2022 semi-finals after knocking out defending champions Netherlands in extra time

France will face Germany in the semi-finals of Euro 2022 after claiming a 1-0 win over the Netherlands in extra time.

In truth, Les Bleues had enough chances to win the match twice in the first half, but after Delphine Cascarino hit the post, Dutch goalkeeper Daphne van Domselaar showed in fine form, while the defender Stefanie van der Gragt made two brilliant blocks down the line too.

With the scores after 90 minutes at Rotherham, a second in this week’s four quarter-finals went to an extra 30 – and in the 100th minute a penalty was awarded after a VAR check which Eve Perisset smashed at the house, despite Van Domselaar getting down to it with his fingertips.

That proved enough for victory and the French side will be in action again on Wednesday in Milton Keynes, a night after England faced Sweden in the other semi-final in Sheffield.
