A crowd of 20,721 watched Germany beat Finland 3-0 in the final group-stage match to take place at Stadium MK during the UEFA Women’s EURO.

Despite a resilient start from the Fins, Sophia Kleinherne put Germany ahead just before half-time with a close-range header into a vacated net.

German captain Alexandra Popp, scoring in her third successive UEFA Women’s EURO match, doubled her nation’s lead with a headed effort of her own early in the second period before substitute Nicole Anyomi made it three with a right-footed strike late on.

The attendance of 20,721 was the biggest yet at Stadium MK during the tournament, bettering the 16,819 who witnessed the opening game between Spain and Finland. A crowd of over 11,800 watched on as Denmark beat the Fins earlier this week.

Stadium MK will play host to one more fixture at the UEFA Women’s EURO - the second of the two semi finals on Wednesday 27 July, kick-off 8pm. The nations involved will be confirmed next week following the completion of the quarter finals.

Tickets have SOLD OUT for the semi final but supporters without a ticket can watch along on the BBC.
