Stadium MK played host to the first of four UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 matches as Spain beat Finland 4-1 in the opening game of Group B.

In front of a record-breaking crowd of 16,819 at the home of MK Dons - the biggest-ever for a UEFA Women’s EURO group-stage match not involving a host nation - Spain came from behind to secure victory.

Linda Sällström had given the Fins an early lead but Irene Paredes and Aitana Bonmatí turned things around before half-time. Then, in the second half, Lucía García and Mariona Caldentey found the net to make it a winning start for the tournament favourites.

Finland are back in Stadium MK action on Tuesday when they will look to return to winning ways against Denmark, kick-off 3pm. The Fins then take on Germany in the final match in Group B on Saturday night, kick off 8pm.
