The Netherlands have advanced to the FIFA Women's World Cup final with a 1-0 victory over Sweden in the semi-final.

After a rather unimpressive 90 minutes, Jackie Groenen scored the winning goal nine minutes into extra time.

Having knocked out former winners Japan and then Italy in the previous two rounds, the Dutch are now through to their first-ever World Cup final.

They will face defending champions, the USA in Sunday's title decider, while Sweden will take on England in Saturday's third-place play-off.
