Euro Beach Soccer Cup Won By England

England held off a Switzerland fightback to lift the Euro Beach Soccer Cup with a 4-3 victory in Nazaré, Portugal.

Ramona Birrfelder put the Swiss ahead, only for Shannon Sievwright to equalise 2 minutes later, with Gemma Hillier and Molly Clark then taking England into a 3-1 lead.

Sievwright made it 4-1 but a tense finish was forced as Birrfelder and Schenk replied.

However, England held on to claim their first ever Euro Beach Soccer Cup.

The Netherlands took third place with a Grytsje Van de Berg goal enough to defeat the Czech Republic, while former holders Spain had to settle for fifth spot after beating Greece.
