Netherlands equalised in the second half to draw 1-1 with Sweden in the UEFA Women’s Euros Group C game at Bramall Lane.

The clash of two of the tournament favourites was watched by 21,342, a Women’s Euros record for a group stage game that did not involve a host nation.

There had been few chances at either end when the Dutch lost goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal to a shoulder injury, as well as Aniek Nouwen.

Fridolina Rolfo was close to beating substitute keeper Daphne van Domselaar from distance, with the opener arriving 10 minutes before the break as Kosovare Asllani crossed for an unmarked Jonna Andersson to finish.

Lieke Martens forced a save from Hedvig Lindahl in response and Danielle van de Donk put a good chance over the bar.

Jill Roord capped a good move on 52 minutes to get the leveller and might have scored again later on, but was thwarted by Magda Eriksson.

Rolfo had another effort from distance but failed to beat the keeper.
