Sweden led through Fridolina Rolfö, Frida Maanum and Karina Sævik then turned the game round, Nathalie Björn and Olivia Schough switched the score back in the Swedes’ favour late on but Arsenal’s Maanum forced a draw in the 96th minute.

Belgium’s Tessa Wullaert scored two second-half goals when held 2-2 at home by Slovenia, whose Kaja Korosec had opened the scoring with Zara Kramzar netting an 89th-minute leveller.

Netherlands fought back from conceding a goal by Poland’s Weronika Zawistowska, as Malgorzata Grec’s own-goal was followed up with one apiece from Lineth Beerensteyn, Lieke Martens and Jill Roord for a 4-1 victory.

Italy beat Colombia 2-1 after a late exchange of goals, Valentina Giacinti’s opener eventually cancelled out by Catalina Usme before an own-goal from Monica Ramos.
