Jackie Groenen was the Netherlands' heroine as her goal booked their place in the FIFA Women's World Cup final at Sweden's expense.

The Manchester United-bound player scored in extra-time to set up the decider against holders USA.

The midfielder found the bottom corner of the net on 99 minutes. It was the moment that decided an evenly-matched fixture in favour of the European champions.

Afterr a flowing move, Groenen was teed up with an excellent lay-off. She finished precisely from 20 yards.

Tight

After a tight first half, both sides came closer in the second half, hitting the woodwork.

But neither side could find the elusive winner in normal time and they finished 0-0.

But it was Groenen who made the difference nine minutes into the first-half of extra-time to send the Dutch into their first World Cup final.

They will go in as underdogs against reigning champions USA, who beat England in their own semi-final.
