The Women’s European Championships kicked off in the Netherlands on Sunday. 16 teams are taking part, which means an abundance of Europe's most talented players are on show. These are just some of the players we think you should be looking out for.
Germany were expected by many to roll Sweden over in the Euro opener. Instead, the Scandinavians' persistent pressing muted the holders' midfield metronomes and earned them a historic point, writes DW's Matt Pearson.
Defenders Josephine Henning and Babett Peter broke Germany's goal drought in a tense 2-1 victory. Italy, who finished the game with 10 players, bow out of the competition as a result.
