Nadine Angerer helps Germany retain Euro crown for sixth successive time
Germany were crowned European champions for the sixth time in a row on Sunday night after they beat Norway in the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 Final.
Goalkeeper Nadine Angerer was the hero as she saved two penalties, denying Norway's Trine Ronning and Solveig Gulbrandsen in each half in a dramatic and hard-fought match in Stockholm.
German substitute Anja Mittag scored the only goal of the game after 49 minutes, finishing off a fine passing move to clinch victory.
Silvia Neid's Germany had to defend bravely in the second half but have now won every tournament since 1993.
The Germans also hit the bar after only one minute through Nadine Kessler - and again late on - but needed their keeper to win it with two stunning penalty saves.
First, Cathrine Dekkerhus went down in the area under challenge from Da Mbabi, but Angerer, 34, saved Ronning's kick.
Mittag made it 1-0 after the break before Norway won another penalty - this time Angerer saving from Gulbrandsen to break Norway's resolve.
