    Time:90'
    • Norway (W)
    • Spain (W)
    • 90+3' That is the last action of the match. A 3-1 win for Norway. They will face France or Denmark in the last four.
    • 90+1' GOAL! Hermoso plays a lovely one-two with Boquete before sending a shot crashing into the corner of the net. 3-1.
    • 89' Dekkerhus nods at goal, but Tirapu well positioned on her line to make the stop. We are into three minutes of time added on.
    • 88' Norway have a corner here. Bit of pushing and shoving in the box.
    • 87' Hermoso leans back and lifts the ball over the bar from 20 yards. Sums it up really.
    • 86' Dekkerhus is flagged for offside before Putellas is flagged for offside at the other end.
    • 85' Landa concedes a free-kick for a foul on Ryland. Landa booked for that one.
    • 84' Paredes forced to knock the ball off the line after Tirapu had failed to clasp it coming off her line.
    • 83' Thorsnes has a shot blocked as Spain scramble the ball off the line. Norway almost in for a fourth goal.
    • 82' A change coming then for Norway as Ryland replaces Hansen.
    • 81' On come Borja and off goes Adriana for the Spaniards.
    • 80' Dekkerhus takes over from Isaksen for Norway.
    • 79' Hermoso sees a shot from distance deflect wide of the target. More changes on the way.
    • 78' Paredes hooks the ball over shoulder in the Norway box, but safely into the arms of Hjelmseth.
    • 77' Stensland has been the top player on the park today for the Norwegian side. Little doubt about that.
    • 76' Marta Torrejón penalised for a foul on Hegland before Tirapu pulls a high looping free-kick out of the air.
    • 74' Hjelmseth quickly off his line to grasp the loose ball. Another Spain attack comes up short.
    • 73' Thorsnes replaces Hegerberg for Norway. Gives her a run-out for the final 15 or so minutes.
    • 72' Adriana takes the corner for Spain, but moves comes to nothing. Norway going to make a change here.
    • 70' Landa takes over from Ibarra for Spain, who have a corner here.
    • 68' Spain can't get a shot away. Poor end product to that latest move as Vazquez heads wide.
    • 66' Spain trying to look good in keeping the ball, but not really going anywhere with it. That has been the problem for large swathes of this match.
    • 65' The Norway coach Even Pellerud looks happy enough with his lot after witnessing this performance from his side.
    • 64' Norway much the better team today with Spain not coping strongly enough in trying to defend properly.
    • 62' The locals loving that moment, and Spain face a long, long way back from this. Surely game over in this match.
    • 61' GOAL! Hegerberg turns to send a shot spinning into the corner of the net from 20 yards out. 3-0. Surely game over now.
    • 59' Vazquez arrives to take over from Garcia for Spain. Just over 30 minutes to rescue this match here.
    • 58' Norway survive that moment, but they have been the better side so far in this second period.
    • 57' Adriana fails to pick out Calderon on the run. That was a real chance for Spain not snapped up.
    • 56' Marta Torrejón is penalised for a foul on Hegland. Norway on the attack seconds later.
    • 55' Meseguer sees a cross fly straight out of play. Spain perhaps getting a bit frustrated.
    • 53' Stensland sees a shot charged down by a blue shirt. Plenty of venom, but couldn't get beyond the Spanish woman.
    • 52' Ronning heads inches wide of goal from the Stensland cross. Fine effort.
    • 51' Putellas with a shot, but no real pace on the effort. All too easy for Hjelmseth to make the stop.
    • 50' Ibarra doing well to head clear from the heart of her defence. Watched that high looping ball like a hawk there.
    • 49' Boquee showing some trickery out wide before Norway thump the long ball down the park.
    • 48' Spain have to commit bodies forward otherwise this match will run away from them quite quickly.
    • 47' The winner of this match will face France or Denmark in the last four. That match coming up from 7.30pm this evening.
    • 46' And we are off and running then in the second half of this contest.
    • 45' The whistle for the break sounds. A 2-0 lead for Norway over Spain.
    • 44' Tirapu holds a powerful drive by Stensland in the Spain goal.
    • 43' GOAL! Paredes lifts the ball into her own net trying to clear the loose ball. What a disaster! Suddenly Spain trail 2-0. Long way back now.
    • 42' OFFSIDE FLAG goes up as Gulbrandsen heads into the net. A let-off perhaps for Spain.
    • 41' Adriana tries to pick out Putellas, but just too much pace on the attempted pass.
    • 40' Final ball continues to elude Spain. And that is worrying with Norway playing so narrow and deep in their own half.
    • 39' Some lovely sharp play from Boquete as Spain race to the Norwegian end of the park, but the move collapses at the wrong time.
    • 38' Hergerberg just failing to get on the end of the corner from Stensland as Spain look to break.
    • 37' Stensland sees a shot deflect wide of goal and the Norwegians earn another corner.
    • 36' Spain coach Ignacio Quereda looking a bit concerned about his lot at the moment. His team can't afford to ship another goal here.
    • 35' Adriana sees a flag go up for offside. Norway will take those all night long.
    • 34' Hermoso manages to get a header at goal, but easy enough for Hjelmseth to make the stop for Norway.
    • 33' Gulbrandsen concedes a free-kick for a foul on Tirapu in the Spain goal.
    • 32' No doubt that Norway are more efficient in defence if not technique. That is carrying the day at the moment.
    • 31' Stensland can't get over the top of the ball, but still a fine effort as the shot clears the bar.
    • 30' Plenty of holding off the ball, but referee seems content to let it all go for now.
    • 29' Adriana sees a shot swerve wide from a volley under pressure. Another half chance not snapped up by Spain.
    • 28' Stensland doing well from the corner kick to head clear from the Putellas delivery.
    • 27' Isaksen concedes a free-kick for a foul on Adriana.
    • 26' Stensland with the corner, but Norway can't get a header on the ball as Spain wallop the clearance long.
    • 25' Spain really being pushed back here. That Spanish defence looking none too comfortable.
    • 24' Adriana fires a shot at goal, but Hegland gets down well to make the block. Fine stop.
    • 23' GOAL! Gulbrandsen sees a cross fly straight into the net with Tirapu failing to get across her goal. Norway lead 1-0.
    • 22' Stensland with a lovely header into the path of Hegerberg, but she knocks the ball wide with Tirapu beaten. Great chance not taken.
    • 21' The referee having a few words with a couple of the players. Some late challenges flying in off the ball.
    • 20' Tirapu comes off her line to collect a high ball in the air. Solid piece of goalkeeping.
    • 19' Gulbrandsen takes one touch before thumping a shot a couple of yards over the bar. Best effort of the match so far.
    • 18' Ruth Garcia takes no chances as she hammers a loose ball straight out of play after turning well.
    • 17' Boquete is running matters up front for the Spanish at the moment. A very dangerous player.
    • 16' Mjelde is penalised for a foul on Hermoso.
    • 15' Stensland knocks a ball straight out of play. All a bit scrappy from the Norwegians.
    • 13' The Norway fans making plenty of noise, but they can't get on the ball at the moment. Spain showing better technique.
    • 12' Putellas giving Spain so much width so they can deliver balls from the left and the right.
    • 11' Spain keeping possession so, so well. Rolling the ball from side to side and the first touch is very much there.
    • 9' Spain with five attempts on goal, Norway yet to manage a shot in this match.
    • 8' Spain keep the ball like the men's team at the moment. Akerhaugen showing great strength to hold off Putellas.
    • 7' Christensen is flagged for offside after setting off too soon.
    • 6' Adriana misses the target, but she blasts her shot well wide. Decent hit from distance.
    • 5' It was Ronning who saw her free-kick cleared there. Game raging from end to end at the moment.
    • 4' Putellas late on Akerhaugen, but Spain deal well with the danger to clear the free-kick.
    • 3' Akerhaugen with her own clearance before Putellas just fails to connect at the back post. Some fine attacking play by the Spanish here.
    • 2' Spain keeping the ball well early on. Paredes knocks the ball out of play deep in his own half.
    • 1' Norway get the first half off and running. Glorious day for football.
    • 16:57 Teams on the way out for this one: Norway in traditional red, Spain in changed light blue strip.
    • 16:55 Just the one change to the Spain lineup that drew with Russia - Nagore Calderón takes over from Vicky Losada for the Spanish side.
