Dutch defending sends the Oranje through to World Cup Final after 1-0 win over Sweden

The Netherlands booked a spot in their first ever Women's World Cup final. They beat Sweden 1-0 Wednesday night at the Groupama Stadium in Lyon, France, with a goal in extra time.

Euronews’s sports editor Andy Robini singled out the Dutch defence for praise.
