Red-hot Dutch can lift the Euro 2017 trophy

Denmark may be swept aside

The Dutch girls celebrate reaching the final

Holland v Denmark
Channel 4 & Eurosport 1, 4pm Sunday

After sweeping aside England with an impressive 3-0 victory in the semi-finals, Holland can round off their fabulous Euro 2017 tournament by clinching the title in Enschede.

The host nation have relished playing in front of a home crowd and they are 4-9 to become only the fourth country to lift the trophy by beating Denmark, who have reached the final having lost in five previous semi-finals.

Denmark took a major scalp when coming from a goal behind in the quarter-finals to knock out seven-time champions Germany, but they had to rely on penalties to beat Austria in the last four. The Danes are 4-1 outsiders to win in 90 minutes.

The sides met in Group A when a penalty from Sherida Spitse in the first half was enough for the Dutch to beat Denmark 1-0.

If Holland's impressive attackers Vivianne Miedema, Danielle van de Donk and Shanice van der Sanden are at their ruthless best they should be able to get ahead early and stay there.

Holland's defence has rarely been tested throughout the tournament and if they are as well-organised as they were against England it will be tough for Denmark to break them down.

Holland have demonstrated throughout this tournament they have all the ingredients to make sure they are celebrating at the final whistle.
