Netherlands coach Sarina Wiegman: "This performance against a top nation is really a breakthrough for us. We've proven to ourselves what we're capable of and that's a huge step. "It was a fanastic experience today, although we have done nothing yet. There was team work, there was fighting spirt and we also wanted to play good football - today all those ingredients were there. That's something to be proud of."

Norway coach Martin Sjögren: "The atmosphere was fantastic. When we arrived they did not boo us but even cheered us, so that was a great experience for the players."
