That's it from us for today. After 31 games and a historic, record-breaking three weeks for women's football in Europe, the tournament has come to a close.

It wasn't to be this year for Scotland or England in the end, but it's the Netherlands' time to shine in Enschede.

They are 4-2 winners over Denmark today, after a thrilling final.

Thank for your company throughout these Euros. We'll see you again soon for the opening weekend of the Premier League, and we look forward to the Women's World Cup in France in 2019, which will be broadcast across the BBC. It'll be here before you know it!

Until next time, good bye!

FT: Netherlands 4-2 Denmark

So, for the first time since Norway in 1993, a country that isn't Germany has lifted the Women's European title.

Denmark trudge up to collect their runners-up medals. Sport can be cruel at times.

But they did themselves proud in their first final.

Martens wins player of the tournament

FT: Netherlands 4-2 Denmark

Barcelona winger Lieke Martens is awarded the official Player of the Tournament award.

She holds the slightly smaller trophy aloft proudly.

A worthy winner, you have to say. It could arguably have gone to any one of four Dutch players, to be honest. But Martens has been superb on the left flank.

England will take some consolation from the fact that the only team to beat them at these Championships are the winners at these Championships.

The Netherlands win the Euros

FT: Netherlands 4-2 Denmark

Denmark sink to their knees. What an effort from them. They weren't even expected to escape from their group. They put up a great fight this afternoon.

The hosts go wild. There are tears of joy for Arsenal's Vivianne Miedema, whose two goals sealed victory. The Netherlands substitutes and staff all stream on to the pitch, as the crowd go wild.

These are memorable, memorable moments for the host nation.

Off goes Kika van Es.

It's party time for the Dutch.

Netherlands 4-2 Denmark

The hosts are moments away from winning their first ever major women's football tournament.

It's only the fourth time they've actually reached a major tournament! There's been impressive progress for the Dutch women's game in a short space of time.

SUBSTITUTION (Netherlands)

Netherlands 4-2 Denmark

As four minutes of added time are indicated, Liverpool's Shanice van den Sanden goes off to a standing ovation. She's been brilliant down the right flank all game.

On comes Renate Jansen for stoppage time.

GOAL - Netherlands 4-2 Denmark

Vivianne Miedema

The Arsenal striker settles it! Vivianne Miedema seals victory for the Netherlands with her second of the game and her fourth of the tournament.

With Denmark pushing forward, she latches on to a high ball forward, toys with her marker, turns inside in the box and slams home, low past the keeper.

It's another excellent finish. The hosts are home and dry now. They're over the moon.

This is a Netherlands team that has progressed with great success at youth level, and now this means a lot to the people of this country.

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

The home fans are all on their feet in Enschede, clapping and chanting... Have their side got this in the bag now?

One. Last. Push.

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

The corner is cleared in scrappy style but only as far as Denmark's Sanne Troelsgaard, who dinks a half volley towards goal from range. It flies straight past Sari van Veenendaal, but just wide of the post.

The hosts breathe a big sigh of relief.

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

Denmark win a corner down the right-hand side. Is this the moment?

SUBSTITUTION (Denmark)

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

Is this Denmark's final throw of the dice? Nanna Christiansen comes on for Sofie Pedersen. Time is running out now, for the Danes.

The Netherlands are looking to get the ball in to the corner whenever they can.

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

There are around 10 minutes left for Denmark to try and get back on level terms and perhaps force extra time.

SUBSTITUTION (Denmark)

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

Line Roddik comes on at the back for Denmark, in place of Simone Boye Sorensen, who goes off injured.

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

From the resulting free-kick, delivered from way out on the left wing, Denmark's Sofie Pedersen heads downwards at goal but it's easily gathered by keeper Sari van Veenendaal.

YELLOW CARD (Netherlands)

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

Dutch defender Stephanie van der Gragt is booked for a late tackle on Denmark captain Pernille Harder, who is always looking to create something, so busy, so energetic, so skillful.

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

Now the hosts go close to a fourth goal, but midfielder Jackie Groenen is slightly off balance and leaning back as she swerves a shot just high and wide of the top corner, from a fraction outside the penalty area.

CLOSE!

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

Substitute Frederikke Thogersen blazes just wide for Denmark, as the ball bounced to her in the area when Dutch keeper Sari van Veenendaal rose to punch away a cross. Another change goes begging.

Karin:@BBCSport what's the most goals in a tournament final ever (male or female)?

Well, Germany beat England 6-2 in this final eight years ago, so we aren't quite on those levels yet, but this thriller is far, far more evenly matched.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

The Danes almost equalise! Katrine Veje powers a sweet strike on to the post after a fine counter attack. It could easily be 3-3 there. So close.

GREAT SAVE!

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

Stina Lykke Petersen somehow, SOMEHOW denies Vivianne Miedema from six yards. It's a magnificent instinctive save, sticking her leg out, to keep out the Arsenal striker's powerful volley at the back post.

That could be a crucial moment in the game.

It was a daisy-cutter of a free-kick to put the Dutch ahead.

SUBSTITUTION (Netherlands)

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

The hosts make the game's first change, as Arsenal's Dominique Janssen comes on at the back for Desiree van Lunteren, who picked up a knock in the first half.

So four Gunners players are on the field now.

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

Kika van Es does well down the left for the Oranje, but her deep cross is slightly overhit and Shanice van de Sanden can't quite reach it.

Netherlands 3-2 Denmark

It's all the Netherlands now. They're enjoying a fine spell of pressure. Are Denmark tiring?

Rachel Brown-Finnis

It's beautifully simple. Anouk Dekker on the end of the wall pushes the wall to create space. It's driven right in to the corner. The keeper doesn't even move.
