Norway Spain 2:0

Norway bludgeoned Spain 3-1 in Kalmar to book their place in the last four of women's Euro 2013.

Solveig Gulbrandsen struck on 24 minutes with a cross that somehow managed to fly into the corner of the net before Irene Paredes hooked a volley into her own attempting a clearance before the break.

Ada Hegerberg added the third and clinching goal with a fine run and finish from 20 yards just before the hour mark with Jennifer Hormoso's effort in injury time for Spain a mere consolation.

Norway are into the semis of this tournament for a fourth straight time. They will meet the winners of France and Denmark in the last four in Norrkoping on Wednesday night.
