Women’s football: Three more spots at Paris 2024 to be decided



UEFA Nations League Finals

The aforementioned Spain confirmed their place at Paris 2024 with a 3-0 victory over the Netherlands in the semi-final of the UEFA Nations League, courtesy of goals from Jenni Hermoso, Aitana Bonmati, and Ona Batlle

Elsewhere, France progressed to the final of the UWNL with a win over Germany, despite a late Giulia Gwinn goal halving the deficit created by strikes from Kadidiatou Diani and Sakina Karchaoui

They will now meet in the final, to be held on Wednesday 28 February, 19:00 CET kick-off.

The two finalists of the competition were guaranteed to secure a berth at the Games – however, given France have already done so as hosts, it means the final spot will be decided in the third-placed play-off between the Netherlands and Germany. 

Both nations have varying history with the Olympic Games. The Dutch side attended their first-ever Games at Tokyo 2020, where they reached the quarter-finals of the tournament. 

Germany, on the other hand, have bronze medals from 2000, 2004, 2008, before failing to qualify in 2012. They made their return in 2016, when they reached the top of the podium to take home gold. After missing out on 2020, the European giants will be determined to make a return once more. 

The game will be available to watch in the Netherlands on NPO 3 or ESPN 1, while ZDF will air it in Germany on 28 February, kicking off at 20:45 CET. 

Alternatively, the final will be shown live on TVE La 1 in Spain, and W9 in France.
