Flying Finns down Danes - 24 Aug 2009 - Women's Football NewsHosts Finland got off to a winning start in the 2009 UEFA Women's Championships as a goal early in the second half gave them a 1-0 victory over Denmark.
In front of 16,324 fans at the Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, Denmark had the better of things in the first half and Finland found themselves holding on to keep the scoreline goalless at the interval.
However the home crowd was sent into raptures four minutes after the restart as Maija Saari curled in a free kick from the right which eluded everybody and found its way inside the far post to put her side in front.
With goalkeeper Tinja-Riikka Korpela in fine form, making one excellent save from Johanna Rasmussen, Finland held on to put themselves within one victory of a quarter final place.
Holland sit on top of Group A after they won the opening match of the tournament 2-0 against Ukraine in Turku.
Vera Pauw's side inflicted the damage early on by scoring both goals inside the opening nine minutes, taking the lead when Kirsten van de Ven headed in a cross from Sylvia Smit.
Five minutes later, a shot from Manon Melis struck the bar and Karin Stevens followed up to tuck home the rebound and double the Dutch advantage.
