The Netherlands won their first major women's international tournament after a thrilling victory over Denmark in the Euro 2017 final on home soil. Denmark led through Nadia Nadim's early penalty but the Dutch soon levelled as Arsenal's Vivianne Miedema tucked in. Lieke Martens put the hosts ahead with a precise 20-yard finish, but Denmark's Pernille Harder slotted in to equalise. Dutch captain Sherida Spitse blasted in a free-kick to make it 3-2, and Miedema sealed a historic triumph late on. Surprise finalists Denmark had pushed for another equaliser late on, as Sanne Troelsgaard went close with a swerving half-volley which dipped past the right-hand post. But the Dutch, backed by the majority of a sold-out 28,182 crowd in Enschede, never looked in serious danger of conceding again and put the game beyond the Danes when Miedema scored the fourth. It sparked a party atmosphere inside the FC Twente Stadion where virtually every home supporter was wearing the national team colour of orange. An emotional Miedema appeared to be in tears in the final few seconds of the match, before the stadium erupted when the final whistle was blown. No stopping the NetherlandsThe Netherlands had never reached the final of a major tournament, with their previous best performance coming when they reached the semi-finals of the 2009 European Championships. They were not among the pre-tournament favourites, but once France and holders Germany - who were going for a sixth successive title - had been eliminated, they built on the momentum created with the support of their fans. The Dutch had won all of their games at the tournament leading up to the final, conceding just once in five matches, and beating England in the last four. Watched by Dutch football legends Marco van Basten and Louis van Gaal in the stands, the home side produced a professional display to fight back against a Denmark team they had already beaten 1-0 in the group stage. After twice going behind, the Netherlands started to find their rhythm midway through the first half and eventually showed their superiority. Martens named best player as Taylor finishes top scorer The Netherlands are only the fourth different nation to win the women's European Championships, after Germany's 22-year reign ended. Joint-captains Spitse and Reading's Mandy van den Berg, who came on as a substitute in the closing stages, lifted the trophy amid joyous celebrations for the host nation. It was not the only prize won by the Dutch, with Barcelona winger Martens being presented with the official Player of the Tournament award after a series of dazzling displays on the left flank. However, the Golden Boot was won by England's Jodie Taylor. Arsenal's Taylor finished as the tournament's top scorer with five goals, although Arsenal striker Miedema could have levelled by scoring a hat-trick against the Danes.

Tour de France: 1-23 July Coverage: Live text commentary of every stage on the BBC Sport website. BBC Radio coverage on 5 live sports extra and/or website from 14:30 BST on every stage. World champion Peter Sagan was disqualified from the Tour de France for causing Mark Cavendish to crash on stage four. The Briton accused Sagan of elbowing him during the sprint finish in Vittel. Cavendish, 32, finished the stage after receiving medical treatment for several minutes, before going for an X-ray. "I get on well with Peter and a crash is a crash but I'm not a fan of him putting his elbow in," said Dimension Data rider Cavendish. Briton Geraint Thomas kept his overall lead as Arnaud Demare became the first Frenchman to win a bunch sprint stage at the Tour since 2006. Defending champion Chris Froome remains second overall, 12 seconds behind compatriot Thomas. 'Cavendish hits the deck!' Listen to commentary of crash Was it right to disqualify Sagan? Listen to the BeSpoke podcast Crash mars Demare's maiden win Mark Cavendish In scenes reminiscent of the opening stage in Harrogate in 2014, Cavendish received treatment on the road The sprint for the line was in full flow with Cavendish tracking Demare down the right-hand side of the road with the riders travelling at about 60km/h. Sagan also moved to his right to use Frenchman Demare as a lead-out man and, from cameras behind the race, seemed to flick an elbow out at Cavendish as the two battled for space. The camera angle from the front suggested Sagan was trying to keep his balance but leaving Cavendish with nowhere to go except into the barriers. Cavendish, who has won 30 Tour de France stages - four behind the all-time record of Eddy Merckx - said Sagan apologised to him after the stage. The Manxman landed heavily on the right shoulder that he dislocated when he crashed out on stage one of the 2014 Tour de France in Harrogate. His right hand was bandaged before he remounted his bike and pedalled over the line. "I need stitches in a finger," said Cavendish, who also had his right arm in a sling after the stage. "It's something to do with the shoulder that I hurt in Harrogate. I'm not a doctor but I'm not optimistic." Mark Cavendish (centre) An injured Cavendish crosses the line in Vittel Slovakian Sagan stayed upright to finish second on the stage, but his disqualification means his hopes of equalling Erik Zabel's record of winning six successive points classification titles is over. The Bora-Hansgrohe rider said before his disqualification was announced: "He was coming from behind. I did not have time to react and go left. He came to me and I had to defend." Asked if he had apologised for the crash, he said: "For sure, because it's not nice to crash like that." Dimension Data sporting director Roger Hammond tweeted an overhead view of the incident with the words: "Causes a big crash at 1.5 to go, elbows fellow competitor in the head 300 meters... can only result in one decision. #Goodbye." The initial stage results posted on the Tour's website showed Sagan had been docked 30 seconds and 80 points, but Dimension Data contested that decision. After a review, Philippe Marien, president of the race commission, said: "We've decided to disqualify Peter Sagan as he endangered some of his colleagues seriously in the final metres of the sprint in Vittel. "We will apply article 12.104 of the rules of the UCI... in which case commissaires (the race jury) can decide to enforce a judgement to disqualify a rider." Peter Sagan and Mark Cavendish Hammond tweeted a screen grab of the incident, with Cavendish far right 'Extremely harsh to disqualify Sagan' - analysis Former GB cyclist Rob Hayles on BBC Radio 5 live Cavendish was unlucky to come off the worst. I also think Sagan has come off unlucky. It is extremely harsh. He was in a position he couldn't get himself out of. The bike was coming from underneath him and the elbow coming up is a natural instinct of the rider. He was off balance as well. It is true from first look it appears that he gets his elbow up and 'whack, have some of that, Cavendish'. It made it look worse than it was. Initially we heard that they had relegated Sagan to the back of the peloton and a 30-second penalty. I thought that was fair. Something had to be done and they needed to make a decision. An hour later they disqualified him. It is bad for Sagan and really bad for the race - the world champion with a potential green jersey going home. It is a brave decision by the commissaires. They have said it is an irregular sprint. That is sprinting; they are all irregular. Had Sagan not done what he did he would have gone down himself. He had nowhere to go other than to put his brakes on and they don't do that. Thomas retains race lead The 207km stage from Mondorf-les-Bains had been a relatively sedate race after Belgian Guillaume van Keirsbulck made a solo break from the start. He led for around 191km, building a lead of 13 minutes, before being caught by the peloton as the teams of the sprinters jostled to get their riders in the best positions. Welshman Thomas was also brought down in a separate crash in the closing stages but said: "Luckily I took off most of the speed." He said Team Sky team-mate Froome was also "OK" after being held up by the incident. Thomas crossed the line more than two minutes after Demare, but because the crash happened in the final 3km on a designated sprint stage, he was credited with the same time as the winner and retains the yellow jersey. Alexander Kristoff was promoted to second and Andre Greipel third after the disqualification of Sagan, who finished second. All the other general classification riders finished with the same time, meaning no significant changes in the standings. Stage five is the first mountain-top finish of the race, at La Planche des Belles Filles, the scene of Froome's first Tour stage win in 2012. Stage four result: 1.

Fears around 4,500 fans of Dutch club - which has a reputation for hooliganism - have bought seats in the home end from the Red Devils' own website Manchester United are facing a security nightmare after thousands of Feyenoord fans purchased tickets for next month's Europa League clash in areas of Old Trafford reserved for home supporters. It is understood that up to 4,500 followers of the Dutch club have had money refunded after United realised that their own website had allowed fans living in Holland to make a purchase. Sunday Mirror Sport has seen an email sent out by United to people they suspect to be Feyenoord fans. But sources in Rotterdam claim that many supporters have already booked travel and accommodation for the game on November 24 and are still planning to make the journey. Feyenoord supporters have a reputation that has spread throughout Europe That would be a recipe for trouble, with the Dutch club's fanatical followers gaining a notorious reputation for aggro. Feyenoord top the Dutch table when it come to holliganism. And a section of their De Kuip stadium was closed for the visit of United last month. Last season, Feyenoord fans left a trail of destruction in Rome after one European tie, smashing up priceless public statues and fountains in the Italian capital. Feyenoord have since been warned by UEFA that they will be hit with a five-year Euro ban if they cause any more trouble after the return game against Roma was halted for 10 minutes when an inflatable banana was thrown onto the pitch towards Ivorian striker Gervinho. United are yet to tell Feyenoord what their official ticket allocation for the game will be. Greater Manchester Police are likely to recommend that United plan for having no more than 3,000 fans in town given the potential for trouble. Feyenoord estimate that they could sell three times that number. Source: http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/manchester-united-facing-security-nightmare-9004950
