The biggest shock of the tournament was the departure of fourth ranked team England in the group stages. They needed a victory over France but as you can see here they didn(***)t quite achieve it. [GALLO/GETTY]
The small island nation of Iceland however did manage to progress to the quarter-finals. They qualfied along with Denmark as the top third placed teams but were thrashed 4-0 by hosts Sweden [GALLO/GETTY]
Denmark faired a lot better though by knocking out one of the favourites France in the quarters. Their journey came to an end in a semi-final shootout against... [GALLO/GETTY]
...Norway - who here celebrate the moment when they made the final. Goalkeeper Ingrid Hjelmseth was the hero for Norway, saving Denmark(***)s first two spot kicks. [GALLO/GETTY]
The party for hosts Sweden came to an end in the semi-finals. Some of their players were inconsolable after a 1-0 defeat to Germany, in which they missed several great opportunities to equalise. [GALLO/GETTY]
