Sweden took the host baton from their Scandinavian neighbours Finland. All attendance records were smashed at event with previous best sales of 129,000 overtaken. The final tally is set to be around 220,000. [GALLO/GETTY]

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]

Seven-times Euro champions Germany are favourites for the title. They have won the last five European competitions and are ranked second in the world after the USA, nine places above rivals Norway. But in footy you never do know! [GALLO/GETTY]

... But of course they did it. Germany have clinched their eighth European title, making it six out of the last six titles with 1-0 victory over Norway [AFP]
