Liverpool Ladies winger Shanice van de Sanden has spoken of a 'dream come true' after scoring the winning goal for Netherlands in the opening game of Euro 2017.

Reds star van de Sanden scored the winning goal for the host nation in the opening game of the Group A match against Norway in her home city of Utrecht.

van de Sanden said: "A dream came true today. I played in my home city, I was born two minutes from the stadium and my whole family was in the stands.

"This is the first game so we can enjoy it but we have to calm down and focus on the next game.

"My whole team played really well and it was nice to score the goal in this stadium. We win together but I like to steal the show. With all the people in the stands, everyone in orange, it was amazing.

"The King of Netherlands came to see us in the locker room after and said a few words. That was pretty cool."
