A contest between two teams of equal strength - the second semi-final at Parc de Olympique Lyonnais between Netherlands and Sweden proved to be a battle of temperament as the unlikely semi-finalists fought for a chance to set up a historic final against the defending champions United States of America.
The Americans were indebted to goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher for saving a late penalty in their 2-1 semi-final win over England on Tuesday.
"I'm really proud I'm going there but to come there with a World Cup that would be really cool", said Roord.
But Netherlands knocked Sweden out of Euro 2017, winning 2-0 in the quarterfinals with goals from Lieke Martens and Vivianne Miedema.
"And from that World Cup final I have always been incredibly fascinated by Dutch football - Johan Cruyff and everyone". Half of the USA's starting back line that day isn't with the team in France now.
Van Veenendaal was at it again in the 56th minute, robbing Fischer for a second time by diving to tip her low, curling shot off the post.
Biden, Harris Numbers Too Close to Call in US Democratic Primaries
Biden has the support of 22 percent of voters while Harris secured 20 percent, according to the poll published on Tuesday. Warren also made gains in the CNN poll , from 8 points to 15 percent, while Sanders was down 4 points to 14 percent.
But then, in the 99th minute, Groenen sent a lovely, low-flying shot across Hedvig Lindahl's goal that tucked in just behind the far post.
Two years after the Dutch won their first major trophy - the European Championship - Groenen is already dreaming of a first world title in only their second attempt.
"I think the pressure is off now", said Miedema, whose fine header against the Azzurre was her third goal of the tournament and helped ensure a place at Tokyo 2020. She finished precisely from 20 yards. Unfortunately, both teams have seen injuries to their star forwards, so the next few rest days will be crucial in deciding the outcome of Sunday's final.
"Of course we watched America's game against England", said Groenen. She made an immediate impact with her speed down the right wing.
It was the first semifinal in the tournament's history to go into extra time, CNN reported.
Speaking to reporters after the match, she joked: "I didn't tell you guys?"
After heartbreaking defeats, England and Sweden will return to action on Saturday with bronze medals on the line. "Finishing third is a lot better than finishing fourth, so we're going to do everything in our power to do that".
