There was an obvious comparison to be made between the two games. The Netherlands, too, had led at one point, the insatiable goalscorer Vivienne Miedema getting yet another goal in the first half. The USA came from behind before half-time, only for Miedema to equalise. Like Team GB, the Netherlands were awarded a penalty, and they too missed it.
Neither side could find a winner in extra-time and the USA triumphed 4-2 on penalties, setting up a semi-final against Canada, themselves penalty shoot-out winners against Brazil.
