Notes

  1. ^ Although UEFA credit the goal to Putellas, other sources including the British Broadcasting Corporation attribute it as an own goal by England goalkeeper Karen Bardsley. Putellas failed to connect with Adriana Martín's left wing cross but Bardsley's face diverted the ball into the goal.
