A Swiss own goal opened the scoring after Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic diverted a Stefanie van der Gragt header into her own net shortly after halftime.

Switzerland kept the pressure on, though, and replied only four minutes later when Geraldine Reuteler slotted in from close range to draw the scores level.

But Dutch substitute Romee Leuchter netted her first goal for her country in the 84th minute before Victoria Pelova made it 3-1 five minutes later following a lengthy VAR review.

Leuchter completed the rout with her second goal of the game deep into injury time.
