SOLNA, Sweden -- Germany beat Norway 1-0 Sunday to win its eighth women's European championship in front of a record 41,000 spectators.

Celia Okoyino da Mbabi raced down the left wing and passed to substitute Anja Mittag who scored in the 49th minute.

Norway failed to score with two penalties. Germany goalkeeper Nadine Angerer saved Trine Ronning's kick in the 29th and again denied Solveig Gulbrandsen in the 61st.
