Blues pair Sjoeke Nusken and Ann-Katrin Berger will compete at the Paris 2024 Olympics after Germany secured a third-place finish in the UEFA Nations League.

The Germans dispatched Netherlands 2-0 on Wednesday night in Herenveen, therefore winning the third-place play-off following their defeat to France last week.

Klara Buhl's half-volley from close range in the 66th minute and Lea Schueller's header 12 minutes later sealed the win, with our own Nusken completing the full 90 minutes in the midfield engine room.

Berger was an unused substitute on the night and the victory ensures Germany have qualified for the Olympic tournament, which will take place from late July to early August this summer.

Sadly the Nations League final itself didn't feature another win for a Chelsea star. Eve Perisset's France were beaten 2-0 by Spain in the tournament decider, with Perisset an unused substitute for Les Bleues.

First half goals from Aitana Bonmati and Mariona Caldentey were enough to give Spain the win and the maiden Nations League crown for the World Champions.

Elsewhere, Sweden rounded off their Nations League relegation play-off with Bosnia and Herzegovina in fine style with a trio of Blues involved. Nathalie Bjorn captained her country, Zecira Musovic started between the sticks with the Swedes holding a 5-0 aggregate lead from the first leg.

And they managed to repeat the trick in Stockholm securing another 5-0 win to keep their place in League A, with goals from Matilda Vinberg, Stina Blackstenius, Rosa Kafaji, Filippa Angeldal and Pauline Hammarlund. Johanna Rytting Kaneryd also appeared, coming off the bench on the hour mark.

Over in Houston, USA, Canada's perfect W Gold Cup campaign continued as they beat Costa Rica 3-0 in their final group game.

Blues pair Kadeisha Buchanan and Ashley Lawrence both completed a full ninety minutes, as goals from Jordyn Huitema and a double from Shelina Zadorsky ensured they topped Group C with maximum points and without conceding a single goal.

Lawrence and Buchanan will now have their eyes set on a quarter-final with the same opponent on Saturday, after Costa Rica progressed as one of the best third place teams, with a drawing of lots seeing them edge out Puerto Rico to sneak through.
