Germany drawn with Norway at Women's Euro 2013


GOTHENBURG, Sweden (AP) -Germany will have to take on familiar rival Norway in its bid to capture a sixth consecutive European championship title next year, following Friday's draw for the Women's Euro 2013.

The Germans will take on the Norwegians at the group stage for the third time in a row. Netherlands and Iceland are the other two sides in Group B.

Host nation Sweden will face Denmark in Group A of the 12-nation tournament, which will be played July 10-28, before meeting Finland and Italy.

England, the 2009 runner-up, was drawn in Group C with France, Russia and Spain.

Karen Espelund, chairwoman of UEFA's Women's Football Committee, said: "Women's football is winning ground at a resounding pace. Around 70,000 people watched the Great Britain women play Brazil this summer at the Olympics."
