    Italy 0-2 Netherlands

    Laura Bassett

    Former England defender on BBC One

    Italy didn't create much but all credit to them. This is their first World Cup for so long and they're changing perceptions back home. Their league's getting stronger and they will grow. In four years' time they will be here and give even better performances.

    Claire Rafferty

    Ex-England international on BBC One

    Italy just didn't come out of the dressing room at half-time. That first 15 minutes they played right into the Netherlands' hands, giving away silly set-pieces on the edge of the box and consequently they scored two goals from it.

    Italy bow out of the tournament despite not conceding a goal from open play.

    Set-piece problems.

    Tearful Italy players applaud their fans

    Laura Bassett

    Former England defender on BBC One

    Set-pieces were the difference and I think Italy will be disappointed with their performance coming away from this game. I don't think they showed their true class and composure, and as the game went on they lost their emotional control, giving away free-kicks in dangerous areas, and that just invites pressure.

    Vivianne Miedema didn't have to work hard for her goal. She runs straight to goal and just flicks it on. It's great timing from her but disappointing from the Italy defence. They've got to be more powerful in those positions.

    Van der Gragt didn't actually move for her goal, she just stays on the spot and jumps up. She is a big, physical centre-back but that's far too easy at this level. They were two silly goals to concede.

    The Italy players are distraught on the pitch, there is no consoling them.

  8. 'Spitse stepped up when she had to'

    FT: Italy 0-2 Netherlands

    Rachel Brown-Finnis

    Ex-England goalkeeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

    The Netherlands had everything with the understanding and the leadership of Sherida Spitse who stepped up when she needed to.

    It was still a 4/5 for the Netherlands and everyone connected to the Dutch will know they can find another gear, and they'll need to find it because they are into the semi-final.

    Italy 0-2 Netherlands

    Another Dutch free-kick, Sherida Spitse is over it, but she lays it off for Lineth Beerensteyn to take it into the corner.

    "No foul, no foul, no foul," screams the assistant referee.

    Faye White

    It's been a frustrating afternoon for Italy but they can be proud of their showing at the World Cup.

  12. 'Game management'

    Rachel Brown-Finnis

    It's about game management for the Netherlands now and they have to be clever in avoiding injuries.

  13. Post update

    Italy 0-2 Netherlands

    Italy have the ball deep in their own corner.

    Not where they need it.

  14. INJURY TIME

    Italy 0-2 Netherlands

    Into added time.

    Five more minutes to be played.

    Five for Netherlands to enjoy and Italy to endure.

    Very poor from Manuela Giugliano, curled straight into the hands of goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal.
