"We wanted to win ground for women's football and we have."

Stockholm hosted the final of the UEFA Women's Football Championships on Sunday, with over 41,000 in the stadium to watch Germany beat Norway one nil.

It was an attendance record for the championships, which have been seen by many here in Sweden as a success. TV viewing figures have been high and many stadiums hosting the games around the country were sold-out.

Göran Havik of the Swedish Football Association was the tournament director. He tells Radio Sweden: "It was a great tournament... We wanted to win ground for women's football and we have...I think we've smashed all records there are to break."

He added that the atmosphere in the stadiums throughout the championships has been very positive.
