[EURO 2013] The UEFA Women's Championship hasn't exactly started on a scintillating note. Germany had its 19-game winning streak in the tournament snapped as it played to a 0-0 tie with the Netherlands, and Iceland and Norway played to a 1-1 tie, leaving the tournament with four goals in its first four games, all draws.

The surprise of the German opener was how much pressure the Dutch put on the five-time defending champions.

"You have to give credit to the Dutch," German coach Silvia Neid said. "They played very cleverly and put a lot of pressure on our players. Sometimes our players took the wrong decisions, held on to the ball too long, received the ball when they were standing instead of taking it when moving, didn't shoot when they could have. These things, taken together, mean that we drew this game."

The Germans could have lost but for a couple of big saves from captain Nadine Angerer in goal.

-- In Thursday's other game, Margret Lara Vidarsdottir's late penalty gave Iceland a share of the points with Norway, which had led on a goal by Kristine Hegland.
