[EURO 2013] The UEFA Women's Championship came to life Friday as France, one of the favorites, beat Russia, 3-1, and Spain defeated England, 3-2, in a dramatic match. Alexia Putellas' header in stoppage time capped a wild finish in Linkoping, where Spain went ahead with five minute to play on a goal by Jennifer Hermoso only for England to equalize for a second time on a Laura Bassett goal.

Former WPS players Veronica Boquete and Eniola Aluko had earlier scored for Spain and England.

"They knocked us out of Euro [2009 qualifying] and the last World Cup and we wanted revenge," said Boquete, who now plays in Sweden for Tyresö, where her housemates are Hermoso and U.S. star Christen Press. "Luckily, we had that final chance and we are happy with these three points."

-- Marie-Laure Delie scored two goals and Eugenie Le Sommer added a third goal as France coasted to a win over Russia, which was gifted a late goal by Elena Morozova goal.
