[EURO 2013] Germany captured its sixth straight European Women's Championship title with a 1-0 win over Norway Sunday before a tournament record crowd of 41,301 in Stockholm. Anja Mittag had the game's lone goal, but the German hero was Nadine Angerer, the oldest player on the German team at the age of 34. The keeper saved penalty kicks by Trine Ronning and Solveig Gulbrandsen.

Mittag, who had come on at halftime, scored in the 49th minute on a pass from Okoyino da Mbabi.

Angerer, a member of five European title teams, said the final left her exhausted, but Germany coach Silvia Neid praised the 28-year-old keeper for her work in the offseason to improve her fitness.

"I met Nadine Angerer in November and we had a long conversation," Neid said. "We said that fitness is important if you want to be a good goalkeeper and we both agreed on that. We met in February and she had worked hard during the winter break. You could see that she was much better when it came to her ability to jump and physical flexibility. This tournament and this match are the reward for the hard work she did during the winter break."

Heading into 2015 World Cup qualifying, Germany has a bright future. Neid brought 11 players 22 years old or younger to Sweden, and Jennifer Cramer, 21, Dzsenifer Marozsan, 21, and Lena Lotzen, 19, started in the final.
