The match was also streamed 8.9 million times across BBC iPlayer, the BBC Sport website and app and there was an average match audience of 13.6 million, resulting in a 77 % share. The expectation and build up to the game pulled in a huge audience on the BBC Sport website with 10.5 million visitors throughout the day, and 5.3 million following the match online with the page being viewed 16.6 million times during the nail-biting game.

Fans can enjoy all the coverage from right across the tournament so far on iPlayer with TV highlights and digital clips on the BBC Sport website and social platforms.
