Jovana Damnjanovic pulled one back for Sand in the 78th minute just after Wolfsburg's Alexandra Popp was sent off, as all three goals were scored in a frenetic 12-minute period.

The Bundesliga champions ended the game with nine players after Sara Björk Gunnarsdottir also received her marching orders in injury time.



Van Egmond scored four goals in eight league appearances for Wolfsburg this season and featured five times in cup games.

For Wolfsburg, the silverware was the perfect parting gift for veteran Ralf Kellermann, who after nine titles in the past five years will be taking up a the role of sporting director for  the VfL Wolfsburg women’s side.
