It’s been a fine tournament for England Women so far, and they can match the Men’s team from last year by making the final of a European Championship at Wembley when they take on Sweden Women at the home of Sheffield United early next week, with South Yorkshire braced for an epic match-up.
Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses chose to do things the hard way on Wednesday night in Brighton, equalising against Spain with five minutes to spare to take their quarter-final clash to extra-time, with Georgia Stanway then bagging the match-winner in the 96th minute from range, sparking bedlam on the South Coast.
Sweden, likewise, chose to bring drama to their quarter-final tie, contesting in a gruelling 90 minutes with Belgium at the Leigh Sports Village, with their match looking destined for extra-time as well, before Linda Sembrant bagged in the 92nd minute and booked a semi-final ticket for Peter Gerhardsson’s Blagult.

England Women vs Sweden Women match stats
Beth Mead has been the star of England’s tournament so far, with the Arsenal forward currently leading the way in the ‘Golden Boot’ race for the Women’s Euro 2022 after bagging five goals — one ahead of Germany’s Alexandra Popp (four) — but it’s her playmaker exploits that earned her recognition at club level last season. The 27-year-old finished as the top assist provider in the 2021/22 FA Women’s Super League (eight), so Wiegman knows she has a prolific final-third force in her side who can either score or assist in the blink of an eye.
