Reigning champions Netherlands kickstarted their Euro 2022 campaign with a disappointing opening-day draw to Sweden at Bramall Lane, though head coach Mark Parsons will take some encouragement after his side battled back from going a goal down to collect what could prove an invaluable point.
Former Chelsea defender Jonna Andersson broke the deadlock in Sheffield for Sweden, before Jill Roord stepped up to bag an equalising goal for Leeuwinnen. That stalemate gives Group C a very even feel, with each nation currently sitting on a point apiece after Portugal also drew with Switzerland.
Nils Nielsen’s La Nati raced to a 2-0 lead after only five minutes through goals from Coumba Sow and Rahel Kiwic, but Portugal demonstrated their defiance to bounce back with a second-half flurry, reducing the deficit through Diana Gomes before restoring parity after Jessica Silva notched in the 65th minute.

Vivianne Miedema is the talismanic force for the Netherlands and she will be hoping to open her Euro 2022 account here after firing a blank against Sweden. The Arsenal sharpshooter was atypically quiet in Sheffield, but as her nation’s record scorer, notching 92 international goals during a mightily prolific career, she will feel confident of getting the job done on Wednesday. Miedema entered this tournament having finished second in the 2021/22 Women’s Super League scoring charts and first in the assists charts, so expect her to be involved in some goalmouth action, whether as the protagonist or the provider.
