The first semi-final of the Women’s Euro pits England against Sweden. Host of the competition, the English team appears in the position of favorite. But the Swedes accustomed to major events and already crowned in the competition could bring their experience into play.
Ballotted by Spain for 70 minutes in the quarterfinals, England ended up winning and winning their ticket for the next round of the Euro. Facing Sweden, world number 2 in the FIFA rankings, and in front of the 30,000 spectators who will fill the Sheffield stadium on Tuesday July 26, the “Lionesses” will be carried by an entire country.
After a thunderous group stage with three wins and 14 goals scored, without conceding a single one, Sarina Wiegman’s players are the favorites. The Swedes remain an enigma in this tournament. If they are able to develop a good game, their lack of realism could cost dearly against England.
