The UK rail industry is really getting behind the England Football women’s team as the Lionesses take on Sweden in a semi-final of the UEFA Women’s European Championship

At 20:00 tonight (26 July 2022), England meet Sweden at Bramall Lane, Sheffield, for their seventh meeting in the history of the championship. Sweden have prevailed six times, but England are sure their time for success has come.

Sarina Wiegman.

England coach Sarina Wiegman is well aware that beating Sweden will be a challenge. “I think it is going to be a really tight game,” she said. “They have performed really well in the previous years and they have always performed well in the women’s game. They are number two in the FIFA ranking so it is going to be a difficult game and totally different to what we faced against Spain because they have a totally different style of play, but we are prepared.”

Beth Mead.

Championship top scorer Beth Mead, who has scored five goals so far in the competition, added: “Every game right now is tough and it’s the semi-final of a EUROs.

“Maybe Sweden haven’t been at their best, but every time we play them, they play pretty good and they’re an athletic team with a lot of quality players.

“So, they’re not a team we will take lightly and we’re looking forward to the challenge.”
