Match preview

England welcomes Sweden to Bramall Lane in Sheffield on Tuesday for this UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 match.

After eliminating pre-tournament favourites Spain on Wednesday evening, the odds of favourites and hosts England were halved for them to win Euro 2022. Before kick-off, they were 3/1 to win their first major trophy for the women’s national team. However, those odds currently stand at 6/4 to lift the trophy at the end of July at Wembley.

Euro 2022 Winner Tip of the Day

England as Outright Winner of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 at odds of 6/4.

England are on home soil and have been the best team in the tournament!

England have had recent success in minor trophies such as winning the 2019 SheBelieves Cup as well as the 2022 Arnold Clark Cup, which was also held in England back in February 2022. This set them up for a strong showing at this tournament which they have been the runaway top goalscorers. They aren’t throwing players forward with reckless abandon either, in fact Spain’s 54th-minute goal to open the scoring on Wednesday was the first they have conceded in the tournament.

Winning when not playing well is essential for every side in a major tournament. You can’t expect to blow every team away, so finding a way to stay in the game and take the one chance that comes your way is crucial to surviving in knockout football. This was the case against Spain, who dominated almost the entire match. England didn’t have a shot until the 40th minute of the match and didn’t create a “big chance” until the 84th minute. Thankfully, when it came, Ella Toone put it away to make Spain’s dominance of the previous 83 minutes count for nothing.

In extra time, Spain had five shots and failed to find the target. England had just one, which Georgia Stanway made count to put her country through to the semis.

Of course, England do not own a monopoly on resilience. This Sweden side are famously tough to beat and are on a ridiculous unbeaten run now of 34 games stretching back to 2020. Which makes their odds of 11/2 to win the tournament a very tempting bet.

All records exist to be broken. We have seen with every great team in the past on huge winning and undefeated runs that it eventually had to come to an end somewhere. England will believe as the form side with home advantage, they will be the team to finally beat the Swedes.

Alessia Russo as England’s Goalscorer Tip

While Bethany Mead is the tournament’s top scorer with five goals so far, Alessia Russo has the better record in terms of minutes per goal with just 55 minutes on the pitch for each of the three goals she has scored compared to Mead’s 60 minutes. After her game-rescuing cameo on Wednesday, she is expected to start here and is the pre-match favourite to get on the scoresheet. The Manchester United forward has seven goals in eleven caps for her country and is 4/1 to score the game’s opener on Tuesday. Or 6/4 to bag a goal at any time during the game against Sweden.

Goalscorer Tip of the Day

England vs Sweden: Alessia Russo to score the first OR last goal of the game at odds of 21/10.

Alessia Russo has the best minutes per goal record for England with a goal every 55 minutes.

At 21/10, a £10 bet would return £31.

England team news

It was the substitutes who dug England out of a hole against Spain last Wednesday evening. Ella Toone stepped off the bench to score the equaliser six minutes from time.

Alessia Russo was the player who assisted her goal. Russo, having scored three goals in the competition so far, was a surprise exclusion from the starting eleven against the Spaniard. Will Toone or Russo have done enough to force their way into the starting plans?

Sweden team news

Olivia Schough of Rosengård is still waiting for the last cap needed for a century in international football for Sweden. The 31-year-old winger was an unused substitute against Belgium. Teammate Nathalie Björn of Everton did start against Belgium though picking up her landmark half-century in international football. The 25-year-old has started every match so far in the tournament and is expected to do so against England on Tuesday.

Sweden may rotate a little for fresh legs here. Ten of the players who started their quarter-final match played the 90 minutes plus injury time. The only exception was Filippa Angeldahl, who only came off in the 84th minute.
