Live commentary Sweden – Belgium (EM Women 2022 England, Quarterfinals)


Both teams will probably start in a 4-3-3 formation. For the Swedes, Angeldal, Asllani and Björn act in central midfield behind Rytting Kaneryd, Blackstenius and Rolfö. In Belgium, captain Wullaert, De Caigny and Cayman form the offensive line.


The two national teams last met in the 2009 European Championship qualifier. At that time, the Scandinavians prevailed twice. The current number two in the FIFA world rankings is the favorite to go into the game again today.


The Swedish team made it through to the quarter-finals undefeated and, as group winners, also left the strong Dutch team behind thanks to the better goal difference. Last Sunday, the Swedes beat Portugal 5-0 and made the group victory perfect. Angeldal scored twice and was the outstanding player. In addition, Asllani and Blackstenius met. Costa scored into his own goal for Portugal.


Tinne De Caigny from TSG Hoffenheim ensured the acclaimed entry into the quarter-finals as a match winner in the decisive match between the Belgians and Italy. The 25-year-old scored the only goal of the game in Ives Serneels’ side in a 1-0 win to put the Italians out of the tournament. Belgium took second place in Group D and sealed the first entry for Belgian women at a European Championship.


Good evening and welcome to Manchester’s Leigh Sports Village Stadium for the European Women’s Football Championship and quarter-final between Sweden and Belgium. It starts at 9 p.m.
