England vs Austria: Women’s Euro 2022 preview

Sarina Wiegman’s side are one of the tournament favourites and head into the finals off the back of six consecutive wins.

The Lionesses’ form under her watch has been hugely impressive. Unbeaten in their last 14 games and having scored 84 goals in the process, it is remarkable to think the England boss still has selection headaches to work through.

Up first in their quest to win the Euros on home soil is Austria, semi-finalists five years ago as Wiegman’s Netherlands side conquered the continent.

Their camp is confident the current team is better than in 2017 and they arrive in Manchester looking to spoil the party.
