We are now in the third week of competition! This Wednesday night will see the start of the Women's Euro in Old Trafford. The competition appears to be very open three years after the 2019 World Cup was won in France by the United States.
It is clear that the Lionesses will be attempting to shine before their audience. England is often ranked but has never been titled at the Euro or in the World Cup. This year's competition appears to be a cut above the semi-finalists from the last World Cup. Only the Norway of Lyonnaise Ada Hegerberg (Ballon d'or 2018), can pose a threat to England in Group A, where Austria and Northern Ireland are not a major danger.
The English, however, are supported by their public and players who have made great progress in a national championship, and can dream of reaching the final at Wembley. This team, which had beaten the Netherlands 5-1 ten days earlier, is in excellent form.
The Lionesses have everything they need to achieve this feat, from Lucy Bronze, a Barca defender, to Ellen White, a Manchester City star striker, and all the way to Ellen White, a Manchester City soccer star.
The English will face a team of Group B players, which includes Spain and Germany. These two teams have opposite dynamics. The Nationalmannschaft, twice world champions and Euro specialists with not less than eight continental titles has remained sceptical about the World Cup-2019. Sweden eliminated them in the quarter-finals.
He will likely have to battle hard with a Roja who is making great progress in order to win the first place in this pool. This pool will see Denmark and Finland as outsiders.
Two teams appear to be destined for the quarterfinals in Pool C. The Dutch, who were the finalist in the 2017 World Cup and are the holders of the European title following their victory at home in 2017, are naturally eligible for their succession. The Netherlands will face stiff competition from Sweden, who won the Euro in 1984.
Portugal and Switzerland were both called in the last minute to support the expulsion of Russia following the invasion of Ukraine.
The Bleues were placed in the group of Italy Belgium, Iceland and Switzerland. However, they will be competing against three other teams on paper.
Les Bleues arrived in England Tuesday
After two warm-up matches in which they beat Cameroon (4-0), and Vietnam (7-0), Les Bleues are now ready to tackle the tournament as the eternal candidate for victory... but without ever winning the Grail at the Olympics or at the World Cup.
This edition could be the crowning of a new generation, as Lyonnaise Wendie (31 years old) is a player who, even though she hasn't won any selections, still remains one of the most successful in club history with 32 trophies under the banner of OL.
