Here’s how the England women’s football team fares in the quarter-finals of the European Championship. Britain beat Norway with goal after goal. In the end, a new record was set at 8:0. The DFB women looked good and they could be the opponents of goal-hungry opponents in the quarter-finals.
With the biggest win in the history of the European Championship, England’s footballers went into the field ahead of the quarter-finals. National coach Sarina Wiegmann’s Lions impressively confirmed their title ambitions with a 8-0 (6-0) thrashing of former world champions Norway. On Friday, the hosts can crown a strong group stage against Northern Ireland.
In the quarter-finals, England are a possible opponent for Germany – provided they finish second in Group B. Tuesday’s (9pm) clash of the German Football Association (DFB) selection against Spain is of great importance.
England gave Norway no chance on Monday. Georgia Stanway (12th), with a converted penalty kick, Lauren Hemp (16th, via video evidence), Ellen White (29th, 41st) and Beth Mead (34th, 38th) provided clear terms before the break. By comparison: England’s 6-0 European Championship win over Scotland in 2017, five years after Alessia Russo (66th) and Meade (81st) produced a record second-round finish.
Austria and Norway in direct combat
Austria benefited from a clear English win, moving up to second in the group. National coach Irene Fuhrmann’s team had a 2-0 (1-0) win over European Championship openers Northern Ireland and are now ahead of Norway on better goal difference. The two teams will fight for the second quarter-final ticket on Friday (9pm).
Werder Bremen’s Katharina Scheigtl (19th) gave Austria the lead. Just before the end, Katarina Naschenweng (88th), active at Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim, stepped up after a strong solo.
