Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses defeated the highest ranked team in the tournament and the second best team in the world in what turned out to be a 4-0 thrashing in last night’s (Tuesday 26 July) semi-final.
Sweden were to be the toughest team England had faced so far in this tournament, but after the grittyness of pulling through against Spain, England fans were hopeful.
Little did they anticipate that their heroines would complete the deal in such style.
After a nervy start which saw Sweden have a chance at goal after just 24 seconds, England finally settled into the match and Beth Mead scored her sixth goal in this tournament in the 34th minute to give the Lionesses the much needed boost they needed.
England were then on fire and the second half saw goals from Lucy Bronze, Alessio Russo and Fran Kirby boost the scoreline 4-0 by the end and send England comfortably through this weekend’s final.
Now the Lionesses will prepare for their third ever Euros final as they take on their latest opponent on Sunday.

Who will England play in the final?
The Lionesses will face Germany on Sunday, after the latter defeated France 2-1 in their semi-final at Stadium MK.
Despite being without key forward Klara Buhl, who missed the game due to a positive Covid-19 test, the Germans sealed their progression to the final with a spirited display against the French.
Alexandra Popp opened the scoring for her side in the 40th minute, smashing a powerful volley into the roof of the net from ten yards out.
France hit back just before half-time, as Kadidiatou Diani’s rifled effort from the edge of the area crashed off the post and struck the sprawling goalkeeper Merle Frohms in the back, before bobbling over the line.
An intense second half saw big chances for both sides, but it was Popp who had the final say, outmuscling opposition headers to thunder a winning header past Frohms.
What is Germany’s record like in the Euros?
Germany are the most successful side at the Women’s Euros tournament having won the competition eight times.
They first won in 1989, beating Norway in the final and then went on to win seven out of the next eight tournaments.
England and Germany have played each other nine times in recent history with Germany winning on five occasions.
However, England won the most recent fixture which took place at the Arnold Clark Cup 3-1.
