Euro 2022 is well underway with hosts England getting off to a winning start by beating Austria 1-0 on Wednesday.
Delayed from 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic and the re-scheduled Men’s Euro 2020 tournament, the 13th edition of the UEFA Women’s European Championship will see the continent’s 16 best international sides battle it out to become the champions throughout July.
The Netherlands are the defending champions, although England, Norway, France, Sweden, Germany and Spain are also set to be serious contenders in a wide-open tournament.

How are England performing?
England got off to a winning start by beating Austria 1-0 in the opening game of Euro 2022. In front of a record Women’s European Championship crowd of 68,871, Beth Mead scored the decisive goal to send the hosts onto, what they hope, will be a winning streak that stretches to the final.
The Lionesses were far from their best, but manager Sarina Wiegman was happy with the victory and described the atmosphere as “incredible”.

Should they top their group and go all the way to the final, England will play their quarter-final on July 20, their semi-final on July 26 and the final on July 31.
What happened to Alexia Putellas?
Spain are one of the favourites for the tournament, but were dealt a blow on the eve of Euro 2022 when captain Alexia Putellas twisted her knee during training and suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.
The Ballon d’Or winner was set to be one of the stars of Euro 2022, having inspired Barcelona to the Champions League win last year and an unbeaten league campaign last season.
