In a thrilling start to their Euro 2025 qualifying campaign, England‘s women secured a vital victory against Sweden at Wembley. The lone goal, scored by Alessia Russo from a brilliant assist by Lauren James, proved to be the difference in a closely contested match. Despite Sweden’s dominance in spells, Sarina Wiegman‘s side showed resilience to start the campaign on a winning note.

The first half saw both teams creating chances, with Sweden looking dangerous on the counterattack. However, England managed to weather the storm and took the lead through Russo’s well-timed header. The goal injected confidence into the Lionesses, setting them up for a solid defensive display in the second half.

Sweden, who finished third in the recent World Cup, posed a constant threat with their attacking prowess. Players like Rolfo and Asllani tested England’s defense but were unable to breach it. The match showcased the determination and tactical discipline of both teams, highlighting the high stakes of Euro qualifying.

England’s captain Keira Walsh led by example, marshaling the midfield and providing stability to the team throughout the game. The return of Leah Williamson, albeit from the bench, added a sense of experience and leadership to the squad, signaling the depth of talent available to Wiegman for the upcoming challenges.

As the defending champions of Euro 2022, England are keen on a successful title defense, knowing fully well the competition they face in groups including France and the Republic of Ireland. The road to Basil promises to be tough, but with performances like the one against Sweden, the Lionesses are showing their determination to retain their European crown.
