How did Spain get to the quarter-finals of the European Championship?
Spain’s route to the quarter-finals was not without obstacles. A goal against Finland in record EURO time was just a stumbling block. There was no comeback after the early goal in the second game against Germany, although the Spaniards scored four goals – three of them from open play.
The first setback came before a ball was even played, because alongside Jenni Hermoso, Alexia Putellas also had to stay home injured. Without these two players, the team’s power is inevitably limited. While coach Jorge Vilda kept changing his side in search of a solution, Spain kept playing their game – and were rewarded in the decisive match against Denmark with a goal from substitute Marta Cardona.
Group B runners-up
Spain 4-1 Finland (Milton Keynes) – Paredes 26, Bonmatí 41, Lucía García 75, Caldentey 90+5E; Salstrom 1
Germany 2-0 Spain (London) – Bühl 3, Popp 37
Denmark 0-1 Spain (London) – Cardona 90
How did England get to the quarter-finals?
A record 14 goals without conceding in the group stage is quite an achievement from this English side. One can imagine that Sarina Wiegman will not complain, but one also senses that she will ask for more. Tougher tests lie ahead but the chants of ‘It’s Coming Home’ chanted at St Mary’s after the game against Northern Ireland show the nation is full of anticipation and this side have so far shown they can cope with the can handle pressure.
The football we’ve seen so far hasn’t just been ‘out of the box’, it’s been dominant, stylish and energetic. Let’s hope the knockout stage goes similarly.

England 1-0 Austria (Old Trafford) – Mead 16
England 8-0 Norway (Brighton & Hove) – Stanway 12pen, Hemp 15, White 29 41, Mead 34 38 81, Russo 66

Who will win the European Women’s Football Championship?
2 more games for the final teams, then it’s about the crown of women’s football in 2022. According to the FIFA world rankings, the Swedes are in second place, followed by France, the Netherlands and Germany. However, the tournament showed that England, Germany and France are among the best teams at the moment. These three teams should probably figure it out among themselves.
