ENGLAND fans have started to arrive at the Amex stadium as the Lionesses battle for a place in the Euro 2022 semi-finals.
Among the fans who came to Falmer for today’s game was Raffaella, who brought a homemade sign for Lucy Bronze to the game.
The game will be the last to be played at the city’s stadium. Almost 29,000 spectators turned out to see England beat Norway 8-0 in a group stage game last Monday.
Sarina Wiegman’s side, who have scored 14 goals in their three group games, will take on the Spanish side, one place above them by FIFA, as they continue their quest for glory and win at the tournament for the first time.
England captain Leah Williamson has insisted the Lionesses enjoy the challenge of tonight’s winner-take-all duel.
She said: “Obviously it’s knockout football, the game changes as soon as you get through the group, the nature of the game is different. There will be a winner and that’s it.
“We know the situation, but we see it as an opportunity and are confident.
“We’re in good shape and hopefully we can do what we’ve done in this tournament tonight.”
Kick-off for the England v Spain game is at 8pm, with the game being streamed live on BBC One. The Argus will also be broadcasting live updates from tonight’s game at the Amex later in the evening.
