England remain perfect while Austria join the Lionesses in the Euro 2022 quarter-finals

Hosts England were warming up for the Euro 2022 quarter-finals with another demolition job as Northern Ireland were swept aside 5-0.

They are joined by Austria, who stunned two-time winners Norway to end their participation in the tournament before the knockout stages.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look at how another big day at the finals has unfolded.

It took the hosts 41 minutes to show the pressure at St Mary’s but when they did, they did so to devastating effect.

Kenny Shiels’ side were injured four times in the space of 12 minutes on either side of the break, as Fran Kirby, Beth Mead and substitute Alessio Russo scored – twice.

Kelsie Burrows’ own goal completed the goal as the hosts, who had already secured their passage, came home in impressive style.

Northern Ireland had already been eliminated from the competition.

Billa the child

Austria picked the perfect moment to claim their first win against Norway and knock them out of the tournament.

Hoffenheim striker Nicole Billa’s first-half header was enough to secure a 1-0 win at the Amex Stadium on a night when a draw on goal difference would have sufficed to see them through.

In truth, it wasn’t any more than they deserved as the Norwegians, who won the tournament in 1987 and 1993, just didn’t show up to the death by which time it was too late.

Austria’s reward is a tough round of 16 against neighbor Germany, who have won the competition no fewer than eight times.

Sarina was eliminated

Sarina Wiegman extended her unbeaten run as England head coach to 17 games as her side clinched victory against Northern Ireland, but she was left to witness the events at St Mary’s from afar.

The Football Association announced hours before kick-off that Wiegman had tested positive for Covid-19 and was consequently recovering back at base camp, with assistant Arjan Veurink temporarily taking the reins.

An FA spokesman said: “Wiegman will remain in remote contact with the players and technical staff and will be monitored regularly to return to all elements of their role as soon as possible.”

The England manager now faces a race against time to return to the bench for Wednesday’s round of 16 against Spain or Denmark.
