Is England vs Sweden on TV? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch the Euro 2022 semi-finals tonight

England await as the Lionesses are just two wins away from lifting their first-ever major tournament trophy, with Sweden being their Euro 2022 semi-final opponents at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night (kick-off 8pm BST).

England swept through the group stage, netting a record 14 non-response goals against Austria, Norway and Northern Ireland, but came dangerously close to leaving their home tournament in the quarter-finals when they trailed 1-0 to Spain six minutes ahead of Ella Toone, who were dramatically equalized and Georgia Stanway’s impressive goal secured a 2-1 overtime win.

The Lionesses are roared on by another sold-out home crowd, but their record semi-finals at major tournaments does not bode well – defeats at the 1987, 1995 and 2013 European Championships combined with defeats at the 2015 and 2019 World Cups for a record five losses to just two wins (EM 1984 and 2009). However, right-back Lucy Bronze is confident things will be different this time.

“It’s a huge opportunity,” said Bronze. “I’m lucky to have experienced semi-finals and unlucky to have experienced defeat. So far it’s been a bit different than previous tournaments, but psychologically we’ve always been ready to be at the top. A lot of players are now more used than ever to being on winning teams.” Here’s everything you need to know:

What’s new from the team?

England have so far named an unchanged line-up for every Euro 2022 game and with no injury worries, Sarina Wiegman has the opportunity to do so again. Alessia Russo and Ella Toone have impressed repeatedly from the bench and could theoretically start ahead of Ellen White and Fran Kirby respectively, while left-back Rachel Daly had a hot period against Spain meaning Alex Greenwood could start ahead of her but Wiegman is the most likely to stay with the XI that got them this far – and allow the substitutes to continue influencing games off the bench.

Sweden’s troubles mostly revolve around Covid-19, with Hanna Glas, Emma Kullberg and Jonna Andersson missing out on the quarter-final win over Belgium after testing positive. Provided the trio are available, Glas and Andersson are likely to start as the two full-backs, but the rest of the team should remain unchanged, including a front three from Johanna Rytting Kaneryd, Fridolina Rolfo and Stina Blackstenius, although Rolfo is struggling to follow procedure affect the Red Flames.

Expected Lineups

England XI: ears; Bronze, Hell, Williamson, Daly; Walsh, Stanway; Kirby; hemp, white, mead

Sweden XI: Lindahl; Glas, Ilestedt, Eriksson, Andersson; Angeldahl, Asllani, Bjorn; Rytting Kaneryd, Rolfo, Blackstenius

forecast

England’s semi-final record at major tournaments is questionable but in Wiegman they have the ultimate tournament manager and this is a side brimming with confidence and confidence. The Lionesses are a better team than Sweden and should be able to get the job done. England 3-1 Sweden
