England Women vs Sweden Women Match Preview
Third place play-offs are becoming regular events for England teams and Phil Neville’s side are trying to claim the bronze medal in Nice just as they did in Canada four years ago.
Twelve months ago, the Three Lions finished fourth in Russia but went one better at the recent Nations League finals, albeit Gareth Southgate’s side needed a penalty shootout to get the better of Switzerland.
Now it’s Sweden who stand in the way of the Lionesses equalling their best World Cup achievement, with England having lost 2-1 to the United States on Tuesday after captain Steph Houghton missed a penalty that may well have forced extra time.
Sweden, meanwhile, did take the Netherlands to an additional half hour but then lost to a Jackie Groenen goal and, having also looked to tire in the later stages of that match, they find themselves with the quicker turnaround here.
Of course, motivation, in the knowledge that the biggest prize has gone, is a major factor in this game which could be either a pressure-free thriller or a yawn-inducing borefest.
England are without suspended Millie Bright after her late sending-off against the USA and with Sweden having only narrowly missed out on the final themselves, there could be some value in them holding out at the very least for 90 minutes provided they are fresh enough.
