England will face Spain at the Amex Stadium in the Women’s Euro 2022 quarter-finals; kick-off 8pm; it is unclear if Sarina Wiegman will be in the dugout after missing the final England group game due to Covid; Spain have been knocked out in the quarter-finals in their last two Euros.
England face their toughest test yet as they take on Spain in the quarter-finals of Euro 2022 on Wednesday, although neither side have had the smoothest of preparations.
The UK has been hit by an unprecedented heatwave that has seen temperatures reach over 40 degrees, while head coach Sarina Wiegman has not been around the squad after testing positive for Covid-19.
While temperatures are set to drop significantly by the time the two teams walk out at the Amex Stadium at 8pm on Wednesday evening, it has seen England alter their training times and implement additional cooling measures to keep the players in good shape.
While Spain will be used to the heat and humidity, they have also not had the ideal tournament so far. Just days before their opening match against Finland, Alexia Putellas was sidelined with an ACL injury, adding to the already absent Jennifer Hermoso.
The omission of their top two goalscorers has shown at times for Spain in the group stages, who are looking to progress to the semi-finals after being knocked out in the quarters at the last two tournaments.
