Switzerland v Netherlands: Women’s Euro 2022 – live!

Read Time:2 Minute, 5 Second

The Guardian

Key events:

If, before Group C got going, you’d been told that before their final game, Switzerland would have the fear, you’d probably have assumed that they were contemplating what a rampant Netherlands might do to them. But as Lock Stock’s Soap advised us, making assumptions is a fool’s errand, and he was’t even talking about football.

In their first game against Portugal, La Nati were two-up inside five minutes, only to concede two in seven minutes either side of the hour; then in their second against Sweden, they equalised two minutes after going behind only to allow a late winner 11 minutes from time; so instead, they’re contemplating an early trip home that they needn’t have made, needing a win here to even have a chance to reaching the quarter-finals.

Netherlands, meanwhile, might have expected to be through already, but they are not. A point will be enough, but they’ll want to win the group to set up a last-eight meeting with Iceland, Belgium or Italy, rather than France.

We’ll talk about the specifics of the match-up in due course, but to being with, here is our housekeeping:

  • If Switzerland win here, they go through if Sweden avoid defeat against Portugal, finishing above the Netherlands on head-to-head. If both Switzerland and Portugal win, all four teams will have four points so the group will be decided on goal difference, then goals scored, then disciplinary rankings, then Uefa’s association coefficient; the order is Sweden, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland.
  • Netherlands are through if they avoid defeat. If they and Sweden both win or draw, which of them top the group will be decided on goal difference, then goals scored, then disciplinary rankings, then coefficient.
  • Sweden are through if they avoid defeat against Portugal. If they are level with Netherlands, which of them top the group will be decided on goal difference, then goals scored, then disciplinary rankings, then coefficient.
  • Portugal must beat Sweden and hope Netherland avoid defeat against Switzerland; they would then finish above Sweden on head-to-head. If Portugal and Switzerland win, all four teams will have four points so the group will be decided on goal difference, then goals scored, then disciplinary rankings, then coefficient.
