Sarina Wiegman expected to return for England Euro 2022 quarter-final

England manager Sarina Wiegman is expected to be back on the touchline for the Three Lions’ Euro 2022 quarter-final against Spain after missing Northern Ireland win with Covid

  • England manager Sarina Wiegman should be back for Euro 2022 quarter-final
  • England host Spain on Wednesday as they continue bid to win the tournament
  • Wiegman missed England’s win over Northern Ireland after contracting Covid
  • England have scored 14 goals in three games in the tournament to date

England hope to have manager Sarina Wiegman back on the touchline for Wednesday’s Euro 2022 quarter-final against Spain after she tested positive for Covid-19 on Friday.

Wiegman’s condition was said to be much improved on Saturday and she was able to watch training at a distance, with a mask on.

Spain will provide England with their toughest test so far but strikers Lauren Hemp and Beth Mead should find joy in behind their defence’s high line.

Wiegman has led England to three victories from three so far but recently contracted Covid

Spain manager Jorge Vilda is without his best player, winger Alexia Putellas, and said: ‘I think it will be the toughest game in the Euros given the level England are playing at — and that they are the host nation, their fans are behind them — but that is something that motivates us.

‘We like a challenge.’

England have already scored 14 goals in the tournament in just three games, helped by the 8-0 demolition of Norway last Monday.

They are also yet to concede a goal, and are among the favourites to win the competition on home turf.
