Euros’ big hitters win but Netherlands go Dutch – Women’s Football Weekly | Football

The 2022 Women’s Euros are well underway: the Netherlands and Spain shared the spoils in the most anticipated match of the tournament so far while underdogs Portugal showed potential to cause an upset in Group C, which is looking increasingly like the Group of Death.

Elsewhere, Spain came from behind to beat Finland after a Putellas pep talk and Germany are … quite good. We’re pretty sure Caroline Graham Hansen might still be nutmegging Danish players in Southampton.

We see another record broken – the biggest attendance at a Women’s Euros match not including a host nation – and almost as many goals scored in the first five minutes than in the entirety of Euro 2017!

The panel take a comprehensive look back at all the games from Groups A to C, look ahead to Group D and take your questions.

We’ll be back on Tuesday to see how those final group matches go – plus all the fallout from England’s second match of the tournament against Norway.
