England - Spain: Women’s Euro 2022 quarterfinal, times, TV and how to watch online
All the information you need on how and where to watch England take on Spain in the first quarterfinal at Euro 2022 in the Amex Stadium on 20 July.
Hosts England face Spain in the first quarterfinal match-up of Euro 2020. The game is being staged at the Amex Stadium in Brighton, home to Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion where the Lionesses thrashed Norway 8-0 in the group stage. Sarina Wiegman’s side cruised through the preliminary rounds, scoring 14 times without reply as the in-form Beth Mead helped herself to five.
As such, England have emerged as one of the tournament favourites, a status enhanced by the struggles of the Netherlands under new coach Mark Parsons, France’s internal issues and 2017 runners-up Denmark’s failure to get out Group C alongside Spain.
Spain struggling without Putellas and Hermoso
Jorge Vilda’s La Roja have hardly set out their own stall at the tournament so far. A 4-1 victory over Finland was followed by a 2-0 defeat against Germany and a place in the last eight was secured on the final day of group action when Denmark were seen off 1-0. Spain are without top scorer Jenni Hermoso and Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas in England and have so far relied on their ability to retain the ball – mirroring the tiki-taka employed by their male colleagues during their pomp and the individual skill of Aitana Bonmatí – player of the match twice in the group stage - and Patri Guijarro in midfield, ahead of a solid defensive base and with some trickery on the wings from Sheila García and Mariona Caldentey.
Vilda has a strong bench, with the likes of Clàudia Pina and Athenea del Castillo providing additional attacking verve, but what Spain lack is a true goalscorer. Athletic’s Lucía García has been leading the line but has not found the net since the Finland win and it was left to Marta Cardona to provide a 90th-minute winner against Denmark to see Spain into the quarters.
Given England’s scoring prowess, a boisterous home crowd and Spain’s occasional defensive lapses, La Roja will have to significantly up their game to make the semis at the expense of the hosts in Brighton.
