Hosts England win Euro 2020 opening game against Austria

Beth Mead celebrates her goal to make it 1-0 for England against Austria

Successful start for the hosts of the European Championship 2022: In the sold-out Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, England narrowly beat Austria.

Hosts England started the European Championship with a deserved victory. The team of Dutch coach Sarina Wiegman won their first game in Group A against Austria 1-0 (1-0). 68,800 spectators in the sold-out Old Trafford stadium in Manchester celebrated the “Lionesses” (lionesses) at the end but otherwise remained surprisingly calm. The goal of the day was scored by Arsenal’s Beth Mead in the 17th minute. England confirmed their position as tournament favorites and are now unbeaten in 15 games.

Goal-line technology showed: that the ball was in

When the two European Championship semi-finalists from 2017 met, the Austrians quickly faced the onslaught of the English. Carina Wenninger initially saved on the goal line at the opening goal. But VAR technology showed the ball was in. England’s left-winger Lauren Hemp from Manchester City, in particular, put a lot of pressure on, but there were few clear chances to score. In the Austrian team, seven Bundesliga professionals were in the starting XI. Lisa Kolb from SC Freiburg, who was suffering from Corona, and Maria Plattner from Turbine Potsdam, who had a shoulder injury, could not play.
