Goals were rare in England’s Euro 2022 opener against Austria on Wednesday, but that may not be the case when the Lionesses take on Norway at Brighton in their second group assignment .
England showed some curtain-raising nerves in a jam-packed Old Trafford but still scored three points thanks to Beth Mead’s lobbed effort after 16 minutes.
And now that they have a win on the board, Sarina Wiegman’s side are set to play a bigger game against Norway in a game that should decide Group A top spot.
Despite only winning 1-0 against the Austrians, England managed 15 shots in the game and there are several dangerous attacking combinations Wiegman could select for the Amex clash.
With Lauren Hemp, Ellen White, Alessia Russo, Ella Toone and Mead among the attacking stars at Wiegman’s disposal, England are more than capable of racking up the goals and their depth in the final third puts pressure on starters to that they are efficient.
In their three pre-tournament friendlies, they scored a total of 12 goals in matches against Belgium (3-0), the Netherlands (5-1) and Switzerland (4-0).
Norway didn’t hold back in their opener against Major debutants Northern Ireland, establishing a 3-0 advantage after just 31 minutes before winning 4-1.
They managed 11 shots on target in their opener at St Mary’s and offered plenty of pace in attack with Chelsea’s Amalie Eikeland and Guro Reiten flanking former Ballon d’Or winner Ada Hegerberg, who effectively found some space behind the Northern Irish rearguard.
Norway have scored 34 goals in six appearances in Euro 2022 qualifying and both teams have scored in four of their last five appearances in all competitions.
At a shadow of odds, it looks like a great bet for what should be the Group A tie on the South Coast.
Semi-finalists on their tournament debut at Euro 2017, Austria arguably have an even stronger side in this year’s European Championship and they held their own against England in the opener. tournament.
Arsenal goalkeeper Manuela Zinsberger has made a switch between the sticks and it’s a tough team to break, which could be bad news for struggling Northern Ireland.
The Green and White Army showed their inexperience against Norway and would need to record back-to-back defeats with bookies pricing them at 16-1 to win this contest.
Austria came top when these sides met as recently as April’s World Cup qualifiers, winning 3-1, and a bet on the Austrians giving up a goal on the handicap could be the way to go. follow.
The bet is a winner if Austria win by two or more goals, which they have done in six of their last nine games.
