Why can Switzerland win Women's EURO 2022?

Switzerland winning would definitely be a shock, but coach Nils Nielsen has a track record when it comes to springing a surprise with a team considered underdogs – he took Denmark to the final in 2017, defeating heavyweights Germany along the way. With a healthy mix of youth and experience, who can say what is to come?

My favourite Women's EURO memory

2017 highlights: Iceland 1-2 Switzerland

Switzerland's 2-1 win against Iceland on the second matchday in 2017 – their one and only victory at a final tournament so far. I'm looking forward to seeing more this summer, hopefully!

Did you know? 

When Ana-Maria Crnogorčević first started playing football, her father didn't want her to. Her mother signed her up anyway and her father only found out a few weeks later when he spotted her boots. She now is her country's all-time top scorer.
