Women's EURO 2022 highlights: Sweden 2-1 Switzerland

Only a win will give Switzerland any chance of making it to the quarter-finals, and that will not be an easy challenge: they have yet to beat the Dutch in a competitive game, with the most recent of their two friendly successes coming in 2002 and an overall record of W2 D6 L16. The holders, meanwhile, need only draw to be sure of progressing but have been beset by bad luck at this tournament: illness in the camp as well as injuries to captain Sari van Veenendaal and (fit-again) Aniek Nouwen.

Starting line-ups

Switzerland: Thalmann; Maritz, Calligaris, Bühler, Aigbogun; Wälti, Maendly; Crnogorčević, Sow, Reuteler; Bachmann

Netherlands: Van Domselaar; Wilms, Van der Gragt, Nouwen, Janssen; Groenen, Roord, Spitse; Van de Donk, Beerensteyn, Martens

Reporters' views

Women's EURO 2022 team-mates: Switzerland

Judith Tuffentsammer, Switzerland reporter

Despite a good start against Portugal and a promising performance against Sweden, Switzerland are still without a win at this Women's EURO (or indeed in the whole of 2022). A victory seems overdue, but the Dutch are formidable opponents, and once more Switzerland will kick off as clear underdogs. A stomach bug has played havoc in the Swiss camp, but everyone should be fit for their third match, where an unexpected win could take them through.

Derek Brookman, Netherlands reporter

For the second match in a row, the Netherlands didn't produce consistently sparkling football against Portugal but earned an acceptable result. Daniëlle van de Donk's magnificent winner glossed a patchy performance, and Mark Parsons will be keen to ensure his side don't start both halves against the Swiss as sluggishly as they did against Portugal. The incentive to overcome Nils Nielsen's stubborn team is clear: a place in the quarter-finals and – should the Oranje better Sweden's result – avoiding a dangerous-looking France side in Rotherham.

View from the camps

Women's EURO 2022 team-mates: Netherlands

Nils Nielsen, Switzerland coach: "The Netherlands don't have to win the game, we have to win, so of course we need to take the initiative. But I still don't think it's going to be a game where we'll have the ball more. It's really hard but we'll find our ways to attack them, and hopefully we'll succeed."

Noelle Maritz, Switzerland defender: "We're feeling good. We had a bit of a rough start with our first game but we showed a good reaction against Sweden, but unfortunately couldn't get a point. We're all very confident about the upcoming game. Obviously, we want to get three points and advance from the group stage. They're a really good side. They have immense power up front, very very good players. It's going to be a tough game for sure, especially in defence."

Mark Parsons, Netherlands coach: "[The match against Portugal] was a wild game, a rollercoaster. Conceding right after half-time is always tough, but we found our legs again and got the game under control. We are a team that is trying to grow throughout this tournament. We will look to be better than in the last two games when we play Switzerland."
