Women’s Euro 2022: A guide
Here’s your one-stop guide to the 2022 Women’s European Championship, giving you all the information about what lies ahead for our international Reds this summer.
WHICH UNITED WOMEN ARE REPRESENTING THEIR COUNTRIES?
English trio Mary Earps, Ella Toone and Alessia Russo have all made the Lionesses’ squad for this summer’s competition, with Sarina Wiegman’s side kicking off their campaign against Austria at our very own Old Trafford on Wednesday 6 July.
Midfielder Jackie Groenen has been named in the Netherlands’ squad, as the Oranje look to retain the trophy they won in 2017.
Maria Thorisdottir and Vilde Boe Risa will both represent Norway at the Euros this summer and could feature against England in Group A when the sides face each other in Brighton on 11 July.
Full-back Ona Batlle has made Spain’s confirmed 23-player squad that will start their campaign in Group B.
WILL ANY REDS FACE EACH OTHER?
Group A's makeup means that we could see some of Marc Skinner’s squad members line up opposite one another early in the tournament.
On matchday two, on Monday 11 July, England face Norway. This means that Earps, Toone and Russo could be up against United team-mates Thorisdottir and Boe Risa.

Both Old Trafford and Leigh Sports Village have been chosen as host venues for this summer’s tournament.
The Theatre of Dreams plays host to England’s curtain-raiser against Austria on Wednesday 6 July, while three group matches take place at Leigh, starting with Portugal v Switzerland on Saturday 9 July.
