Sweden, meanwhile, took a while to hit top gear, drawing with the Netherlands, edging past Switzerland 2-1 before then thumping Portugal 5-0. Their semi-final place was secured with a 1-0 win over Belgium.

Latest news

Lucy Bronze insists nobody is getting carried away with thoughts that England are just two wins away from becoming European champions.

Sarina Wiegman’s side have been impressive in their games so far, powering through the group stage with a 100 per cent record and then coming from behind to beat much-fancied Spain in the last eight.

“Every team starts the tournament wanting to end it as the European champion,” said right-back Bronze. “That would be amazing, obviously that’s been the goal.

“But, to be honest, I think the team is just very settled, we’re not focused too far ahead. Everyone is just enjoying the time that we’ve got, and it’s probably the most relaxed we’ve been as an England team in a tournament, certainly in my time anyway.

“We know we’re the favourites, and the hosts, and a lot of these things, but as a team and as a collective group, we’re very level-headed and we’re not focusing on a final or lifting a trophy just yet.”

Previous best

England have been Women’s Euros runners-up in 1984 and 2009 but have never won the competition. Sweden have lifted the trophy once, after beating England on penalties after two legs in 1984.

What are the latest odds for the match?

  • England to win 3/4
  • Sweden to win 15/4
  • Draw 13/5
