Women’s Euro 2022: The Netherlands and Sweden start working on their first win in Group C.

Their meeting last week with two of the pool’s favorite players may have been considered the toughest test of the first round of the tournament, but Portugal and Switzerland suffered no setbacks on Wednesday night (July 13).

Both played their own interesting draws and Portugal came back with two goals to save the points.

The Netherlands were on the sidelines after a pair of goals from Damaris Agurola and Stephanie van der Gregt, but VAR fouled Diana Silva late in the first half to give Carol Costa the lead.

And with Silva’s header from Costa’s cross reaching the level of Portugal, Orange was disappointed again by a video review when Jill Ruard’s attempt was stopped after a four-minute delay.

However, the last European champions finally put their work together and Daniel van de Donke shot an arrow in the top right corner to seal the Netherlands’ 3-2 victory.

The story was similar when Sweden beat Switzerland 2-1 in the opening game.

Sweden benefited from the VAR review when Noel Maritz went down easily before Fridolina Rolfo moved into the world number two team and the penalty award was reversed.

However, Ramona Bachchan did well after just 92 seconds, after which Switzerland made a comeback on terms.

Teenage Sweden substitute Hannah Bennison restored the advantage with a 20-yard drive, yet her side were never at rest after scoring two late goals for the offside.
