      2024/04/05 22:26

      The reigning champions of Europe England kicked off their journey in the Women's Euro 2025 qualifiers with a 1-1 draw against Sweden at Wembley Stadium.

      Alessia Russo broke the deadlock for the Lionesses by heading in a smart cross from Lauren James in the first half, despite Sweden dominating the game. 

      However, the visitors managed to level through Fridolina Rolfo in the 64th minute, taking advantage of England's lapse in concentration during a throw-in.

      Arsenal striker Stina Blackstenius missed a crucial chance moments later when facing England's goalkeeper, Mary Earps.

      Lauren Hemp made valiant efforts to clinch a win in the closing stages of the game but was denied twice.

      Next up for England is an away game against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin on Tuesday.
