While the English women’s team will start “their” Euro on July 6 against Austria at Old Trafford, they gave a good indication of their state of form this Friday, during a friendly gala match against the selection of the Countries -Bas, reigning European champion and finalist of the last World Cup. Even if the new Parisian Lieke Martens opened the scoring for the Dutch (22nd), the reaction of the Lionesses at Elland Road, the Leeds stadium, was thunderous (5-1). After the equalizer of the former Lyonnaise and future Barcelona Lucy Bronze (32nd), Beth Mead gave the advantage to the English (53rd). Coming off the bench a few moments earlier, Ella Toone made the break (72nd), before an achievement by Lauren Hemp (74th). Mead finished the job by offering a double (90th). What strengthen the place of England among the favorites for the coronation. Finalist of the last Euro, Denmark showed its advantage by dominating Brazil (2-1).
