As the top-ranked side in the competition, Sweden were amongst the pre-tournament Women’s EURO 2022 favorites, but their hopes of qualifying for the knockouts are hanging in the balance. In their final game of the group stage they face Portugal, whose previous two ties have produced nine goals and boundless entertainment. Can they do the unthinkable and send the Swedes home early? Here’s how to watch a Sweden vs Portugal live stream for the Women’s EURO 2022, no matter where you are in the world – including free-to-air coverage in some places.
Sweden are level with the Netherlands on four points in Group C but both Portugal and Switzerland, who have a point apiece, are in a position where they could sensationally flip the table on its head.
Sweden just haven’t hit their stride so far. After a solid start against the Dutch, they had the chance to make their mark against a Swiss team that had been left in disarray by a stomach bug, but the Swedes were as flat as Ikea furniture, and fortunate to take three points. Star striker Stina Blackstenius looked sluggish, again, and the victory came courtesy of a lovely solo effort from the teenager Hanna Bennison.
Portugal went 2-0 down early on in both of their games and fought back valiantly on both occasions. It was enough for a draw against Switzerland but not so against the Dutch, who punished them late on. For all of their spirit, Francisco Neto’s side have been their own worst enemies, with three of the goals they’ve conceded coming from routine set-pieces, and another from a goalkeeping howler.
If they can keep things tight early on, they might actually stand a chance here. Follow our guide as we explain how to get a Sweden vs Portugal live stream and watch the Women’s EURO 2022 online.
