Written by Oluwaseun Oyediji

England women’s national team observed their final training session ahead of Friday’s huge game against the Republic of Ireland at Carrow Road.

More Details

It’s the day after the night when the women’s team gathered to watch their men’s counterparts beat the Netherlands 2-1 in the semi final of the UEFA Euro 2024.

It will also be a home-coming for Lauren Hemp as she previously played for the Lionesses at her home town during the Arnold Clark Cup.

She dreamed of scoring at the ground in front of friends and family members as well as helping England achieve their main aim which is to qualify for the 2025 UEFA Women’s Euro.

If the European champions win tomorrow night in a difficult game against the Republic of Ireland, they will be a step close to heading to Switzerland.

An interesting selection issue is that of goalkeeper, Mary Earps who is back in training.

It is left to be seen whether Earps will get that starting shirt after returning from an injury suffered against France.

Head coach, Sarina Wiegman admitted that it will be the most difficult decision for her to take in goal since becoming the coach of England.

The decision will be who to start between Hannah Hampton and Earps who recently moved from Manchester United to French side, PSG.

It will be a big decision ahead for the coach because the team need a win tomorrow before a winner takes all clash against Sweden on Tuesday night.
