Wiegman has led England to three wins out of three so far but recently signed Covid
Spain manager Jorge Vilda will be without his best player, winger Alexia Putellas, saying: “I think it’s going to be the toughest game of the Euros given the level England are playing at – and that they’re hosting, their fans are behind them – but that’s something that drives us.
“We like challenges.”
England have already scored 14 goals in just three games in this tournament, helped by last Monday’s 8-0 win against Norway.
They have not conceded a goal either and are among the favorites to win the competition on home soil.
