Player ratings as Lionesses win final pre-Euro 2022 friendly

England signed off their pre-Euro 2022 preparations with a 4-0 victory over a stubborn Switzerland side in Zurich on Thursday evening.

The Lionesses were made to work for their victory, having been held by the visitors for 55 minutes, before goals from Alessia Russo, Georgia Stanway, Beth England and Jill Scott ultimately saw them to a comfortable win.

The victory maintains England’s perfect pre-tournament preparation following their pair of emphatic wins over Belgium and the Netherlands.

Having started at a more sedentary pace before finishing strongly in said previous two victories, the Lionesses burst out of the blocks in Zurich. Seraina Friedli was called into action three times inside the opening 10 minutes, keeping out efforts from Fran Kirby, Lauren Hemp and Russo.

However, England failed to break the deadlock and Switzerland grew into the game, with Ramona Bachmann and Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic looking particularly dangerous.
