The Swedes have had a number of positive Covid-19 tests in the camp, with first-choice full backs Hannah Glas and Jonna Andersson missing the quarterfinal win over Belgium, and playmaker Kosovare Asllani missed training on Sunday as the Swedes finalised their preparations.

We have been told not to answer such questions,” winger Johanna Rytting Kaneryd told reporters. “I’m not going to comment on individual cases, but clearly you’d like to have the whole squad involved (in training).”

Ranked second in the world going in to the tournament, the Swedes are keen to put England in the spotlight.

“They are favourites, they’re at home and they have the pressure from outside,” said midfielder Filippa Angeldahl, who plays her club football for Manchester City in England’s Women’s Super League.

“Obviously we have to take advantage of the fact that they have that pressure on them from the outside and have to win,” she added.
