Fran Kirby says England will lean on the experience of head coach Sarina Wiegman in their Womens Euros semi-final showdown with Sweden.Wiegmans side are seeking a third appearance in the final of this competition when they clash with the 1984 champions at Bramall Lane on Tuesday and first since 2009.Following their https://www.bucksfanedge.com/milwaukee-bucks-jeresy/donte-divincenzo-jersey dramatic quarter-final victory over Spain, the Lione ses are now unbeaten in 18 matches, while Sweden have not lost since a 2-1 defeat by Denmark in March 2020.The tournament hostswill also be aiming to avoid a fourth succe sive semi-final defeat in major competitions, having fallen at this stage of the 2017 European Championship as well as the World Cup in 2015 and 2019.Meanwhile, Wiegman is looking to lift this trophy for the second time in as many editions, after guiding her native Netherlands to glory five years ago.And Kirby, who has played in every match of Englands run to the last four, believes the 52-year- https://www.bucksfanedge.com/milwaukee-bucks-jeresy/oscar-robertson-jersey olds previous experience of the big occasions will be hugely beneficial in the Lione ses quest to avert further semi-final heartache.Shes been there and done it;shes got to finals, shes won major finals, the forward said.The best person to get us through is her.I think shell come with a lot of experience and a lot of advice; she already has https://www.bucksfanedge.com/milwaukee-bucks-jeresy/jrue-holiday-jersey done leading into this tournament.For her, its a case of doing whats normal because shes been to a few now. Im sure well lean on her a little bit in order to get through it. First and foremost, shes a great coach;the way that she sees football, the way that she analyses other teams.But I think her management of players sticks out for me and the way that shes made every person feel valued https://www.bucksfanedge.com in this team whether youre a starter, whether youre coming in as a sub, whether you dont get any minutes.I think everyone knows what their role is in the team and what theyre there to do. Theyve taken that in their stride.I think thats a compliment to her in how people have managed themselves and https://www.bucksfanedge.com/milwaukee-bucks-jeresy/jordan-nwora-jersey made sure that when youre called upon, youre ready to go. Its not easy to do things like that when youve been sat on the bench.To make people still feel valued andfeel hungry when they come on the pitch that they can change it, and they can help is a really special quality, and I think she has that.
