July 31, 2022. A date that will forever be etched into the memory of every England supporter. It is the date England won the 2022 European Championship against Germany at Wembley, an epic way to end a 66-year trophy drought. That the women’s team delivered the glory was fitting.
Sarina Wiegman has now won back-to-back EUROs as head coach of the Netherlands (2017) and England (2022). She is the first coach to guide two different countries to that trophy.
Her tactical mastery was displayed in all its glory with a set template drilled into the players through consistency and hard work. Wiegman showed throughout the tournament how she was able to make subtle adjustments to counteract teams that seemingly figured them out. She was quoted as saying she had multiple plans for every scenario (even if she were to contract COVID-19 and couldn’t be on the sideline) but while many onlookers may not have seen big significant changes, it was small incremental and studied changes that made the difference.
