Arsenal striker won England Women’s POTM v Sweden. Can she repeat against Ireland tonight?

Arsenal Women count four Lionesses within their ranks – Leah Williamson, Beth Mead, Lotte Wubben-Moy & Alessia Russo – all of whom are on international duty with Sarina Wiegman and the England Women squad this week, competing in the UEFA Women’s Euro 2025 qualifiers.

The Lionesses played the first of 2 qualifiers last week, when they faced Sweden at Wembley Stadium on Friday 5th April. The match ended in a 1-1 draw, with both teams taking 1 point.

Russo scored England’s only goal of the game, in the first half against Sweden, and she was one of England’s most switched-on players before she was substituted in the second half, but she was not happy with England’s performance overall. Arsenal legend Ian Wright was equally disappointed, saying: “England gave Sweden the impetus. We were very poor tonight, especially in the midfield area, where we were very sloppy. We are fortunate to not lose that game.”.

  1. If Jonas leaves Alessia Russo out of the starting line up then he will deserve all he gets. Beth, Stina and Lessi should all start since the last games will be crunch matches.
