Rotherham is host to Group D; France, Italy, Belgium and Iceland.
France romped to qualification for the tournament, scoring 44 goals and conceding none, winning seven and drawing one of their games in Group G. Les Blues made the quarter finals last time around and also exited in the last eight of their home World Cup in 2019. Corinne Diacre will be hoping to steer the side even further in England in 2022.
The Italian Women need not look far for inspiration when it comes to winning a EURO on English soil after the men’s side brought home the trophy from Wembley last summer. Milena Bertolini’s side are continuing to improve but face a big task to match the success of their male compatriots.
Belgium only lost one game on their way to qualifying for the tournament and will hope to bring that form into the group stage itself. Manager Ives Serneels can call upon prolific Hoffenheim ace Tina de Caigny, who bagged 12 goals in qualifying as they look to make it out of the group for the first time in their history.
The Viking clap is a common sight at stadiums across Europe and undoubtedly the travelling Icelandic fans will bring the noise to England for the tournament. Iceland will hope to at least match their best EURO result, reaching the quarterfinals in 2013. Manager Porsteinn Halldórsson will hope to upset some of the bigger nations in Group D.
Home team: Rotherham United F.C.
Opened: 12 March 2012
Interesting fact: Although the stadium is named after the land it's built on (New York Way), the old Guest and Chrimes factory opposite the stadium used to make fire hydrants for New York City.
The stadium is just a short walk from Rotherham Central railway station, so you'll need to get a train to that station. It takes just over two hours from London with a quick change from Doncaster or Sheffield.
