England's women demolished Sweden 4-0 on Tuesday night to book their spot in the Euro 2022 finals on Sunday.

England's pursuit of a first ever European Championship continued on Tuesday night with a 4-0 drubbing of Sweden at Bramall Lane.

After a nervy start from both sides, Beth Mead opened the scoring with a superb volley to give the Lionesses a first half lead.

Just three minutes after the break, Lucy Bronze doubled the lead, and Alessia Russo put the game beyond doubt with a superb back-heeled finish.

Fran Kirby delivered the final goal with 15 minutes left on the clock, to send England through to Sunday's finale.

With the final held at Wembley, the final is bound to be a blockbuster event for England, who have so far entertained the crowd with some stunning displays.

David Beckham is one of many who have admired their performances so far this tournament, and the former England captain congratulated the side and thanked them for inspiring his daughter, Harper.

Writing on his Instagram story following the win, Beckham wrote: "What a night, congratulations to the girls."

He also shared his "favourite picture on a special night" which showed forward Rachel Daly dancing in an England cowboy hat on the pitch.
