Who are the favourites for Women's Euro 2022? 

At the time of writing, Spain are tournament favorites and anyone who's followed Barcelona's rise to the top of the women's game in recent years will understand why. 

England are close second favorites, with France and current holders the Netherlands also tipped to do well. 

Many people also think Norway could surprise a few people, particularly with their star strike Ada Hegerberg back in the squad after injury, while Sweden, who are second in the FIFA rankings, are expected to make the latter stages.
