Sarina Wiegman demands England goes ‘wild’ in all-important Nations League clash with Scotland

England manager Sarina Wiegman emphasizes the importance of giving their all in the upcoming must-win Nations League clash against Scotland.

Lionesses kept their hopes alive with a 3-2 victory over the Netherlands, but they still need to secure a win against Scotland to advance to the semi-finals. Wiegman expressed her desire for the team to play aggressively from the start against Scotland and cautioned against being too cautious in the crucial match.

Speaking ahead of the game, the Lionesses boss said the following when asked if her team would “chuck the kitchen sink” at Scotland: “I hope they go wild from the first minute! But you don’t want to get erratic. We want to be controlled and make the best chances when we’re calm. We’re always thinking of scenarios but it always starts with keeping possession.”

Experienced goalkeeper Mary Earps had a subpar performance against the Dutch in the last match, conceding two soft goals in the first half. Despite Earps apologizing for her poor showing, Wiegman defended her after the match and encouraged her not to blame herself for the mistakes.

The reigning Women’s Euro champions will need to defeat their neighbors and then hope that Belgium somehow prevents the Netherlands from winning their final game. France and Spain are already in the knockout stage, while the fate of Groups 1 and 3 will be determined on Tuesday.
