Northern Ireland Women’s Euro 2022 Key Players

The squad is pretty much excited, as they are all set to mark their debut participation in this big game. Before qualifying for the event, they were ranked 32nd out of the 48 key contenders. Below are some of the key players to look out for at the upcoming 2022 Women’s Euro Championship.

Rachel Furness
Rachel Furness is an England-born stalwart who proved her ability of scoring goals for her team during the qualifying round. It was a sensational match against Ukraine, where Rachel single-handedly clinched victory, even after having crutches in hand and a broken ankle. Last November she was awarded as the nation’s goal scorer (men or women) and also presented with the BBC Northern Ireland Sports Personality of the Year Award by Jurgen Klopp for her outstanding performance on the field.

Rebecca McKenna
Another player to watch at the Eurogames is Rebecca McKenna, only for her great breakthrough performance in the playoff match against Ukraine. She will be looking ahead to continue with the same winning spirit at this important stage of the event.

Tactics

Even though some of the key players have faced unprecedented injuries in the playoff match against Ukraine, the team’s determination and top-class execution have played a pivotal role in bagging the victory. This time it is expected that Coach Kenny Shiels will come with attacking tactics, deploying 4-4-2, 4-5-1, and 3-4-3 formations. The Central midfield will be safely guarded by Furness, in combination with Kirsty McGuiness and Simone Magill at the attacking point. Ashley Hutton and Julie Nelson are supposed to secure the defense position, with Lauren wade delivering outwards.
