Extra time loomed Friday as Belgium and Sweden entered the 92nd minute of their Women’s Euro 2022 quarterfinal deadlocked 0-0, but Linda Sembrant produced a winner to put the 2021 Olympic silver medalists in next week’s semifinal against tournament hosts England.

The Scandinavians outshot the Belgians 33-3 and should have won comfortably, but Red Flames goalkeeper Nicky Evrard made some fine stops, while the Swedes squandered chances and had a goal disallowed by VAR.
