Match preview

England vs Germany in the final of a major tournament in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley; it doesn’t get much bigger than this.

In terms of history, one team has won eight European Championships, two World Cups and four Olympic medals, including one gold..

The other has never won major tournament, with this their first final since a 6-2 defeat to, yes you guessed it, Germany 13 years ago.

Will the serial winners rule European once again, or will the host’s momentum carry them to glory?

Both teams have won five out of five at Euro 2022, with England scoring 14 unanswered goals in the group stages.

This figure is largely skewed by their 8-0 demolition of Norway; the first time a team has scored 8+ at a Euros, women’s or men’s.

By far the Lionesses’ toughest test came in the quarter-finals when they found themselves a goal down to Spain with just eight minute to play.

Ella Toone bundled home the equaliser, before Georgia Stanway’s extra time rocket took the roof off the Amex.

A similarly close encounter was expected ahead of Tuesday night’s semi-final with Sweden, but this certainly isn’t how events transpired.

In fairness, the Blågult dominated for 25 minutes before, against the run of play, Beth Mead’s stunning volley broke the deadlock.

After the break, Lucy Bronze’s header, Alessia Russo’s audacious back-heal and Fran Kirby’s impudent lob saw England run riot.

The Lionesses had fallen at the semi-final stage at each of the last three tournaments, but have now smashed through this glass-celling.

Manager Sarina Wiegman, who led Netherlands to glory five years ago, has now won all 11 Euro matches she’s managed.

Will her perfect record continue with England chasing their first-ever major silverware?

The potential party-poopers have done it all before, winning this competition eight times, including six in a row between 1995 and 2013.

Die Nationalelf’s defeat to Denmark in the Euro 2017 quarter-finals was their first time they’d been eliminated from this competition for 8,796 days.

At this tournament, Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side cruised through Group B, easily seeing off serious opponents Denmark and Spain.

Into the knockout rounds, they were given a scare by Austria, who hit the woodwork thrice, before getting through 2-0.

Then, on Wednesday, Alexandra Popp proved the difference as they ousted France 2-1 at Stadium MK.

The record winners were always going to take some stopping and, so far, no one has managed to do just that.

Will Germany recapture their crown or will the majority inside Wembley be celebrating an historic night for England?

England team news

It’s safe to say that Sarina Wiegman favours a settled starting XI.

Holland named six identical line-ups when they won the last Euros, and England are almost certainly going to follow the same method.

This’ll see Ellen White continued to lead the line; she’s scored just once at this tournament, but did net against Germany at Wembley in 2019.

Beth Mead will continue on the right-wing; she’s looking to become the first player to score 7+ at one Euros.

Expect the front three to change mid-game though, with Alessia Russo, Chloe Kelly and Ella Toone having all come on in each match to date.

The midfield battle will certainly be key in this final, with the Lionesses needing Georgia Stanway and Kiera Walsh to remain on top form.

Fran Kirby sat out the end of the FAWSL season due to Pericarditis. but her availability has been key.

Millie Bright and captain Leah Williamson have been rock solid at the back so far; will the latter be hosting the trophy on Sunday night?

Germany team news

Germany are sweating over Klara Bühl’s availability after she missed the France semi-final due to Covid-19.

If she’s back, Bühl will return in place of Jule Brand who deputised on the left-wing.

This’ll be a big boost as no player has created more chances than Bühl’s 14 at this tournament.

Svenja Huth and captain Alexandra Popp will complete the front three.

Popp, despite having 119 caps to her name, had never played at a Euros before, missing the last two due to injury.

Nevertheless, she’s making up for lost time, scoring in all five matches to date, including a brace on Wednesday.

As mentioned, the fight for midfield supremacy will go along way to determining who’s hands the trophy ends up in.

Lina Magull and Lena Oberdorf alongside Sara Däbritz is about as good as it gets in international football.

Merle Frohms has only conceded once at Euro 2022, her unfortunate own goal at Stadium MK.

None of these players featured the last time Germany won a Euros final nine years ago, although Däbritz and Huth were part of the squad.
