Match preview

Will it be the serial winners or the perennial underachievers who take their place in Sunday’s European Championship Final?

Germany have already won this competition on eight occasions, despite only entering ten times, with their streak of six-in-a-row finally broken in 2017.

Die Nationalelf were also World Cup winners in 2003 and 2007, claiming Olympic Gold in 2016 to complete the set.

At this year’s edition, Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side have been back to their brilliant best.

First, they won all three group games without conceding a goal, proving too strong for serious teams Spain and Denmark.

Then, in last Thursday night’s quarter-final clash with Austria, Germany’s quality was on show once again.

Lina Magull broke the deadlock at the Brentford Community Stadium, firing home Sara Däbritz’s cut-back.

Then, Alexandra Popp rubber stamped the win in stoppage time, pouncing on a calamitous goalkeeper error.

So, few could argue that die Nationalelf have been the strongest team at this tournament, so will that continue as the difficulty level increases?

France though, having broken their quarter-final hoodoo, will believe they can pull off the upset.

Les Bleues, like their opponents, cruised through the group phase, notably hammering Italy 5-1.

Then, on Saturday night, Corinne Diacre’s team took on reigning champions Netherlands in Rotherham.

In truth, they dominated the game, accumulating 33 shots to Oranje’s nine; 13-1 in terms of efforts on target.

However, it took until mid-way through extra time for France to make the breakthrough.

A penalty was given after video review, Kadidiatou Diani chopped down, with Ève Périsset converting from 12 yards.

Before this, France had fallen in the last eight at the last three Euros, but are now dreaming of a first-ever major final.

With England or Sweden awaiting the winners at Wembley on Sunday, who will come out on top at Stadium MK?

Germany team news

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s team have enjoyed two extra rest days, enhancing the fact they’re favourites in this tie.

Despite having 118 caps to her name, Alexandra Popp had never featured at a Euros before this year, missing the last two injured.

Nevertheless, she’s making up for lost time, scoring in all four matches so far, looking to keep the streak going.

Elsewhere, Sara Däbritz, Lina Magull and Lena Oberdorf have been an imperious midfield trio.

Goalkeeper Merle Frohms has started all four matches at this tournament so far and is yet to concede a goal.

France teams news

For France, it’s more about who won’t feature than who will.

Their two high-profile forwards Eugénie Le Sommer and Amandine Henry were both left out the squad as they don’t get on with Head Coach Corinne Diacre.

So, what one doesn’t need in this scenario is for the star striker who is in the squad, namely Marie-Antoinette Katoto, to suffer an ACL injury in the group stages.

Short of options through the middle, Melvine Malard will continue to deputise, flanked by Kadidiatou Diani and Delphine Cascarino.

Given this, defensive midfielder Grace Geyoro, who scored a first half hat-trick against Italy, could be one of their main goal threats.
