A Euro 2022 final match up that was almost destined to be, wasn’t it? The oldest footballing rivalry in the world will come together again this weekend as England Lionesses take on Germany in Sunday’s historic Euro 2022 final at Wembley.
The Women’s Euros has undoubtedly been a tournament for the ages, with record attendances, record scorelines and now a fitting final match up for which to crown a memorable month for women’s football.
And for Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses side, it also represents a chance to cement a place in the history books, as the host nation aim to bring home England’s first ever European Championship, and first major trophy since 1966.
Goals from Beth Mead, Lucy Bronze, Fran Kirby and a much celebrated back-heeled finish from Alessia Russo meant they made light work of a highly rated Swedish side in Tuesday’s semi-final in Sheffield to book their place in the final of Euro 2022.
For Germany, two strikes from the in-form Alex Popp handed them a hard-fought 2-1 victory over France to secure their own passage to the final and – like the Lionesses – maintain their 100% record at the tournament.
However, this weekend something has to give, and we’ve got all the latest news so you don’t miss a minute of the action.

England team news
Wiegman has yet to alter her starting XI in Euro 2022, keeping the exact same side that started the opening game against Austria at Old Trafford. Could she spring a suprise this Sunday though?
Manchester United striker Alessia Russo is knocking on the door for a starting berth, having scored an astonishing four goals from the bench in the tournament already, including her cheeky backheel against Sweden which has become of the moments of the tournament.
Hannah Hampton and Lotte Wubben-Moy were both struck down with Covid-19 earlier in the tournament, but the duo have recovered well and been part of recent squads. At the time of writing, Wiegman should be able to pick from a fully fit squad for Sunday’s final.
