Women’s Euro 2022 Final, England vs Germany Live: Latest Wembley Recap

After all the preparation since the semi-finals, the day finally came.

Later today, England take on the Germans at a sold-out Wembley with the 2022 European Women’s Championship title on the line. It’s a scenario the England players expected when they began their campaign against Austria at Old Trafford on July 6, but they could hardly believe the journey they’d traveled to get to this point.

The Lionesses made it through the group stage (14 goals scored, none conceded) before showing their mettle in the quarter-final against Spain when Georgia Stanway settled the tie after extra time.

With a newfound sense of faith, Sarina Wiegman’s team took on the challenge of facing a higher ranked team than them for the first time in the tournament in the form of Sweden in the semi-finals, making their way to Wembley thanks to a 4-0 victory. And so we have a deserved and delicious meeting between the hosts in form and the most successful team in the competition.

The Germans, who beat France 2-1 in the semi-finals, have won the title an unbelievable eight times, including a 6-2 victory over England in the 2009 decider, and are set to steal Wembley from under the English, according to Martina Voss-Tecklenburg, who yesterday said: “In the beginning Wembley will be English and I hope that in the end it will belong to us.”

Like England, Germany have only conceded once in these finals and have been strong and focused throughout, as well as clinical in attack. “Ninety thousand people will be there, most of them will be against us, but for us it’s a great feeling,” German midfielder Svenja Huth said.

“There is a stir in Germany at the moment and we hope it will continue like this.” Stay with us as we bring you the latest buildup from Wembley and the surrounding area.
