Who will England play in the Women’s Euro 2022 final?
A double from Alexandra Popp helped Germany to secure a gruelling semi-final win as they continue their chase for a staggering 9th European title.
Sub Alessia Russo’s outstanding backheeled goal against Sweden will have tested Sarina Wiegman’s faith in her starting XI, with the Man Utd forward putting pressure on Ellen White.
Keira Walsh went off at the end of the semi-final with cramp but is expected to be fit to start at Wembley.
Germany have no injury problems but Klara Buhl missed the semi-final with Covid.
She will need to produce a negative test to feature in the final.
All 90,000 seats will be filled inside Wembley for this afternoon’s final with the majority taken by England supporters.
The tournament organisers announced earlier today that the final is going to be the most-attended women’s football match in history!
No pressure, Lionesses.
It’s a grey day in North London this afternoon but the fans are bringing the colour.
