Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses take on France or Germany in the showpiece of the tournament
How did England qualify for the final?
The hosts had a somewhat tacky start to the group stage, passing Austria 1-0, but exploded as they progressed further into the tournament.
They turned off a decent Norwegian side before beating Northern Ireland aside.
In the quarter-finals, Wiegman’s players faced arguably their toughest test yet, tournament favorites Spain, and were six minutes away from going out.
But Ella Toone equalized in the 84th minute and Georgia Stanway scored a screamer in the first half of extra time to send England on.
The semi-final against Sweden started again with England under pressure, but they weathered the storm, leading 1-0 at half time and then producing an attack in the second half to win 4-0.
They will be confident no matter who they face in the final.
England beat Sweden 4-0 in Tuesday’s semi-final and are currently on 8/11 to win the European Championship
How did Germany qualify for the final?
Germany defeated Denmark 4-0, Spain 2-0 and Finland 3-0 in a dominant display in their group.
They also beat Austria 2-0 in their quarter-finals, and as they didn’t concede a goal at the tournament before the semi-finals, it proved a tough nut for Corinne Diacre’s gifted French side to crack.
Superstar striker Alexandra Popp scored a double when Martina Voss-Tecklenburg and her team advanced to the final with a 2-1 victory on Wednesday.
Of course we will know more about the team news as the finals approach.
But since the tournament started, England have been largely unscathed by injuries, naming the same starting squad for each of their five games.
While there have been calls for supersub Alessia Russo to replace striker Ellen White up front and the likes of Alex Greenwood to replace Rachel Daly at left back, Wiegman is clearly confident her players will start the game if she wants to.
For Germany, winger Klara Buhl will miss the semi-finals on Wednesday after testing positive for Covid-19. It remains to be seen if she is fit to play the final.
