A look at England’s record against old enemy Germany ahead of the Euro 2022 final

England are set to play Germany in the Euro 2022 final after the eight-time European champions defeated France thanks to a brace from captain Alexandra Popp in Milton Keynes.

Germany took a deserved lead towards the end of a fast-paced first half when Popp came into the box to score for the fifth straight game of the tournament.

But it was quickly equalized by the French before the break, playing in their first semi-final of a major tournament, when Kadidiatou Diani’s fierce strike ricocheted off the post and unlucky goalkeeper Merle Frohms ricocheted off.

France would have the better chances in the second half – but Germany had the clinically better striker. Popp perfected her run again and it was the German captain’s superb header that restored the lead in the 76th minute.

The goal, which Popp also drew level with England’s Beth Mead in the Golden Boot standings, proved decisive and Germany meet the Lionesses in Sunday’s Wembley final.

Here, the PA news agency looks back at the last five meetings between the sides.

Bright put the hosts back ahead with six minutes remaining after Lauren Hemp’s shot was blocked and Kirby sealed the win in added time.

Klara Buhl’s late winner ensured Germany spoiled the party in front of a record-breaking crowd of 77,768 at Wembley Stadium.

White had leveled England after Alexandra Popp headed an eighth-minute opener.

But Buhl’s low shot defeated Mary Earps in the 90th minute, dooming Phil Neville’s side to a fifth loss in seven games.

They fell behind in Hasret Kayikci’s opening game before White was awarded the equalizer after the ball deflected off her.

A Bright own goal put Germany back in front before White’s breakout goal ensured a struggling draw.

England were unlucky to take an early lead in the SheBelieves Cup in Nashville.

The Lionesses led at half-time with Toni Duggan’s ninth-minute header from an Alex Greenwood cross.

But Germany equalized when England defender Gilly Flaherty scored an unfortunate own goal and then Fara Williams missed a tough penalty on her 150th appearance which Babett Peter converted.
