Whilst Germany instead paced themselves, improving their performances during the Euros and beating France 2-1 to set up this delicious duel against England.

England had one final training session on Saturday in preparation for tonight. Meanwhile, millions across the country are behind England ahead of the final as EURO fever spreads. Follow the latest news on the Euro 2022 final and the build-up ahead of tonight’s game:

David De Gea on Mary Earps

Goalkeeper Mary Earps has been one of England’s unsung heroes throughout this Euro 2022 campaign.

Most of the time she was a passenger in England’s dominating performances as her opponents struggled to put the ball into the last third, but when danger arose, Earps met it.

She made some incredible saves in the quarter-finals and semi-finals to hold England in both games before the Lionesses flipped the switch, started controlling the game and eventually won the games.

Earps plays her home football for Manchester United and men’s No. 1 goalkeeper David De Gea was not surprised by their fantastic performances.

“It was amazing to see Mary do fantastically during Euros and reach the final.” He wrote in The Telegraph: “It’s true we exchanged some messages and I wish her the best of luck for Sunday. Everyone agrees that her save against Sofia Jakobsson in the semi-final against Sweden was outstanding.

“Throughout the tournament she has shown excellent reflexes, quick adaptability and great footwork. She deserves all the awards she gets. Although I was disappointed with her result earlier in the tournament against Spain, I wish Mary Ella [Toone] and Alesia [Russo] good luck for the game.

“It will be a great final between two great teams and nations. I hope the result is the right one for my team-mates in Manchester.”

England in another European Championship final

England have reached yet another European Championship final. It’s the second in as many years after the men’s side’s effort at the belated Euro 2020 last summer.

Italy beat England on that occasion in the game, also at Wembley, but can the Lionesses top it off against Germany tonight?

Beth Mead: The star aiming to propel England to victory in the Euro 2022 final

The smoke continued to rise long after Beth Mead led England’s destruction of Norway. ‘Beth Mead is on fire!’ echoed throughout Brighton night but the individual performance of Euro 2022 didn’t end there.

England’s breakout star continued to lead the way to the final at Wembley. Mead’s stunning hat-trick in a record-breaking 8-0 win lit the torch for what would follow: the thrilling comeback against Spain, the triumphant dismissal against Sweden and, with six goals so far, she now carries England’s hopes as they head to Sunday’s showdown against England Germany as well.

However, it was a crushing disappointment 12 months ago that ignited the flame that propelled Mead to the Euros this month – or as Ian Wright put it, started the “Beth Mead Revenge Tour”.

It’s now unthinkable that the top scorer in England’s squad would miss out on a major tournament just last year, but Team GB manager Hege Riise’s decision to overlook Mead ahead of the Tokyo Olympics last summer served the 27- year-olds as a motivation had to “shift up a gear” and the transformation since then has been extraordinary.

In focus: Lena Oberdorf

Lena Oberdorf turned 20 just three days after Wolfsburg’s 4-0 win over Chelsea in the women’s Champions League in December but has been part of Germany’s squad since FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019.

At Germany, she does the unspectacular work in midfield that allows the likes of Svenja Huth and Alexandra Popp to make headlines further up.

England has its own Oberdorf with Keira Walsh. Which of the two is best placed to disrupt opposition and deliver their own balls could well decide who leaves Wembley with the trophy.

If it’s Oberdorf, that success would likely become one of many that are shaping up to be a great career for the German midfielder.

Russo’s brilliant butt

Alessia Russo’s incredible back-heel against Sweden in the Euro 2022 semifinals was voted goal of the round.

It was an outrageous decision for the striker to pop from that position and angle, but she was rewarded with one of the most replayable goals of the competition.

If England win tonight they will show that on TV for years.

Bühl misses EM final

Germany winger Klara Buhl will miss tonight’s Euro 2022 final. She tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of the semi-final game against France and has not recovered in time to be included in the squad for tonight’s game.

Jule Brand is expected to retain her place in the starting XI on the left side of the front three.

Voss-Tecklenburg on the dream of a Wembley final

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg says it’s like a dream and something for her players to face England in the final of a European Championship at Wembley.

The Germany coach said: “We dreamed of having a final against England here at Wembley, I don’t know if there are many greater hopes for our players. We really want to embrace everything.

“There is a clear vision from Sarina Wiegman and her coaching staff on how they want to play football. They have a lot of pace, a lot of confidence and several dangerous players.

“They want to finish with crosses, long shots or set pieces. They have good physical presence and they have everything a team needs to win a game. They have been unbeaten for a very long time so it would be a good time to change that.”

Kateryna Monzul officiates at the Euro 2022 final tonight

Ukraine’s Kateryna Monzul officiates Sunday’s Euro 2022 final between England and Germany at Wembley Stadium.

The 41-year-old became the first woman to officiate an England men’s game for the World Cup qualifier against Andorra in October 2021.

She will become the first from her country to officiate a final of the European Women’s Championship, having made history in 2016 as the first female official to oversee games in Ukraine’s men’s Premier League.

In focus: Svenja Huth

When Germany won the 2013 Women’s Championship in 2013 and were ruled out of the 2017 finals due to an injury in the first half of the opening game, 2022 was Huth’s opportunity to shine at the European Championship.

Huth, a winger who can just as easily ping Alexandra Popp on crosses to concede or go in the middle to create her own scoring threat, Huth will look to give England left-back Rachel Daly the same problems as Spain’s Athenea del Castillo in the quarterfinals. Final.

Keeping England’s full-backs from overlapping will be crucial for Germany and if Huth can improve her ruthlessness in front of goal she will have a lot to deal with for England tonight.

Featuring: Millie Bright

Millie Bright has been a strong centre-back for the Lionesses and Chelsea for several years, but in recent months she has secured her world-class status.

Her positioning, decision making and physical presence have few flaws and she combines superbly with captain Leah Williamson, who contributes to Tempo’s impressive defensive partnership.

Bright hasn’t scored in her first 39 games for England up to September 2021 but has since scored five goals, including in the 3-1 win over Germany in February when she put England ahead with six minutes from time after losing from Wiegmann had put Sarina in the lead.

She also captained England twice that season in Williamson’s absence.
