So, just when it seemed that Germany were in control... up steps the sub Toone with an ice-cold finish to send 90% of Wembley Stadium into raptures.

Toone it is with the goal, what a finish from the sub.... a delightful lob over the keeper and Wembley stadium erupts !

 

England take the lead...

52

England already preparing, what looks like two changes... Wiegman aware that her side are being outplayed and the Dutch coach looks to make here move.

Not sure what Germany coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg said at the break, but it has woken her side from the lackluster Germany we saw in the first half.

49

Germany looking like a different proposition in the half, the girls in green have come out with a different attitude as Magull drives the ball inches wide. 

48

Earps hasn't put a finger wrong today, the United keeper grabbing every lofted ball into the box and seems to be brimming with confidence. Germany break and Wassmuth hits the ball straight at the England keeper.

46

The side in green get the action underway

The teams take to the pitch for the second side and its Germany who start the action

ENG 0-0 GER

Nothing to choose from both sides in the first 45 minutes. White with two decent half-chances for England and Earps on call to thwart Germany twice during the half....where will the deadlock be broken?

The whistle sounds and the players head to the Wembley dressing rooms with a 0-0 scoreboard... Tight and tense with nothing resembling a clear-cut chance for either side.

Germany initially reeling from the news that a muscular problem sustained by Alexandra Popp during the warm-up would rule their captain out of the game.

Frohms possibly the busier of the two keepers...

45

45 minutes up on the clock as the fourth official confirms an additional minute of time.

The game is a lot more open now with the opening quarter of an hour a tense and cagey affair..... England ahead ever so slightly if pushed to select a dominant side as White fires over with the left boot as the City player was leaning back.

31

Past the half hour mark and it's a cagey one here at Wembley. England on top with Germany slowly clawing their way into the contest clearly rocked with the loss of Alexandra Popp in the warm-up. 

Germany go close and Earps is called into action as she smothers a stray ball in the box. The game developing a 'wave pattern' now with Germany currently in charge as VAR takes a look at a possible spot kick for Germany...

Check over and nothing ....

And Darbritz is targeted again and this time it's Ellen White who finds her way into the book.

First card of the night is awarded to Stanway for a lunge on Dabritz.

19

England now laying siege to the German goal with Mead on dead ball duty and showing a tendency to overheat her corner kicks. Frohms very much the busier of the two keepers however with Earps yet to be called into action for England.

Past the quarter of an hour and it was England who started better but as the clock ticks down, Germany seem to have woken up with the only chance (half-chance) falling to Ellen White in the opening minutes.

13

Better from Germany now as they seem to have started the game in 'shell-shock mode' after losing their talismanic captain and goalscorer in Popp. Huth now very much the outlet in front of goal for the visitors.

Germany confirming Popp situation

 

The German FA confirm that Popp has to miss the game at short notice due to muscular problems. Lea Schüller starts from the beginning. Svenja Huth takes over as captain.

England looking to exploit the German wings with White the target for balls being launched in from both flanks. First effort from Germany as Dabritz shoots from outside the box.... Ball deflected away from the danger zone and the flag goes up for offside.

The absence of Popp surely gives England a major advantage... 

The worst possible news for Germany as leading goalscorer and Golden Boot leader Alexandra Popp is out for the Euro 2022 final against England after picking up an injury in warm-ups...

It's been an overcast morning and afternoon in the English capital and the sun makes a brief appearance glistening on the Wembley surface... Far from cold with a current temp. of 25C/77 F..ideal conditions for players and fans alike.

First chance of the night falls to England as Kirby finds White who heads the ball straight at the German keeper.

Not sure if it's just me, but the Wembley surface looks very dry and slow....

Off we go at Wembley Stadium ....

Sold out Wembley

Georgia Stanway revealed England’s men’s team have made ticket requests for the sell-out Women’s Euros final between the Lionesses and Germany.

A Women’s Euros record crowd of 87,200 will be in attendance for the mouth-watering showpiece, just over a year on from England’s penalty shoot-out defeat to Italy at the same venue in the final of the men’s Euros.

Speaking during a media conference ahead of the final, Stanway - scorer of a stunning extra-time winner in the quarter-final against Spain - said: “Quite a lot of the England men have been in touch, just wishing us well and asking if they can have a ticket.

“Sorry lads, we’re all sold out!

UEFA Women's EURO 2022 ...a huge triumph

Whatever the outcome of today's final at Wembley, this tournament has been a resounding success breaking the overall tournament attendance record of 240,055 set at Women's EURO 2017 in the Netherlands which has now been doubled in England.
Following the semi-final between Germany and France, the attendance for this tournament now stands at 487,683 fans with 100,000 children have been part of that record-breaking attendance while 47% of all fans in the stadiums have been female, with a similar fan demographic anticipated for the final today.

Kateryna Monzul

Wembley final referee Monzul relishing an ‘emotional moment’

The 41-year-old official Kateryna Monzul from Kharkiv in eastern Ukraine will lead out the two finalists, England and Germany, for Sunday’s big occasion in front of a huge crowd at London’s iconic Wembley Stadium.

Monzul endured a difficult period earlier this year when war broke out in Ukraine, and she decided to leave her country.

This is a really emotional moment for me, and I’m enjoying it,” says Monzul, who started out as an international referee in 2004. “My heart is already beating fast. It’s the moment when a dream you have comes true.”

“But I must say that it’s also a moment where I feel responsibility, because I’ll be refereeing an important football game.”

The call to tell her loved ones back in Ukraine about her selection for the final was a moment of immense joy and pride. “When I heard their happy and positive response,” Monzul recalls, “I realised how important it was for them as well as for myself.”

Germany XI confirmed

The German side is named with all eyes on Alexandra Popp, Germany's main danger outlet and scorer of six goals during the tournament so far. Lena Oberdorf has been a rock in a defensive capacity and the 'Lionesses' will need to be at their best to outfox the Wolfsburg player.

England XI

England remain unchanged for the sixth consecutive game with head coach Weigman remaining faithful to her 'if it ain't broke, why fix it' line of thinking.. Beth Mead leads the line and will be looking to add to her six goals during the Euro 2022 competition.

Mead, England's top performer

Beth Mead will hope to crown, what has been an excellent Euro 2022 with a winners medal today in front of a packed and partisan crowd at Wembley Stadium. Mead (along with Germany's Popp) have bagged six goals during the tournament with the Arsenal striker also leading the stats charts when it comes to assists.

Lionesses arrive at Wembley

Lionesses manager, Sarina Wiegman has told England's silky-skilled Lionesses to be on their guard for a physical battle from Germany in the Euro 2022 final.

The England boss has won all 11 of her European Championship matches as a manager, including her run to glory in charge of the Netherlands five years ago.

Alexandra Popp of Germany

UEFA Women's EURO 2022 semi final

Popp and Mead: Players to watch

Undoubtedly two of the standout players in England during the last three weeks have been Beth Mead and Alexandra Popp, current joint-top scorers with six goals each.

The Lionesses have not found it difficult to score goals, finding the net 20 times in five games in the tournament so far. In fact, only Germany in 2009 have ever scored more at a Women’s Euros (21).

Mead’s goal in the opening 1-0 win against Austria at Old Trafford was vital for getting their campaign rolling, before she grabbed a hat-trick in the 8-0 thrashing of Norway, another in the 5-0 win against Northern Ireland, and the opener in the 4-0 semi-final humbling of Sweden.

While Germany have not been quite as proficient – still scoring a respectable 13 goals – Popp’s contributions had initially come when adding to leads, with the captain’s goals against Denmark, Spain, Finland and Austria all arriving when her team were already ahead.

However, she came into her own in the last-four clash with France, scoring both goals in the 2-1 win, including a dominant header to win it with 14 minutes remaining.

The action from a sell-out Wembley Stadium gets underway at 17:00 (local time) or 12:00 pm (ET) / 9:00 am (PT).
