These have been the two standout sides throughout the tournament, and there is plenty of history behind this fixture.

When England last reached the Women’s Euros final in 2009, they were beaten by Germany – one of 21 defeats in the teams’ 27 meetings.

But Germany coach Voss-Tecklenburg was looking beyond the confines of the women’s game as she considered what this match means, with the men’s rivalry reaching back to England’s 1966 World Cup final success. That remains the sole major title for either the men’s or women’s England teams.

“It electrifies football fans,” said Voss-Tecklenburg at her pre-match news conference on Saturday. “It has such a traditional history.

“For me, there is just one football; I don’t differentiate between men and women.

Sold-out

England’s women have the chance to make history Sunday, and their men’s team are keen to witness it too! said.

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!

And she knows cool heads will be required if England are to prevail and end their wait for a European title. “The biggest thing we need to bring on Sunday is calmness, composure,” added Stanway

“We know that Germany like to get out the traps and they like to put people under pressure and challenge their decision-making. We just need to be even better on the ball, it’s down to us really.”

Popp and Mead key figures

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.
