Germany went unbeaten in six meetings with England before losing at the Arnold Clark Cup in February. The national team have won their last nine finals.

At 9/1 a bet of £10 would return £100!

England versus Germany in the final of a major tournament in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley; it doesn’t get much bigger.

In history, a team has won eight European Championships, two World Cups and four Olympic medals, including one gold medal.

The other has never won a major tournament, with this first final since a 6-2 defeat by Germany 13 years ago.

Will the serial winners rule Europe again, or will the hosts’ momentum propel them to glory?

Both teams have won five out of five at Euro 2022, with England scoring 14 unanswered goals in the group stage.

This number is heavily skewed by the 8-0 win over Norway; the first time a team has scored 8+ points at a Euro, women or men.

By far the toughest test for the Lionesses came in the quarter-finals, when they conceded a goal against Spain just eight minutes from time.

Ella Toone shot home the equalizer before Georgia Stanway’s extension rocket took the roof off the Amex.

A similarly close encounter was expected ahead of Tuesday night’s semi-final against Sweden, but events certainly didn’t turn out that way.

In all honesty, the Blågult dominated for 25 minutes before Beth Mead’s stunning volley against the flow of play broke the block.

After the break, Lucy Bronze’s header, Alessia Russo’s bold back heal and Fran Kirby’s cheeky lob saw England go wild.

The Lionesses have fallen in the semifinals of each of the last three tournaments but have now broken through that glass cell.

Manager Sarina Wiegman, who led the Netherlands to glory five years ago, has now won all eleven EURO matches she has managed.

Will their perfect record continue as England chase their first-ever silver major?

The potential party spoils have done it all before, winning this competition eight times, including six in a row between 1995 and 2013.

The national team’s defeat by Denmark in the quarter-finals of Euro 2017 was the first time they have been eliminated from this competition in 8,796 days.

At that tournament, Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s team progressed through Group B, easily beating tough opponents Denmark and Spain.

In the knockout round they were spooked by Austria, who hit the woodwork three times before going on to lead 2-0.

Then, on Wednesday, Alexandra Popp proved the difference as they beat France 2-1 at Stadion MK.

Record winners always took breaks, and no one has ever managed to do that.

Will Germany reclaim their crown or will the majority at Wembley celebrate a historic night for England?

It’s safe to say that Sarina Wiegman prefers a solid starting XI.

Holland named six identical lineups when they won the last few Euros and England will almost certainly use the same method.

With that, Ellen White will continue to take the lead; She has only scored once at this tournament but scored against Germany at Wembley in 2019.

Beth Mead will continue on the right wing; She wants to be the first player to score 7+ points on a euro.

Expect the top three to change mid-game, however, as Alessia Russo, Chloe Kelly and Ella Toone have all come on as substitutes in every game so far.

The midfield battle will surely be key in this final as the Lionesses need Georgia Stanway and Kiera Walsh to stay in top form.

Fran Kirby sat out the end of the FAWSL season due to pericarditis. but their availability was key.

Millie Bright and captain Leah Williamson have been rock solid at the back so far; Will the latter host the trophy on Sunday night?

Germany are sweating over the availability of Klara Bühl after missing the semifinals in France due to Covid-19.

If she returns, Bühl will return in place of Jule Brand, who was represented at left flank.

This will be a big boost as no player has created more chances than Bühl’s 14 in this tournament.

Svenja Huth and captain Alexandra Popp complete the front trio.

Despite 119 international matches, Popp had never played in a Euro and missed the last two due to injury.

Still, she’s making up for lost time, scoring in all five games so far, including a brace on Wednesday.

As mentioned earlier, the battle for midfield dominance will help determine whose hands the trophy ends up in.

Lina Magull and Lena Oberdorf alongside Sara Däbritz is as good as it gets in international football.

Merle Frohms only conceded her unfortunate own goal once at the MK Stadium at Euro 2022.

The last time none of these players featured was when Germany won a European Championship final nine years ago, although Däbritz and Huth were part of the squad.
