Home support will be on the side of the Lionesses and therefore also a surge of confidence after a sensational run up to this point in Sarina Wiegman’s side.
They have conceded just once the entire tournament and a dominating 4-0 semi-final win over Sweden proved that the front line is indeed firing. Beth Mead has six goals to her name, while Alessia Russo has four despite starting every game on the bench.
Twice England have reached the final of a European Championship in the past, in 1984 and 2009. On both occasions they fell at the last hurdle.
It’s a direct contrast to the eight European titles Germany have to their name – only twice since 1987 have they not reached the final. Like Mead, Alexandra Popp has found the back of the net six times and the pair will fight for the Golden Boot.

The big concern for them will be Klara Buhl, who missed this match with Covid. She will have to produce a negative test in the coming days if she is to feature at Wembley.
England vs Germany prediction
The Lionesses are getting better and better and have shown no signs of being affected by the added pressure of hosting the tournament.
Confidence flows through the camp and even though the starting XI is struggling, there is so much strength in depth waiting in the opposite direction and no team has been able to live with England substitutes so far.
Germany have conceded just one goal throughout the tournament and have experience of delivering on the biggest stage time and time again, so this is unlikely to be the kind of comfortable win England produced against Norway and Sweden.
But Wiegman has transformed the mentality of the team – they are ready to go all the way.
English win 2-0.
- England – 11/8
- Draw – 9/4
- Germany – 2/1
