England seeks to unlock German defence – VELOXNEWS


By Paul Erewuba

England’s women’s team is set to host Germany in a historic European Championship final showdown today at Wembley Stadium.

The winners will compete in the first edition of the UEFA–CONMEBOL Women’s Finalissima against the winners of the 2022 Copa América Femenina.

Following the Lionesses’ 4-0 victory over Sweden in their semi-final in Sheffield last Tuesday, Germany beat France by 2-1 in Wednesday’s semi-final in Milton Keynes to set up the competition’s showpiece game.

England has won just two of their 27 meetings with Germany in all competitions, and have lost more often against them than any other opponent. However, the Lionesses did win their last such meeting 3-1 in February this year.

On the other hand, Germany has won all four of their meetings with England at the UEFA Women’s European Championship by an aggregate score of 15-4. This is the first meeting between the sides at the tournament since the 2009 final, and a 6-2 win for Germany.

England will compete in their third UEFA Women’s European Championship final, previously losing against Sweden in 1984 and Germany in 2009.

And this is Germany’s ninth appearance in the UEFA Women’s European Championship final, meaning they’ve appeared in 69% of the total finals in the competition’s history.
