England vs Germany LIVE!

England made history at Wembley as Chloe Kelly scored the winner to beat Germany in the Euro 2022 final. Kelly prodded the ball past Merle Frohms in the 110th minute to restore the tournament hosts’ lead after fellow substitute Ella Toone’s wonderful lobbed opener just after the hour mark.

Eight-time champions Germany - who had lost star forward Alexandra Popp to injury in the warm-up - equalised with 11 minutes of normal time remaining through Lina Magull, and the game looked on course for a penalty shoot-out until Kelly’s effort fired Sarina Wiegman’s side to glory. A year on from the men’s team losing their Euros final at the stadium on penalties to Italy, England can celebrate the first piece of major silverware for a senior side since the men’s 1966 World Cup triumph over West Germany.

And there was jubilation at the final whistle as the players tried to take in what they had done amid an almighty roar from the 87,192 crowd - the biggest-ever attendance for any Euros match, men’s or women’s. Meanwhile, boss Wiegman could savour back-to-back Euros successes after overseeing the Netherlands’ triumph on home soil in 2017. Her record in charge of England after taking up her post last September has been near-flawless - 20 games, no defeats, 18 wins, 106 goals scored and only five conceded.

It was a third appearance in a Euros final for the team, and first since losing 6-2 to Germany at Euro 2009 in Finland.

The English women’s game has been on a journey of considerable growth in the intervening years, with the sense of momentum certainly apparent over the last few weeks as Wiegman’s team have thrilled large stadium crowds and television audiences - and there will be sky-high hopes for what the future holds after this historic moment. There was also a personal triumph for Beth Mead, who claimed the Golden Boot after finishing the tournament with six goals - the same amount as Popp, with Mead taking the prize due to her superior assists tally.

England’s Lionesses sealed the country’s greatest footballing triumph in over half a century as they were crowned European champions for the first time with a 2-1 win over Germany after extra-time at Wembley.

Substitute Chloe Kelly scrambled the ball home in the 110th-minute to secure England’s first major tournament triumph since the 1966 World Cup.

In terms of wider significance, it might be the most consequential result at Wembley since England’s men beat Germany 56 years ago, a genuine before and after moment for the fastest growing sport in the country.

Sloppy stuff from England

19:11 , Jonathan Gorrie

104:00 - Walsh and Williamson, two of England’s more composed players, gulity of mistakes in the last few minutes.

Luckily, they’ve not led to anything.

Germany looking the most likely

19:09 , Jonathan Gorrie

101:00 - Hard to remember an England chance since Germany’s goal.

Simon Collings at Wembley

19:07 , Jonathan Gorrie

This game is on an absolute knife edge and you can feel it. Wembley going eerily quiet at moments whenever there’s a break in play.

England on the ropes

19:04 , Jonathan Gorrie

97:00 - Last ditch stuff in the England box after a German corner.

Tired legs out there.

Brilliant flick from Kelly

Four minutes to go!

Dan Kilpatrick at Wembley

18:48 , Jonathan Gorrie

England have lost some shape and composure since the equaliser and have resorted to going long towards Russo. The introduction of experienced pair Greenwood and Scott should add energy and calm.

More England changes

Simon Collings at Wembley

18:42 , Jonathan Gorrie

England are just rocking a bit here after that goal. They need to reset and focus. Wiegman is out patrolling her technical area.

Where do England go from here?

After her stunning assist, she finds Russo from deep again but the striker is crowded out.

Attendance watch

18:31 , Jonathan Gorrie

Set-piece danger

71:00 - That being said, England need to sort their defence out when it comes to set-pieces.

Almost every single German corner has caused major problems.

Exactly what England want

18:28 , Jonathan Gorrie

69:00 - Germany have to go for this now, leaving all sorts of space in behind.

With Toone and Russo up top, there’s every chance of another counter.

OFF THE POST

18:24 , Jonathan Gorrie

65:00 - Germany almost reply through Magull, though Earpes pushes her shot onto the post.

Simon Collings from Wembley

18:23 , Jonathan Gorrie

That is just an unreal pass from Walsh. She’s been brilliant for England all tournament, just a world-class central midfielder.

GOAL! England 1-0 Germany | Ella Toone ‘61

18:20 , Jonathan Gorrie

61:00 - ENGLAND ARE AHEAD!

Ella Toone with a STUNNING chip after a fantastic ball over the top from Walsh. Incredible!!!

Dan Kilpatrick at Wembley

18:17 , Jonathan Gorrie

This has been a full throttle affair with no shortage of the dark arts and some absolutely crunching challenges. No evidence here that women’s football is a gentler sport.

CHANCE FOR GERMANY

18:15 , Jonathan Gorrie

56:00 - Schuller is played in behind but Earpes does well to collect, sweeping up the danger. The Germany forward is booked for leaving a boot in.

England changes

18:13 , Jonathan Gorrie

We’ve seen this one before...

Frustrating for England

18:11 , Jonathan Gorrie

53:00 - The one real chance England have to break sees Bronze play a line-breaking pass into Stanway, though she’s blocked out in midfield.

Simon Collings at Wembley

18:10 , Jonathan Gorrie

As with nearly all of England’s games, this is going to come down to the bench. How long before we see Kirby and White off, Russo and Toone on?

Simon Collings at Wembley

18:08 , Jonathan Gorrie

Fran Kirby has barely had a kick all game. She hasn’t been helped by the service, with England just playing long balls up to her. Something needs to change

CHANCE FOR GERMANY!

18:07 , Jonathan Gorrie

49:00 - Germany in control here.

Brilliant one-touch stuff around the edge of the box sees Magull get a shot off, though she drags it just wide.

Earps as calm as ever

18:05 , Jonathan Gorrie

47:00 - Earps has been called upon early doors but, as ever, she’s in command.

Back underway

18:03 , Jonathan Gorrie

Here we go!

Germany change

18:02 , Jonathan Gorrie

Wassmuth on for Brand for the second-half.

Edging closer to the second-half

18:00 , Jonathan Gorrie

No England changes at the break it seems.

Dominant

17:52 , Jonathan Gorrie

Simon Collings’ half-time verdict

17:49 , Jonathan Gorrie

Pretty even opening 45 minutes. England gone close with two good chances for White, while Germany somehow didn’t score a goalmouth scramble. Finely poised for the second-half.

HT: England 0-0 Germany

17:48 , Jonathan Gorrie

Into added time

17:46 , Jonathan Gorrie

45:00 - Entertaining first-half about to come to a close, with England finishing the brighter.

Booking

17:42 , Jonathan Gorrie

40:00 - Rauch into the book for a pretty strong challenge on Mead.

The crowd give an ironic cheer, given some of the deicsions from the officials.

CHANCE FOR ENGLAND

17:39 , Jonathan Gorrie

38:00 - Brilliant one-two between White and Mead sees the striker in space in the box, though she’s stretching to make contact and fires over.

Slick passing stuff, such a shame the finish wasn’t there.

The game lulling a bit

17:37 , Jonathan Gorrie

35:00 - Clever from England to take the ball back and string some passes together after a flurry of German chances.

Simon Collings at Wembley

17:28 , Jonathan Gorrie

It may be a largely family crowd, but boy can the make a racket when they aren’t happy. The referee is getting plenty of boos.

Dan Kilpatrick at Wembley

17:27 , Jonathan Gorrie

Bookings for Stanway and White will frustrate England, especially as Germany have gotten away with similar challenges. Stanway in particular will have to be careful against playmaker Lena Oberdorf.

OFF THE LINE!

17:26 , Jonathan Gorrie

25:00 - Somehow, England survive!

Williamson clears a corner off the line but Earps scrambles to keep it.

White and Stanway booked

17:24 , Jonathan Gorrie

23:00 - Two soft yellows within a minute of each other there. England need to keep their heads.

England might regret missed chances

17:23 , Jonathan Gorrie

21:00 - Granted, England have bee thrillingly prolific throughout the tournament but the more missed chances, the more the anxiety in the stadium grows.

Germany will grow into this.

England piling on the pressure

17:20 , Jonathan Gorrie

18:00 - It’s England corner after England corner at the moment and Bronze goes closest with a bullet header.

Lauren Hemp England’s brightest spark so far

17:16 , Jonathan Gorrie

14:00 - The ground holds its breath whenever Hemp gets the ball. Able to turn her markers inside out, the England star has been a bright spot thus far.

Simon Collings at Wembley

17:13 , Jonathan Gorrie

As usual, Keira Walsh trying to get on the ball and dictate the game - but Germany are pressing well. That’s been a hallmark of their play this whole tournament.

Warning sign

17:11 , Jonathan Gorrie

09:00 - Bronze called into action to head Dabritz’s shot off the line.

It’s given as offside but certainly a warning signal sent.

Dan Kilpatrick at Wembley

17:07 , Jonathan Gorrie

So, so cruel for Alexandra Popp, who has been one of the stars of the tournament and is chasing the Golden Boot. Even more so when you consider she missed the last two tournaments through injury. Will it destabilise Germany? Can England take advantage?

ALMOST FOR ENGLAND

17:07 , Jonathan Gorrie

05:00 - Bronze fires a cross in, Frohms drops it and White tries to react first.

In the end, it’s given as a foul to Germany.

CHANCE FOR ENGLAND

17:04 , Jonathan Gorrie

03:00 - Kirby drives at the Germans, crossing in for White at the back post but the England great cannot get enough power on the header to trouble Frohms.

Fast start

17:03 , Jonathan Gorrie

01:00 - Kirby wins the ball back just outside her box and frees Hemp, who cannot quite break behind the lines.

Not at all cagey in the opening few minutes.

KICK-OFF!

17:01 , Jonathan Gorrie

HERE WE GO!

Big news before kick-off with Popp forced out of the Germany side! Schuller comes in as her replacement.

Wiegman told BBC One: "It’s going to be a very exciting game. I think it’s going to be really tight with two very, very good teams.

"I think they will play a little more physical and we hope to have the ball a little more and play our possession game, but it’s going to be really close."

Asked what her final words would be to her players before kick-off, she replied: "I don’t know yet. We know everything. Our plan is really clear. Everyone is really, really prepared and the final words will come in the dressing room."

England unchanged

15:56 , Jonathan Gorrie

Sarina Wiegman decides against changing an England starting XI for the first time at Euro 2022.

The Lionesses have named an unchanged side on each occasion on their run to the final, and Wiegman opts to do the same as England face Germany at Wembley this afternoon.

Alessio Russo could not have done more in her bid to replace Ellen White up front, scoring four goals in the tournament despite starting all five games on the bench. That fact she has proved so dangerous against tiring defences, and seems so suited to the super-sub role, means White gets the initial nod once again.

Euro 2022 final: All female fly-past and record crowd expected for Germany clash

15:13 , Jonathan Gorrie

England’s highly-anticipated clash against Germany is expected to draw in the biggest home TV audience on record for a women’s football match and will also see an all female fly-past.

Some 90,000 fans are due to fill Wembley Stadium – most hoping to watch the Lionesses secure the first major tournament title for an England team since 1966 – while millions more watch from homes, pubs and fan zones.

The record number of viewers for a women’s game is 11.7 million, which was set during England’s semi-final defeat by the United States in the 2019 World Cup, although audience records are expected to be broken on Sunday.

Sarina Wiegman: England fear no one

Sarina Wiegman says England fear no one going into Sunday’s Euro 2022 final against Germany at Wembley.

England have stormed to the final after thumping Sweden, the No2 ranked team in the world, 4-0 in the semi-finals. Before that, the Lionesses cruised through the group stage, winning all their games and scoring 14 unanswered goals.

England are unbeaten in 19 games since Wiegman was appointed, scoring over 100 goals, and ahead of Sunday’s final with eight-time European champions Germany, the Dutch women was in a confident mood.

Wembley Way is filling up

14:39 , Jonathan Gorrie

What a sight...

Prediction

14:34 , Jonathan Gorrie

The Lionesses are going from strength to strength and have shown no signs of being impacted by the added pressure of hosting the tournament.

Confidence is flowing through the camp and even if the starting XI is struggling, there is so much strength in depth waiting in reverse and no team has been able to live with England’s substitutes so far.

Germany have only conceded one goal all tournament and have the experience of delivering on the biggest stage time and time again, so it is unlikely to be the kind of comfortable win that England produced against Norway and Sweden.

But Wiegman has transformed the mentality of the side - they are ready to go all the way.

A 2-0 England win.

England team news: White and Daly likely to start

14:16 , Jonathan Gorrie

Once again Wiegman’s faith in her starting XI will be tested. Russo continues to shine off the bench and while that has led to calls for her to replace Ellen White in the team, the Lionesses could opt to keep her in that super-sub role.

Keira Walsh went off against Sweden late on with cramp but is expected to be fine to start again, while Rachel Daly is likely to get the nod at left-back over Alex Greenwood.
