England vs Germany Although Russo came off the bench to score against Sweden, the Manchester United striker will have to settle for a place among the substitutes, with Wiegman expected to opt for the same line-up that started every game of the tournament.
After conceding just one goal during Euro 2022, a backline with captain Leah Williamson and Millie Bright as center-backs will try to produce another determined display in the final.
Mead will have the chance to finish as the tournament’s top scorer, while the 27-year-old is currently scoring six goals with Popp.
As for Germany, Klara Buhl missed the semi-finals due to COVID-19, but the Bayern Munich player could return to the starting lineup if she tests negative ahead of the final.
The midfield trio of Lena Oberdorf, Sara Dabritz, and Maghull will try to beat England’s Stanway and Keira Walsh in the battle for supremacy in the middle of the park.
Popp will become Germany’s main threat and the attacker has the chance to score in every matchday of Euro 2022 on Sunday.

England vs Germany With eight previous tournament wins to their name, Die Nationalelf has the chance to add a ninth title to their collection after knocking out all challengers en route to the final.
They set up their stall early with a 4-0 win over Denmark to open their campaign before Spain was knocked out on a 2-0 score.
Although the first place in Group B had already been secured, Germany remained professional to take a comfortable 3-0 win over Finland, ensuring they had significant momentum in their quarter-final draw with Austria.
Lina Maghull opened the scoring against Austria and while they had to be patient in their search for a second, Alex Popp found the net in the 90th minute to seal a 2-0 win.
Their semi-final opponents set Germany in for the toughest test of the tournament, with a Merle Frohms own goal nullifying Popp’s opener, leveling the half-time encounter.
Despite netting their first goal of the tournament, Germany showed no sign of stepping back and went on to secure their place in the final thanks to Popp’s sixth goal of Euro 2022.
The side of Martina Voss-Tecklenburg will now aim to maintain their 100% record in the European Championship final, and they will be sure to do so after beating England in all four of their previous encounters in the history of the tournament.
