England and Germany compete for the trophy in the championship match of the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 at Wembley Stadium.
With a lot of outstanding performances at home en route to the final, Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses have been in a class of their own. They are currently one game away from claiming their first senior major championship.

LIVE SCORE ENGLAND VS. GERMANY 1H 2H FINAL England – – Germany – – Goals:
Live updates and highlights from the final half of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 between England and Germany read: 0-0
45th minute: Stanway is late on a tackle once more, and since she is already on a yellow, she needs to be cautious. At this rate, Wiegman might have to remove her at halftime. Addition of one minute.
Bronze attempts to play a ball towards the back post from the left but it just misses Fran Kirby in the 43rd minute.
41st minute: Left back, Germany Felicitas Rauch displays a little too much violence by flying into Mead’s back and receiving a yellow card.
39th minute: Mead makes a strong break for it along the right side after a spectacular break from England, and she has alternatives in the middle. White receives the ball after she pulls it back, but the striker must stretch to make the shot, and her initial attempt goes over the crossbar. She is aware of what a significant opportunity that was.
A hazardous cross was well caught by Earps in the 34th minute, and Schuller ran in to head the ball home. She receives a beating from the striker, but no harm was intended.
29th minute: England then makes an appeal for a penalty during a rough sequence of play at the other end, but replays reveal there were no issues.
How on earth did that miss in the 26th minute? When a German corner kick lands directly in the midst of England’s six-yard box, a goalmouth scramble ensues. The goalkeeper eventually manages to win it thanks to a few England blocks and a Mary Earps save. Following that, there is a quick VAR check for a possible handball, but nothing happens.
White opens the book one minute later, at the 23rd minute. Uncertain as to whether it was for a major tackle or dissent, England must now simply maintain composure. The crowd seems unimpressed with the choices, for sure.
Georgia Stanway trips Dabritz in the center of the park, earning her a spot in the referee’s record, in the 22nd minute. Although a little bit late, that sounds severe.
In the 21st minute, England is pressuring Germany and White is in charge of the attack. Germany appear to be a little uneasy.
18th minute: Following Bright’s cross, Germany’s defense heads clear for a corner as England receives another risky free kick from the right. The next challenge for Frohms is a high-lofted ball. Bronze’s header from the ensuing corner finds the goal, although it lacks the force to challenge the goalkeeper.
Mead overhits his free kick into the area in the 16th minute, wasting a chance. The way her team has performed thus far will continue to make Sarina Wiegman satisfied.
In the thirteenth minute, Dabritz attempts another long shot, but this one is considerably wilder and flies high and wide. Now that they have settled down a bit, Germany is having more possession in the final third.
10th minute: Sara Dabritz’s goal-bound shot from the edge of the area is brilliantly blocked by Bronze at the opposite end.
8th minute: The home team continues to play well as Keira Walsh threads a pass into space down the left, and Beth Mead breezes to the byline but is unable to find a teammate in the box. Eventually, the offside flag is raised.
6th minute: Merle Frohms, the goalkeeper, has to make a clumsy catch on her goal line as Lucy Bronze whips in a cross from the right. White follows up and clatters into the shot-stopper in an effort to put pressure on her. The shot-stopper wasn’t really impressed.
4th minute: Fran Kirby had a big opportunity for England right away, but Ellen White was hiding in the back post, and her header was superbly saved.
Second minute: Wembley is raging with noise, and nothing has even happened yet! A hard challenge knocks Millie Bright to the ground, but the referee allows play to continue while loud jeers are heard. There is no doubt that the crowd wants to participate today.
We have started!
As of five minutes before kickoff, Alexandra Popp has sustained an injury during warmups and will be replaced by Lea Schuller. This significantly alters the type of play we may anticipate this afternoon because Popp is so strong in the air and Schuller has some speed.
15 minutes before kickoff: There is one more statistic. Sarina Wiegman, the manager of England, has an undefeated record as a coach overall despite Germany’s undefeated record in Women’s EURO finals. Following her victory with the Netherlands in 2017, she is the first manager to guide two separate nations into the EUROs final. Her current record in the competition is played 11, won 11.
30 minutes before kickoff: Here is another statistic that highlights how dominant Germany has been in European women’s football: England has only won two of its 27 encounters with Germany overall and has lost more frequently to them than any other opponent (drawing four, losing 21).
Wembley is expected to be filled with around 90,000 spectators for today’s game, and northwest London has been pretty well full since approximately 9:30 a.m. local time. The majority of the crowd will be in support of the home team, but there will also be a sizable Germany contingent and many fans who are there to support a neutral club.
One hour before kickoff, Sarina Wiegman has named the same starting lineup as each of the previous games.
Additionally, Martina Voss-Tecklenburg runs with the same lineup, with Jule Brand remaining in that position. (Klara Buhl, who she took over for before the semifinal match against France, has now tested negative for Covid-19 and will instead be watching from the stands tonight.)
15 minutes until kickoff: Of course, the Golden Boot is one of the evening’s most intriguing stories. With six goals and five assists, England’s Beth Mead is in first place; Germany’s Alexandra Popp, who is so skilled in the air, is second with the same amount of goals and has already scored in every game. Popp will become just the second player to score in every game from the group stages to the final at a EUROs if she scores again today (after Michel Platini).
30 minutes until kickoff: Whether Sarina Wiegman will start the same lineup for the sixth straight game is the first important topic of the day. If she does, they will become the first men’s and women’s team in the history of the European Championship to use the same starting lineup for every match, from the group stage through the championship game. In around 30 minutes, team news is anticipated.
45 minutes until kickoff: So yeah, Germany is playing in their ninth Women’s EURO final, and they have won their previous eight matches.
On the other side, England is in their third. They were soundly defeated 6-2 by Germany in 2009 after losing the inaugural Euro in 1984 on penalties.
2 hours till kickoff Hello and welcome to the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 final live streaming from The Sporting News! At Wembley, England will play Germany, and we’ll soon find out if football has truly returned home. However, Germany, who are in their ninth final and are an eight-time champion, stand in the way of the Lionesses.
