Germany captain and semi-final goalscorer Alexandra Popp says it “doesn’t get better” than facing England at Wembley in Sunday’s Euro 2022 final.

Popp scored both goals as Germany reached their ninth European Championship final in 11 outings, beating France 2-1 in Milton Keynes.

It sets up a mouthwatering clash with the Lionesses and will be a replay of the 2009 Euros final, which Germany went on to win 6-2.

Popp said after the game: “I can’t put it into words. We played an amazing game and threw everything in. We are incredibly happy; nobody expected us. We’re in the final at Wembley against England – it doesn’t get any better than that.

“We earned our self-confidence in all the games. The team is just great; they have my back and are happy with me after my whole story of suffering. Now it’s time to regenerate quickly.”

The striker is now level with England striker Beth Mead for the Euro 2022 Golden Boot, with both players having scored six goals so far. Popp, however, has netted in every game so far, while Mead did not find the net against Spain in the quarter-final.
