England vs Germany live stream: how to watch Women’s EURO 2022 final online from anywhere today, team news – Popp injured in warm-up
Tournament hosts England face Germany, the greatest team in the competition’s history, in a blockbuster Women’s Euro 2022 final at Wembley today. It was being billed as a battle between between Lionesses centre-back Millie Bright and Die Nationalelf centre-forward Alex Popp, but Germany’s captain and top scorer has injured herself during the warm-up. Here’s how to watch an England vs Germany live stream no matter where you are in the world – including FREE Women’s Euro 2022 final coverage in some places.
Both coaches had stuck with the same starting lineups from their respective semi-final victories, but Popp’s injury changes everything. The German striker aggravated a pre-existing muscle injury just before kick-off. Lea Schüller, who’s only played 61 minutes at the Euros before today, takes her place up front.
Ellen White, who’s scored four goals in her last three appearances against Germany, starts up front for England, with Alessia Russo on the bench. Lionesses left-back Rachel Daly has a tough job on her hands trying to contain Svenja Huth, who’s been one of Germany’s most reliable creative outlets at right-wing. Teenager Jule Brand, who came in for the injured Klara Bühl in midweek, will face up to Lucy bronze down the opposite flank.

England vs Germany live stream
Germany have won the Women’s Euros a remarkable eight times, one of their most recent triumphs coming courtesy of a 6-2 thrashing of England. However, the Lionesses have enjoyed a little recent success against Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s team, beating them 3-1 in February. The two teams face-off with England in a 4-2-3-1 formation and Germany in a 4-3-3.
Germany’s Popp and England’s Beth Mead are joint top-scorers at the tournament, and both players only need one more goal to break the record set by Inka Grings. German skipper Popp, who had to sit out the two most recent editions of the Euros through injury, has made up for time by scoring in every game so far, her fearsome double against France underlining her status as one of the world’s top strikers. Her injury is a devastating blow for the Germans.
England steamrolled Sweden to the tune of 4-0, with Russo’s impudent backheel flick stealing the show. Sarina Wiegman’s team are at their best when they’re able to dominate the ball, but that’s also the way Germany like to play, and from what we’ve seen so far it’s Voss-Tecklenburg’s side that possess the greater tactical versatility.
Will it be Lena Oberdorf or Keira Walsh who seizes control of the midfield today? The answer could be key, and you can follow our guide as we explain how to get an England vs Germany live stream and watch the Women’s EURO 2022 final online from anywhere in the world.
