Germany women’s team manager Martina Voss-Tecklenburg said England are under pressure ahead of Sunday’s Euro 2022 final, with 87,000 spectators expected at Wembley hoping to lead the Lionesses to victory.

England have never won a major women’s tournament, in stark contrast to Germany’s record of winning eight of the previous 12 European Women’s Championships.

But the host country is reaching a climax as senior politicians, royalty, celebrities and famous faces from the male game wish the women of Sarina Wigman all the best.

“Tomorrow there will be more pressure on England than on us,” Voss-Tecklenburg said at a pre-match press conference.

“We dreamed about it, about the final against England at Wembley. I don’t know if there is a more important moment for our players. We want to stay in the present and accept everything.”

Germany has historically dominated the rivalry between countries in women’s games, losing just two out of 27 meetings.

But the Lionesses won their last clash in the Arnold Clark Cup in February.

It was against a heavily weakened German side due to the coronavirus outbreak, with Voss-Tecklenburg left without a key player in the final in Clara Buhl due to Covid.

The Bayern Munich winger missed out on Germany’s 2-1 win over France in the semi-finals and didn’t get negative in time to rejoin the team.
