Lioness of England arrived in Wembley and began preparing for a warm-up to make football history when playing against Germany in the 2022 Euro final.
The countdown continues until 5 pm when the homeside can win the first major trophy. Teams are vulnerable-Germany has won eight titles and 21 out of 27 meetings between the two teams.
But England won when the team last played in February. Since Salina Wiefman became coach in September, she has played 19 games, 17 of which have been won.
England has not changed the team lineup from previous matches.
“Some fans have been waiting for this moment for three hours. There’s a woman here who’s about to cry because she’s so emotional. Here’s the bus,” said Sky Sports Gale Davis.
“What a moment this is. Salina Weigman talked about blocking this noise, but it’s almost impossible to do.
“Look at the scene. My spine is tingling.”
Princess Charlotte cheers for Lioness
Celebrities and British royalty are among those who want a team ahead of tonight’s finals.
In a video posted online, Prince William said:
He was accompanied by his seven-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte, who added, “Good luck. I hope you win!”
The Royal Air Force Flypass, led by an all-female crew, heads to the sky to cheer on the team ahead of tonight’s match.

FltLtLauren, who helped train the first female Afghan pilot when she was deployed in Afghanistan, said seeing the England team was “exciting.”
“I flew missions around the world with RAF, which will be one of the most memorable,” she said.
“It’s exciting to see Lioness progress, and I’ll cheer you out as soon as I return to RAF Brize Norton.”
“We are not afraid of anyone,” says Lioness.
Coach Wiefman, who spoke late last night, said the team was calm despite the pressure. “When you reach the final, you will be one of the best teams in the tournament. I think we also have a very good team. No one is afraid.
“I think the team was really calm. I think it worked really well. So we have to go back to the hotel we’re staying in and start the training session again, recover there, and do it for us to get. I did something that didn’t happen. Ready. “
Asked in last year’s final if women could win and make up for the men’s team’s euro defeat with Italian hands, she said, “I don’t think men and women should be compared. It’s just one England. ..
“I don’t think there is a difference.”
The English boys have never won a European football championship, and the last major victory in the tournament was the 1966 World Cup.
Regarding the German women’s team, Wiefmann said, “I think it might be a little physical at some point. Germany can play very directly, physically and frankly. That’s our expectation.” ..
Expected record crowd
Wembley tonight is expected to have about 90,000 fans. This is the record for the Euro final.
The previous record was set in the men’s final in 1964 when 79,115 fans saw Spain host the Soviet Union.
Last year’s Wembley men’s final between England and Italy saw 67,000 people, but the crowd was small due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
