‘I hope that it will belong to us’ – Voss-Tecklenburg wants Germany to take Wembley

Germany head coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg acknowledges the fact that Wembley will be full of England fans tomorrow but she wants her side to make the stadium their own by winning UEFA Women’s EURO 2022.

Two of the biggest rivals in international football meet in the final with close to 90,000 fans set to be in attendance, the highest crowd ever for any European Championship final.

Host nation England will have the vast majority of the support inside Wembley but Germany head coach Voss-Tecklenburg wants her side to make the stadium their own come the end of the match.

“We have dreamt of this, a final here against England,” Voss-Tecklenburg said when speaking in the pre-match press conference. “I don’t think there is any bigger game for my players.

“It electrifies football fans – England v Germany has such a great history, everyone is looking forward to it. If we were allowed to dream (about who we could play in the final), we always wanted to play against England and nobody else.

“We know that Wembley will be English but I hope that it will belong to us at the end.”

Germany forward Alexandra Popp is tied at the top of the goalscoring charts with England’s Beth Mead on six goals. Voss-Tecklenburg went on to say that the player is committed to helping her team rather than focusing on the Golden Boot.

She said “The biggest objective for Alexandra is to win the final. She doesn’t care if she scores, she is an absolute team player.

“She scored two goals against France but my favourite moment was in the 85th minute when she ran back to block a ball at the back. That showed the mentality of the player and the collective strength of the team.”

The UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 final between England and Germany kicks-off at 5pm on Sunday evening.
