When speaking in the pre-match press conference, Williamson said that she will be ready for the big occasion and her confidence has grown throughout the tournament.

“None of us have been in this situation before, representing England in a EURO final,” Williamson said. “It will be a new one for all of us but what happens in a tournament is that you grow game-by-game.

“The opportunity I have had to lead the team throughout the tournament has given me confidence. I think tomorrow I will be ready for whatever emotions are thrown at us.”

There is a footballing history between England and Germany that runs deep, however, Williamson is looking at the game based on the two teams’ exceptional form.

She said “For the media, it is a fairytale fixture with history behind it but for us, you would never expect to get to a final without playing the best team in the tournament.

“In terms of the journeys that we have both been on, I think we have got the two teams who have had the best tournaments in the final with is the greatest thing. I think it is what we expected, coming up against a team playing great football.”

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