Germany will take on England in the Women's European Championship final at Wembley Stadium after they beat France in Wednesday night's semi-final.

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg's side, who are aiming to bring home a ninth title in the tournament’s history, took the lead after some great play from record-breaker Alexandra Popp.

The 31-year-old VfL Wolfsburg forward volleyed home in the 40th minute to become the first player to score in five consecutive women’s Euros matches.

As a result of her goalscoring heroics, Popp has matched Michel Platini's record for France at the 1984 men's Euros.

But four minutes later, France equalised when Kadidiatou Diani’s effort smashed against the post before hitting goalkeeper Merle Frohms and going in.

It was a setback for the Germans but they continued to show promising signs throughout the second-half and in the 76th minute, the prolific Alexandra Popp scored another to make it 2-1.

The experienced forward managed to head it home from a great cross. What a tournament she is having.

France threatened late on but tournament favourites Germany will come up against Sarina Wiegman's Three Lions in Sunday's final.

England secured a place in Wembley's showpiece clash after goals from Beth Mead, Lucy Bronze, Alessia Russo and Fran Kirby secured a 4-0 win against Sweden on Tuesday.

Wiegman says England are ready to rewrite the history books in Sunday's final.

"We said before the tournament and throughout that we want to inspire the nation, I think that's what we're doing and making a difference," she said after the full-time whistle.

"The whole country is proud of us and even more girls and boys will want to play football."

She added: "We have confidence in this team, our players stay calm and stick with the plan. We spoke about scenarios and sometimes things go well and sometimes things don't.

"We can count on each other and our task and then come back into the team."

Who will come out on top?
