England’s Jess Carter Will Face Girlfriend Ann-Katrin Berger In The Euro 2022 Final

England face Germany in the Euro 2022 final on Sunday and there will be two players on opposite sides who know each other better than most.

Chelsea teammates Jess Carter and Ann-Katrin Berger first met one another while playing for Birmingham City, before Carter joined the Blues in 2018.

Berger would follow the 24-year-old to Kingsmeadow the following year and romance blossomed.

The couple have been in a relationship ever since, but will line-up on opposite sides at Wembley.

Carter plays in defence and has featured once for England so far as the Lionesses search for their first-ever major honour.

Berger, meanwhile, is Germany's second-choice goalkeeper and is part of a side who could win their ninth Euro title.

Earlier this year, the duo won the FA Cup with Chelsea at Wembley so someone will have the ultimate bragging rights by the end of play this weekend.

Chelsea took to social media following Germany's 2-1 victory over France and posted a picture of the pair captioned: "Well well well, we'll be seeing you both at Wembley!"

England had already sealed their place in the final with a 4-0 win over Sweden.

Berger likes to keep her private life quiet and her Instagram page reflects that, while Carter enjoys sharing aspects of their relationship to social media.

In an article for the England website back in December, she said: "I think I was – and probably still am – more comfortable than Ann is with publicising our relationship.

"But that is just because Ann is a very private person whereas I am more of a 'the whole world could know and I wouldn't really care' kind of person.

"Over time and because I will say whatever, she has kind of got used to it and goes with it. 

"She doesn't shout from the rooftop about it but equally when she is asked it is not a secret either."
