Women´s Euros: Wiegman sticks with White over Russo, Germany also unchanged

    Both Sarina Wiegman and Martina Voss-Tecklenburg have resisted temptation to tamper with their starting XIs as they have named unchanged teams for Sunday’s Women’s Euro 2022 final between England and Germany.

    There had been speculation that Lionesses manager Wiegman would give in-form Alessia Russo a first start of the campaign, with the striker third in the scoring charts with four goals from the bench.

    However, Wiegman has instead kept faith with Ellen White, who has scored just twice in five starts but is England’s all-time top goalscorer.

    England have named the same team from the start in all six of their matches at the finals, making them the first team in either a men’s or women’s European Championship to name an unchanged starting XI in every game from the group stages to the final.

    Speaking to BBC Sport on the Wembley pitch ahead of the game, White said: “I can’t really describe it. This noise is insane. It’s so special. I’m going to soak in every moment.

    “I’ve said so many times how special this group is. We can’t wait for this game and to hopefully make this nation as proud as possible.”

    Germany coached Voss-Tecklenburg has also named the same team again, keeping faith with the side who beat France 2-1 in the semi-finals.

    Beth Mead and Alexandra Popp will both be looking to find the net as they seek outright ownership of the Golden Boot, with six goals apiece heading into the final.
