2-1 win over France – Double Pop: Germany follows England to the European Nations Cup final – Sport

  • Germany beat France 2-1 in the semi-finals of the Women’s European Championship in Milton Keynes and advanced to the final.
  • Alexandra Pope scored the two goals of Germany and is the woman of the match.
  • In the final on Sunday (live on SRF) Germany meet hosts England at Wembley.

Her coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg referred to her affectionately as a “head beast” after her second European Championship match against Spain. Now, her high ball prowess has made her become the match master in the semi-final against France. We are talking about the German striker Alexandra Pope.

With her header to make it 2-1 in the 76th minute, she secured her team a place in the final. After the situation was cleared up, Bob started again, took a lead and climbed a floor higher than France centre-back Greg Mbok. The 31-year-old’s header fell, then the ball swayed into the net. Germany finally cheered for the European Championship final.

record extended

The German captain had made the score 1-0 – also after a cross. Subtly using a shot, she scored the opening goal in the 40th minute after the Germans had had more of a match before. European Championship debutant Popp scored in each of her first 5 matches of the final round – and expanded her record. No player scored in the first 4 matches of the European Championship. In addition, no player was able to score in the first 5 matches of a major tournament.

However, the response of the French was not long in coming. Cadidato Diani gathered courage after 5 minutes and hit the post. Then the ball hit the back of goalkeeper Merle Frohms and from there to the goal to become 1-1. The goal came with the break whistle and gave France a boost in the second half. The French had better chances to score 2-1. Wendy Renard, for example, was almost trending in bob style (63rd place). But Bob’s strength and determination in her 59th national jersey goal (119 games) should decide the match in the end.

8 times European champion or the home team?

In the final, the Germans will meet England at Wembley and thus the second team, which was very convincing. The English also won all the matches and the goal difference was 20:1. The Germans, who have already lifted 8 European Championship titles in the past, can still use Popp at his best.
