Watch: How England reached the Euro 2022 final

England will look to make football history when they face Germany in the Women's Euro 2022 final on Sunday.

The Lionesses, who have never won a trophy before, are the favourites with bookmakers ahead of the showdown at Wembley.

But eight-time European champions Germany are likely to pose a tough test.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the game.

When is the Euro 2022 final?

The Euro 2022 final between England and Germany will kick off 5pm on Sunday, 31 July.

The game is being played at Wembley Stadium in London, which also hosted the men's Euro final last year.

It will be the Lionesses' first appearance in a Euros final since 2009, when they lost 6-2 to Germany.

If England win, it would end a 56-year wait for a major title in either the men's or women's game.

Sarina Wiegman's side booked their place in Sunday's decider after thrashing Sweden 4-0 in the semi-final on Tuesday.

They are unbeaten in 19 games under Wiegman's tenure, with 17 wins, 104 goals scored and only four conceded.

Can I still get tickets?

All 87,200 tickets for the final have sold out. It will be the biggest ever crowd for a Euro match – men or women – surpassing the 79,115 people who attended the men's 1964 final.

How can I watch it live on TV?

If you didn't manage to get a ticket, BBC One will be showing the game live in the UK. The coverage, led by Gabby Logan, will begin at 4pm on Sunday and finish at 7:45pm.

Viewers can also stream the action on the BBC Sport website or iPlayer, or listen to radio coverage on BBC 5Live or Sounds.

Are there any public screenings of the game?

The final will be screened for thousands of fans at London's Trafalgar Square and Manchester's Piccadilly Gardens.

Both events are non-ticketed and attendance is first come, first served.

Will there be a bank holiday if England win?

The government has refused to give workers an extra bank holiday if England lift the trophy.

It came after Labour leader Keir Starmer called for a "proper day of celebration" to mark what would be a "truly historic achievement".

Lib Dem leader Sir Ed Davey supported the proposal, telling the Mirror: "If football comes home then the country must be allowed to celebrate it."

A government spokesman said: "The whole country will be roaring them on and hopefully watching a famous victory against Germany on Sunday evening. We will certainly be celebrating their success.

"However, the current pattern of public and bank holidays is well established and while an additional bank holiday may benefit some communities and sectors, the cost to the economy of an additional bank holiday is considerable."
