England vs. Germany live updates and highlights from UEFA Women's EURO 2022 final
1hr 30mins to kickoff: The first big question of the day is whether Sarina Wiegman will name an unchanged team for the sixth match running. If she does, they would be the first team in European Championship history (men’s and women’s) to name the same starting line-up in every game from the group stages to the final. We're expecting team news in about half an hour.
1hr 45mins to kickoff: So yes, Germany are in their ninth Women's EURO final - and they've won all eight they've previously contested.
England, on the other hand, are in their third. They lost the first ever EURO, back in 1984, on penalties, and then were roundly beaten 6-2 by Germany in 2009.
2hrs to kickoff: Hello and welcome to The Sporting News' live coverage of the UEFA Women's EURO 2022 final! It's England vs. Germany at Wembley and we'll soon be finding out if football really is coming home. Standing in the Lionesses' way, though, are eight-time champions Germany - in their ninth final.
Manchester United transfer news, live! Latest reports, rumors, updates
Manchester United transfer news is always a busy industry in the summer months and this summer will see it at full volume under new manager Erik ten Hag. Again, not great vibes around Ronaldo right now. That said, the report states that ETH could hand Ronaldo the captaincy and wants him to lead a new era at Old Trafford. We have no doubt that Ronaldo will end up in MLS one day, and probably in Miami, but right now it seems like he will remain in Manchester.
Stay tuned for team updates shortly.

England vs. Germany predicted lineups
Wiegman has not changed her starting lineup at all this tournament, so her team may already be clear.
England predicted lineup: Earps (GK) — Bronze, Bright, Williamson, Daly — Mead, Walsh, Stanway, Hemp — Kirby, White.
Martina Voss-Tecklenburg had to make a change for the semifinal with Klara Buhl absent through Covid-19, so teenager Jule Brand might continue in her place.
