Stadium MK set for WEURO2022 semi-final

Germany take on France for the last spot in Sunday's Final...

27 July 2022

Stadium MK is set to host the second semi-final of UEFA Women's EURO 2022 as eight-time winners Germany face France.

Les Bleues are competing in the last four of this competition for the first time while Die Nationalelf will be looking to secure an ninth title in their last 11 tournament appearances.

The winners will face England in the final at Wembley on Sunday, following the Lionesses’ 4-0 win over Sweden.

Over 28,000 are expected to attend tonight’s game, with the potential for a Stadium MK record crowd should it surpass the 29,669 set for the international fixture between Brazil and Cameroon in 2019.

Kick-off is at 8pm.

Last time out
To secure their semi-final spot, France beat the Netherlands 1-0 in extra time thanks Ève Périsset's penalty. Germany, meanwhile, overcame Austria 2-0 in their quarter-final at Brentford.

Head to head
France are aiming to record successive victories against Germany for the first time, having won 1-0 in a friendly in June 2021. The last two encounters have been settled by a single goal – Germany recorded a 1-0 friendly victory in February 2019.

Les Bleues have won two of the last three meetings between the nations but had managed just one victory in the nine fixtures previous to that (L4 D4) against Germany.

This is the first competitive match between the pair since the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup quarter-final, when Germany progressed 5-4 on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

Die Nationalelf are unbeaten in all four major tournament matches against Les Bleues (W3 D1).

UEFA Women’s EURO history
Martina Voss-Tecklenburg's Germany are aiming to lift the EURO trophy for the ninth time, having been victorious in eight of their ten previous appearances.

They had triumphed in each of the previous six editions of EURO, prior to a 2017 quarter-final defeat by Denmark.

France, meanwhile, are in their seventh EURO. Their quarter-final appearance in this tournament made it four successive last-eight appearances, though their victory against the Netherlands last week took them into the last four for the first time.

Ones to watch: Germany
Svenja Huth - The 31-year-old is one of six Die Nationalelf players to have begun all four matches at EURO 2022. She is the only Germany outfield player to have started all eight of their 2023 World Cup qualifiers too.

Lina Magull - The 27-year-old has managed five attempts on target so far at EURO 2022, more than any other Germany player. The midfielder struck the opening goal in the 2-0 quarter-final success versus Austria and is the only player to open the scoring more than once at this EURO.

Alexandra Popp - The 31-year-old, who has featured in Germany's last two major tournament encounters with Les Bleues, has equalled the record of scoring in four successive UEFA Women's EURO matches. She could become the second German player to hit five goals at a single Women's EURO tournament.

Ones to watch: France
Delphine Cascarino - The 25-year-old struck the only goal as France beat Germany in the last eight of the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. She has registered a top speed of 30.9 kilometres per hour at EURO 2022, slower only than Iceland's Sveindís Jónsdóttir (31.7km/h).

Kadidiatou Diani - The 27-year-old scored the opener in the 2-1 Matchday 2 win versus Belgium. She is one of four France players to have started every game at EURO 2022 and has scored six goals in her last 12 appearances for Les Bleues.

Wendie Renard - The 32-year-old has played the full match in 11 of France's 12 EURO fixtures stretching back to the 2013 edition, missing only the quarter-final defeat by England five years ago through suspension. She was part of the Les Bleues side for their last semi-final match at a major tournament.
