But the one thing everyone has not mentioned is Germany lost their best player in the warm up
and if Pop had played I honestly think the result could have been different
Could of, Would of, Should of. We played our game and won, Sorry the Germans lost their main person but hey, Them's the breaks, Can't say they would have won with her, We're Women's Euro 2022 Champs and they're not.

I said in my view it could have been different not anyone else's. Yes those are the breaks in football but if you lose your best player just before kick off it has to effect your planning and if you take Harry Kane out of the men's team it makes a difference. On this site everyone is going on about if we lose Sam to injury we don't have a plan B. So its the same at every level lose a main person it changes to game.

I'm saying that shit happens, Teams lose players through injury all the time and they adapt and get on with it, If they lose the manager or other players don't say it was because we lost a player to injury, Nombe and Stubbs were injured and out for us last season at various times, It was a bugger but we adapted, Other players stepped up, Didn't do us any harm? What you have to ask is why the German's didn't do the same.

Agree with this, I felt England rode their luck a bit in the game against Spain too where they were outplayed for the majority of the game.

Generally to win a tournament you need these breaks to go for you and thankfully for England they did.

I was at Wembley on Sunday and it was a good game of two good evenly matched teams. They play hard and fair (at the moment) but as the game progresses I am sure the same will happen as it has in the men's game as more money is involved. But the one thing everyone has not mentioned is Germany lost their best player in the warm up

England have been without their Captain and centre back Steph Houghton all year. Injuries are part of the game.
