Women’s Euro 2022, Germany 2-1 France: Record-breaking Popp’s double sets up Wembley showdown with England

0

The
Wolfsburg
striker
was
on
target
in
each
of
Germany’s
four
wins
en
route
to
final
four
and
opened
the
scoring
in
Milton
Keynes
with
a
volley
after
40
minutes.

France,
playing
at
this
stage
for
a
first
time
compared
to
a
record
10th
for
Germany,
levelled
through
a
Kadidiatou
Diani
strike
that
hit
the
post
and
went
in
off
Merle
Frohms.

Despite
Germany
being
second
best
for
large
parts
of
the
second
period,
Popp
struck
again
in
the
76th
minute
to
set
up
a
showdown
with
hosts
England
at
Wembley
on
Sunday.

Popp
was
denied
from
a
curled
free-kick
by
a
fine
Pauline
Peyraud-Magnin
stop,
but
there
was
to
be
no
denying
the
in-form
Germany
striker
soon
after.

Svenja
Huth
sent
in
a
cross
from
the
right
and
Popp
got
in
front
of
Eve
Perisset
to
thump
into
the
roof
of
the
net

Germany’s
record
100th
goal
in
the
competition.

France’s
response
arrived
before
half-time,
though,
as
Diani
unleashed
a
shot
from
long
range
and
the
ball
bounced
off
the
post,
hit
the
back
of
a
diving
Frohms
and
crossed
the
line.

Les
Bleues
twice
went
close
to
taking
the
lead
just
after
the
hour
mark,
with
Frohms
saving
Selma
Bacha’s
powerful
shot
and
Wendie
Renard’s
header
from
the
resulting
corner.

Frohms
was
again
required
to
keep
out
Diani
following
a
poor
back-pass
from
Marina
Hegering
as
France
continued
building
momentum.

But
against
the
run
of
play,
Popp
was
left
unmarked
and
powered
Huth’s
cross
past
Peyraud-Magnin,
the
match-winning
goal
allowed
to
stand
after
a
VAR
check
for
offside.
