I just love that we play attacking football. It's so much more exciting than watching the men. The defence is so calm and solid that they can get forward confidently at every opportunity. So much fun to watch. I hope Southgate is taking notes. 

 

First time watching last night, but I thought England's defence, specifically the right back, was abysmal and constantly caught out of position.

Hopefully it will be Germany winning tonight as we have a 100% record of beating them in a major football tournament final at Wembley.

Even if England win on Sunday, its still 56 years without trophy for the England team in Qatar, unless you want to start saying the USA team in Qatar have won 4 World Cups

extra final tickets got released at 10am -  after joining the queue to get into the site at 9:35 when I got the email, I was finally given access to the site at 11:15ish, about half an hour after they sold out.

It's good news really that the women's team have sold out Wembley!

Yeah, she kept trying to knock it past the winger and failing, leaving the defence completely exposed.

I didn't mean it to sound that way, it was an amazing achievement to get to the final and very nearly win, I just dislike negative football, I understand the tactics but we have such brilliant attacking players it feels like they're wasted sometimes. Just a preference, I'll always support the team. 

 

Most international trophy winners are boring to watch. France have one of the strongests attacking lineups in national team history and are boring most of the time. Italy in the euros were the outlier, but them not qualifying for the WC perhaps shows us that they got lucky.

 

England have made themselves extremely hard to beat and that's 100% the way to go in international football.

 

I'd love to see Klopp or Pep manage international sides, to see if they could gradually change the landscape, but I suspect that in knockout football teams will always priorotise not conceding over scoring. It's very different in league football when the threat of a draw and two points dropped exists, which pushes the incentive onto scoring goals and leaving the defence a little more exposed.

 

I actually think Mourinho might be a better national coach than Klopp or Pep would be, for reasons above.

Superb from the Lionesses, not just in attack. The ovation for Fran Kirby when she was substituted was thoroughly deserved, and also I want to point out the way Russo tracked back to help out the defence.

 

Keep it unchanged for the final, continue to be positive and the goals will come.

 

Peak audience of 9.3 million last night and already over 2 million iPlayer streams.

I am so undecided on tonight. I want Germany to go through, but France Vs England feels like a better opportunity for England to win as Germany know how to win this competition.

The ticket lottery was a fiasco. I had a code that was meant to be entered, but didn't get a second email with the right link in it. Consequently only got to the portal at about 11.40am and it was only showing for tonight's game? 

 

Absolute mess. Good to see the touts are doing well though, £250 minimum per ticket and a £120 booking fee? Yes please! 

 

Gutted not to get them, will try for the German FA's release in the morning but don't expect any joy.

It's a shame they don't have any kind of loyalty scheme for these tournaments so those who attend group games get priority access. 

 

We got lucky thanks to @Ork1927but it shouldn't be like that

A lot of players losing their footing, or where the ball is and it's all a bit sloppy. Germany have had the better of the play, but it's pretty poor quality so far.
