England v Germany on BBC2

Auntie has seen the light and is showing the Women's Euro Cup Final live on BBC2 tomorrow (and on the web if you can iPlayer). The game starts at 5pm and I shall be watching.

I saw England lose 1-0 to Germany in a Euro qualifier about 5 years ago at Crystal Palace. It was a close game with the English players easily matching the Germans for individual skill, unfortunately they were let down by their vision and organisation. It seems to have taken the team quite some time to get round these problems but hopefully they can get it to all come together tomorrow night.

That said, Germany are massive 1/7 favourites to lift the trophy so England at 4/1 must be worth a few patriotic pounds.
