    Die Nationalelf have won this competition eight times and will feel confident they can do so again but France are one of the best sides around at the moment.

    However, Les Bleues needed extra time to overcome defending champions the Netherlands in the quarter-finals, so those extra minutes and less recovery time could play its part.

    Either way, one of these two will be playing at Wembley on Sunday against England or Sweden.

    Germany v France: Team news

    Germany boss Martina Voss-Tecklenberg has a fully fit squad to choose from after they came through unscathed against the Dutch.

    The likes of Svjena Huth and Alexandra Popp are expected to be involved as Germany look to reach another final.

    Meanwhile, Corinne Diacre made several changes for France in the quarter-finals, so she could decide to stick with the same players or switch to the ones who helped them in their final group game.

    But again, they have no injury concerns, so we should see two top teams going for it on Wednesday night.

    Germany v France: What has been said?

    Germany ace Popp after the win over Austria: “It was a very intense game – Austria was very hard to play against. I’m happy to finish my fourth goal and happy and proud of the team.

    “At the beginning we were not the top favourite and now we’ve shown all the world where we are. I think the team spirit is very important for us and that’s the point where we’re so strong and we hope the history has not ended.

    “We’re very happy to have very many fans here. We need the spirit, the support and that’s a very good feeling. We also feel the support from Germany – we’ll give our all to get to the final.”

    France manager Diacre: “We have been rewarded for our effort.

    “We are here to build history – the players and staff want to make history for ourselves and there is still a bit of a way to go.

    “This group is doing well, we have a semi-final to prepare for now, calmly, we will savour this moment and getting through and we are taking it step by step as always.

    “We have reached a new level but that is not the end for us, we really want to reach the final. This squad wants to achieve something together, and that is our strength.”
