England vs Germany, Euro 2022 final player ratings: Mary Earps shines as substitutes steal the show again


Lauren Hemp

Was taken off the ball far too many times under pressure from Magull and Gwinn, so unable to give much effect to her superior pace. But she got stuck, kept her head and had an unparalleled pace of work, never ran out of gas and blocked a late German shot in extra time. 8

Fran Kirby

Her beautiful cross to White in the third minute got England off to a flying start, but was much muscled off the ball and found it difficult to make the impact she is capable of. 6

Beth Mead

Mead walked away with the Golden Boot thanks to Alexandra Popp who never got on the field through injury, and would have gotten her sixth assist with a perfect cut to White who missed. 7

Ellen White

White earned a pretty hard yellow for a kick at Dabritz and got involved in the raucous action throughout. She gave goalkeeper Frohms a cheeky push, which made the German look up to her. For all her physical presence, she was regularly outpaced and missed the first half chance to skype her shot over the bar when Mead set her up so perfectly. 6

Alessia Russo 6

Didn’t have the immediate impact we’ve seen in previous matches and her legs started to look heavy when the Germans doubled her down. She got herself into enough positions, but the standout opportunity never came.

Ella Show 9

Toone’s goal was perfection. She timed her run to stay onside, sprinted away with the ball, and under pressure from Hendrich, she dipped the ball. It hung in the air for hours, but when it hit the back of the net, her storm-ridden celebration summed up exactly what that meant.

Chloe Kelly 9

Kelly’s impact was minimal in this tournament, but she purposely came off the bench in this final. Made a crucial distance from a German corner and brought her pace forward, making a few breakaway runs just as England needed to break their opponents’ rhythm. Then came the moment when she lunged to desperately push the winner in and have her Brandi Chastain sports bra moment.
