Germany 2-0 Austria: Magull and Popp make the difference

Baku, July 22, AZERTAC

Lina Magull's first-half strike and an opportunistic Alexandra Popp finish settled an exhausting UEFA Women's EURO 2022 quarter-final in London in Germany's favour, according to the official website of UEFA.

Alexandra Popp has scored in Germany's last four Women's EURO finals games; the only other player to have struck in four consecutive EURO outings is her compatriot Heidi Mohr.

Popp's finish leaves Germany on 99 all-time Women's EURO final tournament goals.

Germany are the first team to have made it to a tenth Women's EURO semi-final.

Austria's Sarah Zadrazil made her 100th appearance; Germany's Kathrin Hendrich celebrated her 50th.

Germany have won all three of their international matches against Austria; prior to tonight, they had prevailed 4-2 (2016) and 3-1 (2018) against their neighbours in friendly games.

Ominously for their next opponents, Germany have won all ten of their Women's EURO matches in England, scoring 30 goals and conceding just three.

Yet to concede in this tournament, Germany have kept nine clean sheets in their last 11 Women's EURO finals matches.
