BBC to show England women final

Venue: Helsinki Olympic Stadium, Finland Date: 10 September, 1700 BST
BBC coverage: Live video on BBC Two and BBC Sport website, with commentary on Radio 5 live sports extra and text commentary online

England women celebrate
England beat the Netherlands to reach the final in Helsinki

England women's European Championship final against Germany will be available across all BBC platforms on Thursday.

The 1700 BST showpiece at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium will be screened live on BBC2 and the BBC website, where there will also be a text commentary.

It is the first time England women have made a major final for 25 years, since defeat by Sweden in the inaugural European Championships in 1984.

They are hopeful Faye White will be fit despite a dislocated cheekbone.

White suffered the injury in the quarter-final victory over Finland but the England team are confident she can play wearing a protective face mask.

Germany start as favourites, having scored 15 goals and conceded only three in five matches.

Striker Birgit Prinz, Fifa Women's Player of the Year on three occasions, is likely to be a key figure as the Germans bid to make it seven tournament victories in the last eight European Championships.
