#WU17EURO final preview: Germany v Spain

Germany have been on a "rollercoaster ride of emotions" en route to another final against a Spain side who are approaching the game with caution.

The same fixture which got the ball rolling in this year's tournament in the Czech Republic (Germany won 4-1) will also conclude it in Plzen on Sunday. Germany are bidding for a record sixth title with Spain aiming to lift the trophy for the fourth time.

Watch highlights of the 2016 final

Sydney Lohmann, Germany captain
Of course we're really looking forward to it. Playing in a European Championship final is a dream for all of us and we can't wait. It's Spain again and we've had some great games against them in the past. We're two great teams so I expect a really good, tight game.

Anouschka Bernhard, Germany coach
We're really looking forward to this final, although maybe not so much having to face Spain again! It's going to be another really exciting game between two teams on a par with each other. We've come through a rollercoaster ride of emotions. It started off in qualifying, which was really tight for us, and then we made it here and we had the penalty shoot-out a few days ago, which was really tough on the nerves!

Qualifying round: bye
Elite round: Portugal 6-1, Iceland 3-0, Sweden 1-1 (Group 6 winners)

Spain celebrating reaching the final

Laia Aleixandri, Spain captain
Of course it's the final that we were really looking forward to and we have been working hard to have the chance to win this tournament, but we know full well that we're up against a very strong side. We have got to stick to playing our own style. We remember last year's final. We all know how it ended, but tomorrow is a new game and I have confidence in my team-mates.

María Antonia Is, Spain coach
It's great for everybody to be in a European Championship final and I think the two best sides have made it here. It's a repeat of last year's final, but we of course hope there will be a different outcome. The girls are excited. We will play with a lot of humility, knowing we are up against the defending champions and a side who beat us in the group stage.
