Both coaches were in charge of different nations at the 2017 finals; Voss-Tecklenburg was Switzerland manager, while Wiegman led hosts the Netherlands to an unexpected victory. Having reached the final with England, she could now become the first foreign coach to steer a team to glory at a Women's EURO, and the first to win the competition with two nations. Wiegman has already become the first coach to win her first ten final tournament games.

A member of Germany's Women's EURO-winning squads in 1989, 1991, 1995 and 1997, Voss-Tecklenburg can follow in the footsteps of her former team-mate Silvia Neid in becoming the second woman to win the competition as both a player and coach. Having led Duisburg to UEFA Women's Cup triumph in 2009 (with Alex Popp among her players), she can also become the first coach to win Europe's top club and international women's competitions.

• No team has yet won a final with a foreign coach, but England's Dutch manager Wiegman could change that.
