Records

  • France, now within one of Germany's six Women's U18/WU19 titles, reached a record tenth final, one ahead of Germany (who were also runners-up in the 1999 four-team round-robin).
  • This was the first time since 2013 that Spain did not reach the final.
  • France's Vicki Becho is the youngest-ever winner, and was the first 15-year-old to score in the WU19 finals since Ada Hegerberg in 2011 (the youngest scorer since Jordan Nobbs in 2008).
  • Including qualifying, Germany scored 56 goals and conceded just six in 11 games: eight wins, two draws and their final defeat.
  • Shekiera Martinez's goal in the semi-finals for Germany added to her nine at the Women's U17 EURO last year make her only the fourth player to reach ten goals in UEFA women's youth final tournaments after Elena Danilova (Russia, 17), Lucía García (Spain, 11) and Kyra Malinowski (Germany, 10).
