The UEFA Women's Euro 2022 live streams have reached their conclusion, and we can now look forward to a final with plenty of history behind it: England vs Germany at Wembley stadium.

The tournament is airing for FREE in many European countries, but don't worry if you're on holiday while it's on — because you can watch UEFA Women's Euro 2022 live streams from anywhere with a VPN (opens in new tab).

UEFA Women's Euro 2022 live streams: TV schedule, dates

The UEFA Women's Euro 2022 started July 6.
Final game (Sunday, July 31): England vs Germany
Time 5 p.m. BST / 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT
► FREE LIVE STREAMS —  BBC iPlayer (opens in new tab) (U.K.)
► U.S. — ESPN via SlingTV (opens in new tab), ESPN Plus
► Watch anywhere — Try ExpressVPN 100% risk free (opens in new tab)

Both sides have every reason to believe they can win it. England have home advantage plus a growing belief having dispatched pre-tournament favorites Sweden 4-0 in the semis and, earlier in the competition, dark horses Norway by 8-0. They've only conceded once, have scored 20 times and have players such as Beth Mead, Keira Walsh, Fran Kirby and the irrepressible Alessia Russo in superb form.

Then again, Germany can say much the same thing. They've also conceded just the one goal, while scoring 13 of their own. Star striker Alexandra Popp got two more in the 2-1 semi-final victory over France to take her tally to six for the tournament, level with Mead. Stop her and England will have a chance.

There'll be a sell-out crowd in London for the game, with all 87,200 tickets having been snapped up as Euro 2022 mania grips Britain. Both teams are unchanged for the final, which means Russo is on the bench once more for England. Here's how they line up:

England: Earps, Bronze, Bright, Williamson, Daly, Stanway, Walsh, Kirby, Hemp, White, Mead.

Germany: Frohms, Gwinn, Hendrich, Hegering, Rauch, Magull, Oberdorf, Dabritz, Brand, Popp, Huth.

We'll find out what happens next in the England vs Germany live stream, with the game due to kick off at 5 p.m. BST / 12 p.m. ET today (Sunday, July 13).

So read on and we'll show you how to watch UEFA Women's Euro 2022 live streams wherever you are.

For instance, a Brit who's currently in the U.S. could watch the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 live streams on BBC iPlayer, even though they're not in the U.K. 

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

UEFA Women's Euro 2022 — who are the favorites?

Sweden

Ranking: 2

Overview: The Swedes go into this tournament as the highest-ranked team and have realistic hopes of winning Euro 2022. They were runners-up in the Olympic final last year and could easily go all the way this year.

Star player: The veteran midfielder Caroline Seger, now 37, who has an incredible 220 caps for the national side. 


France

Ranking: 3

Overview: On the face of it, the French have every right to be considered one of the favorites for the tournament: they qualified without conceding a goal and while scoring 44 of them, and have won 14 consecutive internationals since April last year. But they've never been beyond the quarters in a Euros and face a tough draw. 

Star player: Goalscored extraordinaire Marie-Antoinette Katoto.


Netherlands

Ranking: 4

Overview: As the 2017 Euro champions on home soil and runners-up in the 2019 World Cup final, the Dutch have to be counted among the strong favorites for England 2022. The departure of coach Sarina Wiegman to England was a huge loss, but they undoubtedly have the talent to go all the way once again.    

Star player: Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema has scored 92 goals in 108 appearances. That's pretty decent!


Germany

Ranking: 5

Overview: Germany have by far the best Euros record of any side, winning eight out of the nine tournaments played between 1989 and 2013. They also won the World Cup in 2003 and 2006, and the Olympics in 2017 — so there's no doubting this team has pedigree. But they've gone out in the quarter-finals of the last two major tournaments, and may struggle to qualify from a tough group.

Star player: The skilful midfielder Sara Däbritz


Spain

Ranking: 7

Overview: Barcelona players dominate the Spanish national side, and they've taken this impressive team to new heights recently. Though ranked 7th in the world, they're widely seen as favorites for the tournament and with good reason — they scored 48 goals and conceded just one in qualifying. However, the loss through injury of arguably the world's best player, Alexia Putellas, on the eve of the Euros has severely hit their chances.

Star player: It would undoubtedly have been the superb Putellas, but an ACL injury has ruled her out. Instead, look to 20-year-old forward Clàudia Pina to step up.


England

Ranking: 8

Overview: Though England's ranking has dropped a little lately, the combination of home form, a settled squad under manager Sarina Wiegman and the rise of the Women's Premier League should combine to take England to the semi-finals at least. 

Star player: Take your pick from record goalscorer Ellen White, captain Leah Williamson, Manchester City winger Lauren Hemp and Barcelona's Lucy Bronze.
