The Ukrainian has so far taken charge of three matches at Euro 2022, kicking-off with Spain’s 4-1 win over Finland before officiating over Austria’s 1-0 victory over Norway and Sweden’s triumph over Belgium.’
She was also he fourth official for England’s semi-final romp over Sweden on Tuesday, and has so far dished out six yellow cards during the tournament.
England will play Germany at Wembley on Sunday, in what is a repeat of the 2009 Euros Final, where on that occasion the German’s run out 6-2 winners in Helsinki.
