Members of the English women’s football team were seen sipping coffees in casual sportswear today as they geared up for Sunday’s showdown with Germany in the Euros final at Wembley Stadium.

Pictured within the 25-acre grounds of their vast Teddington hotel base, The Lensbury Resort, the footballers and their manager could be seen enjoying a sunny stroll, defusing the growing tension of the upcoming final with a round of warm beverages.

The team are just 90 minutes from clinching the European trophy after thrashing Sweden 4-0 in the semi-finals at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane stadium on Tuesday – with the four goals scored by Beth Mead, Lucy Bronze, Alessia Russo and Fran Kirby.

Head coach Sarina Wiegman, 52, joined the Lionesses as they drank down their refreshments, with only three days to go until they walk out of the tunnel before a sold-out crowd at Wembley Stadium on Sunday before the 5pm kick off.

Millie Bright was pictured deep in conversation with someone on the phone, as she and her fellow Lionesses approach the end of a month-long tournament that has kept them living out of hotels and in a state of intensive training.

The German side has already amassed eight European titles, and only twice since 1987 have they not reached the final. 

English Beth Mead has scored six times so far in the tournament, and Germany’s Alexandra Popp has found the back of the net six times too – meaning they are neck and neck in the race for the Golden Boot prize.

The Lensbury has 155 rooms in a variety of styles available to their guests. Its options range from the Dutch Suites to the Deluxe Bedrooms.

The Lionesses who have opted for the Dutch Suite have been staying in the hotel’s largest guest rooms – featuring rich oak panelling, a large separate lounge area and a large double shower room with a massage jet in each room.

Those who have chose the ‘Classic Double rooms’ instead have enjoyed either king, queen or a double bed, ensuite bathrooms and large flat-screen TVs.

These rooms are also located in the main hotel and annex building offering easy access to the 25 acres of gardens, grounds and excellent leisure facilities.

Wiegman's team have also had access two UEFA standard pitches for training in between their fixtures for practising their tactics and set pieces. Pictured: Jill Scott
