He said: ‘I love England but my heart is with Germany.

‘I really love watching it. Congrats to all the teams involved, it’s a commercial for football.’  

Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses will host their old rivals in London, hoping to win their first major tournament in their history by beating Germany for just the third time ever.
