Meet the Euro 2022 power couple who will face off in the final

Berger, 31, is part of the German squad looking to win a NINTH European title.

While Carter, 24, featured once on the bench for the Lionesses during their historic run to the final.

But on Sunday, the pair will be enemies for 90 minutes, or even 120 if the final ends in extra time or a dreaded penalty shootout.

England defender Carter first met Berger in June 2018 when the German goalkeeper joined her future partner at Birmingham City.

But it wasn’t until the pair moved to Chelsea – Carter in 2018 and Berger a year later – that they first met.

Carter and Berger are now happily in a long-term relationship, but one of them will return home unhappy on Sunday night.

The couple know the venue of tomorrow well, having won the FA Cup with Chelsea on the same ground earlier this year.

And after Germany booked their place in the final with a win over France, Chelsea took to social media, posting a picture of the couple and writing: “Well we’ll see you both at Wembley! “

Carter has previously opened up about her relationship with Berger as part of the Rainbow Laces campaign, and how she hopes talking about their same-sex relationship will encourage others to do the same.

Speaking in December, Carter said: “I think I was – and probably still am – more comfortable than Ann with the publicity of our relationship.

“But that’s just because Ann is a very private person when I’m more like ‘the whole world could know and I don’t really care.’

“Over time and because I will say anything, she kind of got used to it and goes with it. She’s not shouting from the roof about it, but also when asked, it’s not a secret either.

“Not everyone is equally comfortable telling the world who they are with, but I think it’s the same in straight and same-sex relationships.”

Carter suggested publicizing a same-sex relationship might be harder for higher-profile players.

She continued: “I think for a lot of people it might depend on your profile, for example if you’re a bigger name player you might get more scrutiny.

“Also, if your family isn’t as comfortable about it, it might be harder to make it so public.

“So I think it depends on each person’s private situation. And likewise they might just consider it nobody else’s business, so they might not want to say it.

“So there could be a lot of reasons, but whatever the situation, we have to respect each other.”
