No other team has held a major European football title for anything like the 22 years that Germany reigned as UEFA Women's EURO champions.

First triumphant in 1989 and 1991, Germany lost their title in 1993 but reclaimed it on 26 March 1995, when they beat Sweden in Kaiserslautern. After successful defences in the next five tournaments, they ruled supreme until a quarter-final loss to Denmark on 30 July 2017 – a reign of 8,162 days.

We delve deeper into one of the most incredible runs in European sport.
