The Lionesses win Euro 2022

Last night saw football finally come back home, as England Women won Euro 2022.

The Lionesses faced Germany in the final of the tournament, which was played out in front of 87,000 spectators at Wembley.

It was a goalless first half until Ella Toone scored a stunning goal in the 62nd minute. The 22-year-old chipped the German keeper, putting the Lionesses 1-0 up.

However, Germany equalised in the 79th minute, taking the game to extra time.

But, in the 110th minute, a goal mouth scramble resulted in Chloe Kelly poking the ball across the line, giving England a 2-1 lead with 10 minutes left.

Germany couldn’t find an answer, and the Lionesses lifted their first European Championship trophy.

It is also the first time a senior England side has lifted a trophy since the men’s team won the World Cup in 1966.
