An extra-time goal from Manchester City’s Chloe Kelly sees England’s Lionesses win the Euro 2022 final against Germany.

A goal in extra-time from Manchester City’s Chloe Kelly has seen England’s Lionesses become the Euro 2022 champions today, Sunday, July 31. This is English football’s first major trophy since the other famous victory over German opponents back in 1966, also at Wembley stadium.

Kelly sent the record-breaking 87,192 fans into ecstasy as her strike hit the back of the net with 10 minutes left to play. 

For the sixth match in a row, England manager Sarina Wiegman named an unchanged team for today’s final against the eight-time European Championships winners. Germany meanwhile faced the match without their enigmatic captain Alexandra Popp. The tournament’s joint-top scorer injured herself in the pre-match warm-up, leaving German coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg with a headache.

It took England until the second half to go in front. A goal from Manchester United’s Ella Toone setting the match up for a thrilling climax. A superb long ball from Kiera Walsh allowed Toone to outpace the German defenders and show astounding composure by calmly chipping the ball into the net over the advancing Frohms.

Disappointment loomed when Lina Magull levelled the scores with just minutes to go. Latching onto Wassmuth’s cross she deftly turned the ball into the England net. Incredibly, and showing how solid the Lionesses’ defence has been, that was only their second goal conceded in the whole tournament.

Extra time is always a nervy affair, but when Chloe Kelly’s first shot was blocked on the German goal line, she lost no time in smashing the rebound home to make Wembley erupt into a cauldron of noise.

Russo almost put the game beyond doubt in the closing minutes, but the final whistle blew and English football finally ended 56 years of misery as the Lionesses were crowned Queens of Europe.

Boris Johnson was among the first to congratulate the achievement, tweeting @BorisJohnson:
