England's women's team have won their first major tournament after beating eight-time winners Germany 2-1 after extra time to win Euro 2022.

It is the first football tournament won by a senior England team since the men's 1966 World Cup and the first time Germany have ever been beaten in a women's European Championships final.

In what was a tight affair, Toone put England ahead in the 62nd minute before Magull equalised 17 minutes later.

Finishing 1-1 after the 90 minutes it went to extra time.

Substitute Chloe Kelly then scrambled the ball over the line to score England's winner ten minutes from the end of extra time. Amazingly, it was Kelly's first England goal.

England boss Sarina Wiegman: "Well first of all they're very good football players, they're very good people. The willingness, the commitment, the resilience, the behaviour towards each other.

"The support has been so incredible and most of all the willingness to win so badly."

After her iconic celebration, England's match-winner Chloe Kelly says: "The shirt's staying on!"

She adds: "It's so special to share this moment with such an amazing bunch of girls. I'm proud to wear this badge but I'm even more proud to share the pitch with such an unbelievable group of players and set of staff."

Confetti cannons and giant sparklers greeted England once again lifting the trophy at Trafalgar Square, with boss Sarina Wiegman then encouraged to lift it by herself to more acclaim.

The Lionesses squad sang 'Sweet Caroline' and 'Freed From Desire' - repackaged as "Beth Mead's on fire" - before Rachel Daly grabbed the mic to lead a chorus of 'River Deep, Mountain High'.
