England win women’s EURO 2022

Chloe Kelly’s extra-time goal saw England beat Germany 2-1 and win Euro 2022 in sensational fashion at a packed-out Wembley Stadium.

In front of a record-breaking crowd of 87,192, Kelly’s 110th-minute winner secured England the country’s first major international trophy since the men’s team won the World Cup in 1966.

In a final for the ages, Ella Toone clipped the Lionesses ahead with a superb lob just after the hour mark following a goalless but entertaining first half.

A superb Keira Walsh pass set up her team-mate, curling the ball around the German defence and into Toone’s path. She spotted goalkeeper Merle Frohms off her line and went for the lob, chipping the ball curling past the German stopper to send Wembley into raptures.

But eight-time champions Germany were not to be down for long as Lina Magull equalised in the 79th minute. Sydney Lohmann found Tabea Wassmuth inside the area, with the latter’s cross turned home by the midfielder.

The first period of extra-time was a cagey affair with neither side wanting to make an error, but England made the breakthrough with 10 minutes to play. Germany were unable to clear a corner, with Kelly’s own shot coming back to her feet inside the six-yard box. She was there again to turn past Frohms and win England their first major trophy.
