England's Lionesses Win 2022 Euro Final Against Germany
Marking England’s first tournament win since 1966.
This year’s Women’s Euro tournament ended with celebration for England’s Lionesses as they won two-one against Germany.
The last game in the tournament kicked off with the first-ever Euro final show which saw musician Stefflon Don performing alongside Becky Hill and Ultra Naté. After the first half ended without any goals scored by either team, the first goal was scored by England’s Ella Toone, followed by Chloe Kelly during extra time.
The Lionesses’ win marks the first time that England has won an international football tournament since 1966 when they won the World Cup against Germany. Attendance for the final game at Wembley stadium broke records too, as the 87,000 fans ended up being the highest figure recorded for a final so far.
Speaking about the final game, Golden Boot Winner and Player of the Tournament Beth Meade said “I can’t believe it. Sometimes football puts you down but bouncing back is the best way and that’s what I’ve done. I’m speechless, I’m still in shock. I am so so proud of this team. I love this team and I love this country.”
Overall, it’s been an impressive journey for England’s women’s team as the Lionesses kicked off the tournament with a win against Austria and went on to win every game they played. In other news, check out our interview with Arsenal and England women’s player Leah Williamson.
