Chloe Kelly’s extra-time goal sealed a 2-1 victory as the Lionesses claimed the first major trophy in their history and the first for a senior England side since the 1966 World Cup triumph over West Germany.

…The dramatic contest was watched by a crowd of 87,192 at the national stadium – the biggest-ever attendance for any Euros game, men’s or women’s.

England boss Wiegman was in the middle of her post-match press conference when her jubilant squad burst into the room, singing “it’s coming home” and dancing around the top table, while goalkeeper Mary Earps and defender Lucy Bronze did so on top of it.

The party was set to continue on Monday with Wiegman and the players attending a celebratory event in Trafalgar Square, with up to 7,000 fans able to attend.

Wiegman, who has now won back-to-back Euros after her 2017 success with the Netherlands, said: “I think what we’ve done is really incredible.
