England beat Germany, 2-1 after extra-time to win Euro 2022 on home soil.

It is the England Women's team's first major trophy and the first victory for the country at a major football tournament since the men's side won the 1966 FIFA World Cup.

Goals from Manchester United's Ella Toone and Manchester City's Chloe Kelly secured Sarina Wiegman's side a deserved victory against eight-time European champions Germany.

And the 2-1 victory was played out in front of a record crowd of 87,192 at Wembley Stadium, beating the highest total recorded in either the men's or women's editions of the tournament.

England head coach Sarina Wiegman has said she "has no secrets" after leading England to their first ever major women's trophy.

She said: "We won the cup. It is unbelievable. It is incredible.

"If you really want to win and become better every single day, that is what I have noticed, and it is incredible, they want to do it together.

"We agreed on a couple of things about behaviour and they weren't just words, we lived it. The game was so tight, there was a little bit of fight in there, but who cares, we won 2-1. We are European champions.

"We broke through barriers against Spain and we had to do it again. I don't have any secrets. I don't think I have realised what is going on, I need some time."

Chloe Kelly stripped off her shirt and wheeled it above her head, sprinting away in front of a 87,192 adoring fans. White sports bra on show, she celebrated England's winning goal at the European Championship in iconic style and so she should. That gesture will become famous for years to come.

It was the moment that England beat Germany 2-1, a time that will change England women's football forever. This was a landmark event, a moment of history, a new beginning of how the women's game should be applauded and revered from now on.

It has not always been that way. Women's football in England has struggled for equality, support and recognition ever since the Football Association banned it in 1921 for 50 years.

England defender Millie Bright has paid tribute to head coach Serena Wiegman for leading the Lionesses to their first ever major women's trophy.

"Serena knows what she wants, how to get it and how to get the best out of us," Bright said.

"That's the most together we've ever been at a tournament. She gives us confidence, she has experience and she's the loveliest person. She's brilliant."

Beth Mead gave a very emotional interview on BBC One earlier this evening. "We're in shock at the moment," she said. :I found my mum, dad and brother straight away and got quite emotional. To celebrate this moment with them was incredible.

"I'm just Beth Mead. That's me. I play football, which is what I love doing and it's a dream come true.

"What a woman! [Wiegman] She was so calm.

She believed in us and we believed in the

team. Here we are."
