England defeated Germany to win Women’s Euro 2022© Twitter
Lucy Bronze led the England stars around the press conference room, and then goalkeeper Mary Earps leapt up on the press conference table, and she danced to the song’s beat and rhythm. The entire episode left England coach Weigman in splits.

In front of a record crowd of 87,192 for any match in the history of the European Championships, Kelly prodded home a loose ball from close range to end English football’s 56-year wait for a World Cup or Euro victory. England looked set for victory in the 90 minutes when substitute Ella Toone’s sublime chip over Merle Frohms put the hosts in front.
Germany showed remarkable resilience to bounce back as Lina Magull levelled 11 minutes from time.
But for once, England were not to be denied a major tournament success.
England will feel their time for some luck was due as 12 months on from the Three Lions’ defeat on penalties to Italy in the Euro 2020 men’s final, the nation’s women went one better.
