England's Lionesses celebrate after Euro 2022 victory

STORY: “What we've done for women and young girls that can look up and aspire to be us,” said team captain Leah Williamson.

"They're very, very good football players, they're very, very good people,” said Sarina Wiegman, England women's team coach and manager.

“The willingness, the commitment, the resilience, the behavior towards each other, the support has been so incredible and most of all the willingness to want to win so badly.”

Wiegman became the first manager to win the Euros - men's or women's - with two different nations having led her native Netherlands to the title in 2017. She was appointed England boss in September last year and the side has not lost since.

An extra time strike from forward Chloe Kelly gave England a 2-1 win over Germany in the Women's European Championship final on Sunday (July 31) to claim their first ever major title in front of a record crowd on home soil.
