England Women make history as Kelly's extra-time goal seals Euros glory

    Chloe Kelly's extra-time goal saw England beat Germany 2-1 and win Euro 2022 in sensational fashion at a packed-out Wembley Stadium.

    In front of a record-breaking crowd of 87,192, Kelly's 110th-minute winner secured England the country's first major international success since the men's team won the World Cup in 1966.

    This is the proudest day of my life," said captain Leah Williamson after lifting the trophy. "The legacy of this tournament is a change in society. We've brought everyone together and we've got people at games. We want people to come to WSL games but the legacy of this team is winners, and it's the start of a journey."

    In a final for the ages, Ella Toone clipped the Lionesses ahead with a superb lob just after the hour mark following a goalless but entertaining first half.

    A superb Keira Walsh pass set up her team-mate, curling the ball around the German defence and into Toone's path. She spotted goalkeeper Merle Frohms off her line and went for the lob, chipping the ball curling past the German stopper to send Wembley into raptures.
