Four Gunners taste Euro 2022 glory

Leah Williamson lifts the European Championship trophy

Four of our stars are celebrating tonight after England defeated Germany 2-1 at Wembley to win Euro 2022.

Lionesses skipper Leah Williamson got her hands on the silverware after Chloe Kelly's extra-time strike created history, as England claimed their first ever major women's international trophy.

Williamson played all 120 minutes of the triumph, while Beth Mead played 64 minutes before giving way to the matchwinner, and Nikita Parris came on the dying stages to help see her team over the line.

They, as well as Lotte Wubben-Moy who was an unused substitute, carved their name into English football folklore in front of 87,192 - the largest attendance for a European Championships finals for either men or women.

The Three Lions took the lead when Ella Toone netted a brilliant chip on 62 minutes, before Germany responded though Lina Magull to send the game into an additional 30 minutes. However, Kelly stabbed the ball home following a corner with 10 minutes remaining and the hosts held firm to allow Williamson to become the first England women's captain to lift a major honour.

Speaking post-match to the BBC, Williamson said: "I just can't stop crying! With something like this, we talk and we talk and we talk, and we finally did it. We did it on the pitch and I'll tell you what, the kids are alright!

"It's the proudest moment of my life - until the day I have kids I suppose! I'm going to lap it up. Every piece of advice I got was to take every single second of it in because you're going to want to relive it over and over. I'll be reliving that for a long time."

There was also further prizes for Mead, whose six goals during the competition saw her claim the Golden Boot and Player of the Tournament accolades.

“I can’t believe it, sometimes football puts you down but bouncing back is the best way and that is what we have done," she said during the celebrations.

“I am speechless, I can’t take it all in, I am still in shock. I can’t believe we’ve won it, I just can’t, it’s mad.

"I am so, so proud of this team. I love this team and I love this country.”

A huge congratulations to all four of our triumphant Lionesses!
