England took the lead in the 62nd minutes, when Manchester United’s Ella Toone who was introduced into the game in the 52nd minutes cooly lofted the ball over Merle Frohms from Keira Walsh’s superb through ball.
Germany then fired back just 10 minutes before the end of the regulation 90 through Lina Magull and in truth, an equaliser was more than deserved.
Chloe Kelly first ever International goal in the extra-time gave England a maiden Women’s European Championship title.
Lionesses’ head coach Sarina Wiegman has dedicated the historic Euro 2022 championship to the memory of her sister, who passed away a month before the Championship.
