England beat Germany 2-1 to win the Women’s Euro title at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, and after many years England’s supporters got a chance to sing “It’s coming home”. The usual 90 minutes had ended on level terms (1–1), but England managed to find the winner in extra time, and the side won the competition 2–1. Ella Toon and Chloe Kelly scored for England. After the win, coach Sarina Wegman was speaking to the media as the players entered the room, dancing and singing “It’s Coming Home”.
Lucy Bronze led the England stars around the press conference room, and then goalkeeper Mary Arps jumped onto the press conference table, and they danced to the beat and beat of the song. The whole episode alienated England coach Wegman.

In front of a record crowd of 87,192 for any match in European Championship history, Kelly kicked a loose ball home to end English football’s 56-year wait for a World Cup or Euro win. England looked ready for victory in 90 minutes when Merle put the hosts in place of Ella Toon’s sublime chip at Froome.
Germany showed remarkable resilience to make a comeback as Lena Magul ran 11 minutes ahead of time.
But for once, England were not to be denied a major success of the tournament.
England will seem to have some luck their timing was 12 months after the Three Lions’ loss on penalties to Italy in the Euro 2020 men’s final, the country’s women got one better.
