England women beat Germany in WEURO 2022 final to lift their fisrt major trophy

England are the women EURO2022 champions after a 2-1 victory over favorites Germany.

Substitute Chloe Kelly got the crucial goal in extra time to send a packed Wembley stadium into frenzy .

Ella Toone had earlier come off the bench to score the opener in normal time before Germany’s Lina Magull set up a nervous ending when she equalized in the 79th minute.

The victory comes 56 years after England’s men beat West Germany in the 1966 World Cup final, the only previous major trophy won by a men’s or women’s England senior team.

Meanwhile , England are to open talks with Euro 2022-winning manager Sarina Wiegman over a new contract.

The Football Association is keen to extend a deal that runs until 2025.

Dutchwoman Wiegman only took on the job last September but led England to their first women’s major trophy on Sunday.

“She will have a couple of weeks off. When she gets back, we’ll have a conversation,” said Baroness Sue Campbell, the FA’s head of women’s football.

FA chief executive Mark Bullingham said Wiegman was their “number one target” last year and he hopes she is with England for “a long time”.
