Beth Mead looked impressive on the left flank as she troubled the German defence on more than one occasion. Germany struggled to settle in the first ten minutes and had to settle for long-range shots as their best means of attack.

Lucy Bronze also came close to opening the scoring for the home side as she provided an aerial threat from corners. The first half saw both teams battle in the middle of the park and both have handball appeals in the box denied by VAR.

White had England’s best chance of the first half when she ran onto a ball in the box but blasted it just over the bar in the 39th minute.

The German side came out all guns blazing in the second half as they sought to stun the home team. Lina Magull and Tabea Waßmuth had the best chances for the Die Nationalelf.

With Germany slowly starting to boss the game, England sent the Wembley crowd wild as Ella Toone broke the deadlock. Georgia Stanway pinged a beautiful long-range ball which Toone ran onto. She then showed great composure to run at the German defence and chip Frohm from just outside the box to find the back of the net.

Magull almost levelled matters soon after as but her powerful effort rebounded off the crossbar and into the path of Schüller. Schüller then took a shot but it wasn’t dangerous enough to beat Mary Earps. Earps was brilliant between the sticks for England as continued to keep the Germans out.

Magull looked the most likely to score for the German side and she finally did in the 79th minute. Waßmuth found Magull in the box and the midfielder smartly finished from close range.

With neither side able to grab a winner, the game went to extra time.

Extra time was a relatively quiet affair as both teams battled fatigue and pushed through. Chloe Kelly then sent Wembley into delirium as she toe-poked the ball home from a corner to give England the lead in the 110th minute.

The Three Lionesses hung onto the lead for the win to secure their first Euro title.
