LONDON: England made history by winning their first major women's championship against longtime rivals and eight-time champions Germany in the dramatic Euro 2022 final at Wembley.

With ten minutes of added time left, Chloe Kelly tapped home a loose ball from a corner to whip the boisterous record crowd of 87,192 into a frenzy.

In a moment of sheer happiness, she waited for confirmation of the goal before removing her shirt and waving it over her head as she was being carried by her teammates.

Sarina Wiegman's team demonstrated that they could handle anything a powerful and tough German team threw at them on a significant day in English football history.

Before Germany's Lina Magull's 79th-minute equaliser, Ella Toone had earlier scored the game's first goal off the bench to give the match an early lead.

As the significance of their accomplishment set in at full-time, there were scenes of celebration in the spectators and an outburst of emotion from the players on the field.

The final was billed as a showdown between the two top teams in the championship, and for the most part, that was true. Nevertheless, the largest audience to watch a men's or women's Euros final got their money's worth.
