England clinch Women’s Euro with 2-1 extra time win over Germany



An extra time strike from forward Chloe Kelly gave England a 2-1
win over Germany in the Women’s European Championship final on
Sunday to claim their first ever major title in front of a record
crowd on home soil, Trend reports citing Reuters.

Substitute Kelly reacted quickest to a loose ball from a corner
in the second period of extra time to give her side the win and
avenge their defeat by Germany in the 2009 Euro final in
Helsinki.

England coach Sarina Wiegman became the first manager to win the
Euros with two different nations having led her native Netherlands
to the title in 2017.
