Chloe Kelly scored the winning goal from a rebound in the second half of extra time after Germany failed to clear a corner. The match had ended 1–1 after 90 minutes at Wembley Stadium with Lina Magull for Germany canceling out Ella Toone’s goal for England.

After the final whistle, the England players danced and the crowd sang their anthem “Sweet Caroline”. The good-natured atmosphere inside the stadium on Sunday contrasted with the violent scenes when the England men’s side lost their European Championship final to Italy at the same stadium a year ago.
