England fans might be sporting a few sore heads this morning after the Lionesses ended 56 years of hurt with a 2-1 victory over Germany.

Crowds erupted at the full time whistle and as Chloe Kelly poked in an extra time winner to bring football home and send the nation into delirium.

Fans celebrated well into the night at venues across the country, with Sweet Caroline and Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home) reverberating around Wembley and wild scenes across London lasting for hours.

Despite the drizzle, a number of fans took a celebratory dip in the fountains at Trafalgar Square as the big screens confirmed Sabrina Wiegman’s team had won the competition thanks to Kelly’s late finish and Ella Toone’s stunning chip.

Another celebration is planned this morning for England’s undoubtedly-bleary-eyed squad, who will appear at 11am in Trafalgar Square.

England’s team were also captured dancing together on the team bus and in the changing room after the emotional victory in front of a record crowd at Wembley.

Horns tooted and chants of ‘It’s coming home’ could be heard after the final whistle.

Among the crowd in Trafalgar Square was Samantha Isaac, 38, who branded the match ‘a historic moment’.

The Essex mum said: ‘It’s really important for women and girls to get this level of success and this many people here.

‘I’m over the moon, they have worked so hard.’

Her daughter Evie Isaac, nine, who plays football, said it was ‘exciting’.

Later today, up to 7,000 supporters will be able to celebrate with the players at a daytime event hosted by veteran Lioness Alex Scott in Trafalgar Square.
