Adele and the Spice Girls were among the famous faces praising the Lionesses’ “girl power” following their Euro 2022 victory.
England beat Germany 2-1 after extra time, securing the first major tournament title for any England team since 1966.
Following their historic win, award-winning singer Adele described the achievement as a “game changer”.
She shared a photo of the England women’s team celebrating their win on Instagram and wrote: “You made it!! It’s back home!!
“Congratulations @lionesses what a game changer!! So proud.”
The Spice Girls praised the Lionesses for their “schoolgirl strength” when they posted a photo of the team celebrating their victory on Twitter.
The British girl group captioned the post: “Congratulations @Lionesses True #GirlPower right there.”
David Baddiel says he can finally say the lyrics “it’s come home” from his classic Three Lions football song.
The comedian recorded the football song with Frank Skinner and the rock band Lightning Seeds in 1996.
After winning Euro 2022, Baddiel tweeted: “Home. In fact, it’s back home. A sentence I thought I would never write. I went. Thank you Lionesses. “

“So happy for my children to experience an English football team winning a major tournament.”
While comedian Miranda Hart revealed she was emotional by the win, writing: “Crying. It’s brilliant. Very important. Too emotional to say more.
