‘It’s unreal’: England matchwinner Chloe Kelly soaks up Euro 2022 win

England matchwinner Chloe Kelly said she is living the dream after blasting her country to Euro 2022 glory.

Kelly came off the bench and scored a winner in the 110th minute to give the Lionesses a 2-1 win over Germany in the final at Wembley.

After Ella Toone’s regular-time opener was canceled out by Lina Magull, the Manchester City striker fired home from close range and sparked euphoria at the National Stadium as England won their first major tournament.

Kelly was more interested in singing “Sweet Caroline” than answering questions in her television interview, but said it was her dream to grow up.

“Oh my god look at them, it’s amazing, thanks to every single person who has supported us,” she told the interviewer, gesturing to the crowd in the background. “This is unreal… Sweet Caroline!

“It’s amazing, thank you everyone, that’s what dreams are made of, watching women’s football as a young girl. Wow, that’s amazing.”

Kelly’s story is made even more memorable by the fact that she only returned from a severe cruciate ligament injury in April.

She added: “Thank you for everyone who has been a part of my rehab. I always thought I would be here, but to be here and get the win, wow. These girls are incredible. It’s incredible, I just want to celebrate now.”

England’s first success was spearheaded by Sarina Wiegman, who has now become back-to-back European champions after her success with the Netherlands in 2017.

The team continued their jubilant scenes, emphatically crashing Wiegman’s press conference and singing “It’s Coming Home” while dancing around their coach.

The Dutchwoman said: “We won the cup. It’s incredible. It’s incredible. If you really want to win and get better every day, I’ve noticed that and it’s amazing, they want to do it together.

“We agreed on a few things about the behavior and those weren’t just words, we lived it. The game was so close, there was a bit of a struggle, but whatever, we won 2-1. We are European champions.

“We broke barriers against Spain and we had to do it again. I do not have any secrets. I don’t think I realized what’s going on, I need some time.”

After the tournament produced record attendances, including the highest attendances ever seen at a EURO final, England captain Leah Williamson wants the success to mean something in the future.

She said: “The legacy of this tournament is a change in society, it’s everything we’ve done, we’ve brought everyone together, we’ve brought people to games.

“We want them to come to WSL games, the legacy is that this team is a winner and that’s the beginning of a journey.” She described the win as the “proudest moment” of her life.

“I just can’t stop crying,” she said on BBC One. “Something like, we talk and we talk and we talk and we finally got it done. It’s about doing it on the pitch and I’ll tell you what. the children are alright.

“It’s the proudest moment of my life leading up to the day I have kids I suppose. I record everything, every piece of advice was recorded every single second so I can relive it forever. I will experience that for a long time.

“The legacy of this tournament is a change in society, it’s everything we’ve done, we’ve brought everyone together, we’ve brought people to play.”

Beth Mead won the Golden Boot and was named Player of the Tournament 12 months after being left out of Team GB’s Olympic squad for the Tokyo Games. “I can’t believe it sometimes football gets you down but getting back on your feet is the best way and that’s what we did,” she said.

“I’m speechless, I can’t take it all in, I’m still in shock. I can’t believe we won it, I just can’t, it’s crazy. I’m so, so proud of this team. I love this team and I love this country.”
