On Sunday, the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 final took place in London, with host nation England beating Germany to win their first ever international tournament.
As the sun set on a packed Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening, the pitch was awash with confetti and smiles as England beat Germany 2-1 in extra time to secure their first ever international trophy.
Spearheaded by players such as Lucy Bronze, Fran Kirby and Player of the Tournament Beth Mead, England actually had to rely on their bench to win the final as both goals came from substitutes Ella Toone and Chloe Kelly.
The final caps off the month-long competition aimed at celebrating women’s football and crowning its European queens.In England, this victory has led pundits to call for better funding and visibility to be accorded to the women’s game.
Given that the attendance figure of 87,192 was the highest for a European Championship final in both the men's and women's game, their request should not pass on deaf ears.
In Belgium, whose national side were valiantly eliminated in the quarter-finals, the Belgian Scooore Super League is starting in two week's time and now might just be the best time to grab a season ticket.
