The moment the match finished, the 87,192 fans watching at Wembley burst into song in phenomenal scenes.

And there were tears of joy as England finally claimed their astonishing victory.

Supporters who flocked to boozers early this afternoon to cheer on the team, who have tonight made women’s football history, threw pints in the air as the match ended.

Those who couldn’t get a ticket but still wanted to be near the action have flocked to Boxpark in Wembley, which is full to the rafters of fans celebrating.

The girls have turned around England’s fortunes after the Lionesses heartbreakingly lost out to Germany in the final of Euro 2009 with a crushing 6-2 defeat.

But a stunning tournament has seen the England team soar to a win, catapulting women’s football to new heights.

Their courage has secured the first major trophy for the women’s team.

The victory is also be the first football honor for the nation since the men’s 1966 World Cup win.

It was initially predicted that Brits would spend £46.1million in boozers today with 8.7million pints downed – although that’s now likely to be small-fry after the win.

An all-women RAF crew performed a fly-past above Wembley at 4.57pm, immediately after the national anthems were played.

The final is expected to be the most-watched telly event of the year with a record-breaking 19.5 million viewers.

The heroic Lionesses have inspired a generation of girls with their incredible campaign to the Euro 2022 final.

Back-heeling heroine Alessia Russo and teammates, Leah Williamson, Beth Mead and Millie Bright have become household names thanks to their stunning campaign.

The FA now expects 120,000 more girls to be playing the sport by 2024 due to England’s success.

Princess Charlotte led support for the team today in a heartwarming message with dad Prince William.

She said: “Good luck, I hope you win. Bye”
