Young supporters and footballers told LondonWorld it was a “massive inspiration” for women’s sport.

However the Lionesses admitted they had been enjoying the celebrations.

Captain and Arsenal star Williamson said: “We’ve partied more than we’ve actually played football in the last 24 hours.”

When asked about how she was feeling at the final whistle, Williamson added: “Relief - we were all pretty tired,

“This team likes to work hard but we definitely like to party harder, so that’s what I was thinking about at the final whistle.

“That party is not going to stop.”
