Euro 2022 victory: Everything you need to know about joining the England victory parade in Trafalgar Square

The Lionesses will be celebrating their Euro 2022 victory with fans in Trafalgar Square later today.

More than 7,000 football loving fans will be allowed to join the celebrations at the heart of the city in what will be a first-come-first-serve event in London today.

The Three Lionesses squad, which made history by winning the country’s first major football title in 56 years, will celebrate the triumph with fans at Trafalgar Square today (Monday, August 1).

The Lionesses, who did what no one else has been able to do beating favourites Germany in a European Women’s Championship final, will mix with up to 7,000 fans in an event that is free to everyone  and will start at 11am this morning.

Sarina Wiegman and her record-breaking Lionesses will open up with the fans, answering questions before lifting the trophy they deservedly won at Wembley on Sunday evening.

BBC One have also said they will broadcast the event from 12.30pm for those who will not be able to make it and it is expected to to be hosted by the ever-green Alex Scott as the nation gears up to celebrate the roaring Lionesses.

Lionesses capture the heart of a nation with Wembley victory

The Lionesses made sure they wrote their name in the history books by winning their first major women’s tournament in style.

Playing against five-time winners Germany is always a tough task - but playing them in a final is a whole different game, and the Lionesses proved once again that they were built for something special with a win that struck through the heart of the nation and will never be forgotten.

Everyone on the England team was special but the greatest story will be told by substitute Chloe Kelly who poked home the winner in extra time.

She had missed the last 11 months with an ACL injury, but all the frustrations will now be replaced by the excitement and pride of scoring the winning goal at the Euros.

Ella Toone had earlier on opened the scoring before Germany, one of the best teams in the history of the women’s game, equalised through Lina Magull to set up a nervous ending and take the game to extra time.

England had shown grit, determination and a spirit that is mostly seen in champions and they had to hold their breath, wave the German pressure and momentum before grabbing the winner that sealed the victory on home soil.
