Football Has Finally Come Home

After an agonizing fifty-six year wait for a major trophy, Sabrina Weigman’s Lionesses delivered iconic scenes as England defeated their great rivals Germany at Wembley Stadium on the evening of July 31. Sarina Weigman joined Sir Alf Ramsey as the only England manager to have won a piece of major silverware and cemented her place as a legend in English football. 

The game fittingly went to extra time with the scores locked at a goal apiece. As the nation bit their nails in worry, Chloe Kelly poked home the winner to send Wembley into a frenzy and end any second-thoughts people may have had about the game’s outcome. 


LORD PING: FOR OPINIONATED PLAYERS


Victory For The Women’s Game

England has been long-ridiculed as a country with the tendency to ‘bottle it’ in important games and let golden opportunities pass them by - but those critics were silenced last night. The victory will go a long way in repairing the heartache we felt on July 11, 2021, when Gareth Southgate’s men failed to win the tournament.

The German squad is full of talent right now (Alexandra Popp and Lena Oberdorf were two of the tournament’s best players) and a victory for them would have been deserved, too, however this time it was the Lionesses who came out on top. 

Euro 2022, though, was a victory for all of women’s football as the tournament attracted record viewing figures and attendances as well as showcasing some brilliant football by a plethora of talented continental players. Anticipations are already high for next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup -  a competition where England will be facing some outstanding competition including the outstanding United States team.

Positive Impact On Women In Society

I was extremely pleased to read about the 87,192 fans who flocked to Wembley to see the game and the reaction on social media was a pleasure to witness. Maybe this is the start of England’s footballing golden age and the catalyst for their competitive redemption. 

Head coach Sarina Weigman said: ‘’I think this tournament has done so much for the game but also for society and women in society in England but I also think in Europe and across the world and I hope that will make a [bigger] change too."

The notion that Euro 2022 will lead to societal change was echoed by captain Leah Williamson, who added: ‘’the legacy of this tournament is the change in society."

Less than 24 hours after their victory, the Lionesses embarked on a title parade in London’s Trafalgar Square. Thousands of fans witnessed what has been a rare sight in England - an international trophy - and rightfully applauded the Women’s team for their efforts. 

The Men’s team have a tough act to follow this winter, but I hope that the scenes at Wembley on July 31 inspired them to do all they can to reach the World Cup final in Qatar.
