It was not just in Worcester where crowds enjoyed watching Sarina Wiegman’s side bring football home.

Staff at the Valkyrie, in Evesham, said: “We didn't get a big turnout but those that did attend very much made up for it.

“The uproar when the final whistle blew and the Lionesses had won was phenomenal!”

The game broke attendance records, with the 87,192 at Wembley Stadium making it the biggest crowd of any men’s or women’s UEFA European Championship match.

Records were also shattered on the box, with the final attracting a peak TV audience of 17.4 million, the most for a women’s football match in the UK, according to overnight ratings released by the BBC.

The previous record was set during England’s 2019 World Cup semi-final defeat by the United States, which enjoyed a peak audience of 11.7 million.

County MP Nigel Huddleston was among the many to heap praises on the Lionesses.
