In Celebration Of Her Goal, Chloe Kelly Takes Off Her Top – But Fears It Will Be Ruled Illegal
After a dramatic match between England and Germany in the Euro 2022 final, England emerged victorious following Chloe Kelly’s extra-time winner in which she had to remove her top to win the match.
In celebration of her winner against Germany, Chloe Kelly took off her top – yet it took her what seemed like an eternity to remove her top because she feared the goal would have been ruled out.
Following a 2-1 win over the Germans after extra-time in a nail-biting finale that had almost everything going in it, England has brought it all home after winning Euro 2022.
In terms of coaching, Sarina Wiegman has led the Lionesses to their first tournament victory with an impeccable display, winning every match she has coached.
However, the headlines will be dominated by Manchester City star Kelly, who got her first international goal during the course of the match when she scored against Germany in extra time to win the match.
It was by no means a beautiful goal, scraping the ball over the line from a corner was by no means an impressive accomplishment.
There was no doubt the celebration was something to behold, as the 24-year-old whirled around the pitch at Wembley waving her shirt in the air after tearing it off in jubilation after ripping it off.
However, the forward had to wait for the lineswoman to give her the green light as she nervously checked over her shoulder at the lineswoman.
As it transpired that there was nothing wrong with the goal, there was a frenzy in the standings as nearly 90,000 people were sent into a frenzy when it was discovered that there was nothing wrong with the goal.
The iconic celebration of Kelly is likely to leave a mark on many of them, as it was the first of its kind.
Even if she had been booked in the process, it is highly unlikely that she could care less as it led to the Lionesses achieving their first victory in the Euros after the game.
In other words, the women have gone one better than the men last year, who failed at this stage when they lost on penalties to Italy in the quarterfinals.
For the first time in England’s history, as “Three Lions” resounded around the Wembley stadium in front of a record attendance crowd, England’s name was being engraved onto the trophy for the first time in history.
It has been an incredible journey for Kelly, who scored the winning goal and will remain a legend for the rest of his life.
In the spring of this year, she had just returned from an ACL injury that had threatened to end her career, while she was a longshot to make the squad this summer since she had just returned from the injury in the spring.
In the BBC Sport studio, Alex Scott held back tears and described the win as a “dream” while Ian Wright said he was still in shock about what had happened.
The Lionesses win the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 with a historic win thanks to Chloe Kelly’s heroics
As a result of her goal, and the fact that England beat Germany 2-1 at Wembley, Chloe Kelly wrote her name in the history books of women’s football.
After a slide-rule pass from Keira Walsh, England substitute Ella Toone was able to put the team in front against the eight-time European champions with a beautiful lob.
It was then Lina Maghull who equalized with another fantastic strike – her third of the tournament – to force the game to be extended by half an hour.
As a result of Kelly bundling the ball over the line, another sub made herself a legend by stripping off her shirt in celebration, emulating Brandi Chastain back in 1999 when she bundled the ball over the line for the USA.
England’s USA moment
It ended with a delirious Chloe Kelly ripping off her shirt and whirling it around her head – just as Brandi Chastain of the USA did as she scored the winning penalty in the final of the 1999 Women’s World Cup when she tore off her shirt.
As with the previous edition, that too was the most successful edition of the tournament up to that point.
However, England’s matchup with Germany was a game that did not quite go according to plan as they were expecting.
In the final, England had been expected to set up to deal with Alexandra Popp, the German striker who had scored in every single game of the campaign up to that point, and Beth Mead’s closest competition for the Golden Boot.
In order to do that, Popp would have had to have possessed a strong aerial threat, as four of Popp’s six goals in the tournament came from her head.
As the teams took to the pitch, news filtered through that Popp would not be able to start due to an injury he sustained during the warm-ups a few seconds before kickoff.
Lea Schuller was replaced by her former teammate, and she was a very different type of threat, offering additional speed and tricky footwork.
Regardless of how the match ended up, it was always going to be full of determination along with the additional needle of the great rivalry between these two teams in terms of football.
All four meetings between Germany and England at the Women’s Euros previously had been won by a combined scoreline of 15-4, with a 6-2 victory in the 2009 final.
Wily Wiegman wins it with subs
The Netherlands’ Sarina Wiegman, who won the tournament last time round, used her substitutions perfectly, and two replacements made all the difference.
After Maghull’s late equalizer, Toone broke the deadlock, and Kelly nudged the ball over the line with a few minutes left in extra time.
