A number of fans took to social media to lavish praise on Kelly and to celebrate the historic day for English football.

“Chloe Kelly for PM,” one Twitter user declared.

This call was echoed with another tweet reading: “CHLOE Kelly for Prime Minister.”

A third voiced the same opinion: “Congratulations to Chloe Kelly, England’s new Prime Minister.”

The striker started the final against Germany on the bench, coming on shortly after Ella Toone’s opener to try and see England over the line in regulation time.

However, it wasn’t to be as Germany’s Lina Magull smashed a powerful effort in at the near post to take the game to extra-time.

During the second half of extra-time the Germans struggled to deal with a corner and the resulting loose ball enabled Kelly to prod the ball into the net, sending her and the team into wild celebrations.

The 110th minute winner sent supporters up and down the country into jubilant celebrations, as football finally returned home for the first time since 1966.

Her winning goal – also her first goal in an England shirt – earned praise from Her Majesty the Queen, England men’s stars Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling, and Piers Morgan.

Former Lioness Alex Scott also added: “This is a dream.”

Kelly, 24, currently plays for Women’s Super League side Manchester City.

She has contributed 25 goals in 23 league starts for the Cityzens since joining on a free transfer in 2020, but was a doubt for this tournament after suffering an ACL injury in April.
