After the final whistle, the England players danced and the crowd sang their anthem “Sweet Caroline.” The good-natured atmosphere inside the stadium Sunday drew contrasts with the violent scenes when the England men’s team lost its European Championship final to Italy at the same stadium a year ago.

Kelly took her shirt off to celebrate her goal, earning a yellow card but also a shout-out from Brandi Chastain, who celebrated in similar style when her penalty kick won the World Cup for the U.S. in 1999.

Commenting on the outcome of the final UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 game Chastain wrote via Twitter: “Enjoy the free rounds of pints and dinners for the rest of your life from all of England. Cheers!”
