England’s Euro 2022 hero Chloe Kelly cracked a joke about her shirtless celebration during the Lionesses’ victory parade on Monday. The 24-year-old was the centrepiece of an iconic scene as she wheeled away to cheer what turned out to be England’s winner on the day, sealing a second successive European Championships for boss Sarina Wiegman.
Kelly’s input didn’t come until late in the game, with England and Germany embroiled in a tense contest that went to extra time. Ella Toone sparked a frenzy inside Wembley with her superb chip to open the scoring, but Lina Magull brought the crowd crashing down with a 79th-minute equaliser.

She was swarmed by team-mates while swinging her shirt overhead in celebration, which is sure to go down as an iconic moment in English international football.
