England captain Leah Williamson: Euro 2022 win will bring change in society

England captain Leah Williamson believes her side’s Euro 2022 victory will bring about “a change in society” after the Lionesses beat Germany 2-1 at Wembley Stadium.

Goals from Manchester United’s Ella Toone and Manchester City’s Chloe Kelly secured Sarina Wiegman’s side a deserved victory against eight-time European champions Germany.

And the 2-1 victory was played out in front of a record crowd of 87,192 at Wembley Stadium, beating the highest total recorded in either the men’s or women’s editions of the tournament.

Williamson is already sure it will have a huge impact on society at large going forward. She said: “The legacy of this tournament is a change in society. We’ve brought people together and got people to this game.

“The legacy of this team is winning and this is the start of the journey.”

The Arsenal added: “I just can’t stop crying. We talked and we talked and we’ve finally done it.

“It’s the proudest moment of my life until the day I have kids I suppose. I’m going to lap it up. I want to relive it over and over and I’ll be reliving it for a long time.”
