Fans around the country are calling for an extra bank holiday after England finally brought it home with an incredible 2-1 win over Germany in extra time.

It's certainly the least the Lionesses deserve and would allow the country to celebrate the win just how it should, with a good and proper sesh.

Labour leader Keir Starmer was well up for the idea ahead of final. Speaking to the Daily Mirror, he said: “The whole country will be roaring on the Lionesses in the final on Sunday.

"They have already done us proud, but if they win it will be a truly historic achievement - one that should be marked with a proper day of celebration, where clubs can open and promote access for women and girls.”

And of course you remember the men's final last year when Boris Johnson didn't exactly rule the idea out, responding to a petition he said: "I think that would be tempting fate; let's see what happens."

The men couldn't quite do it on that occasion, but now the Lionesses have done it the people have made it known that we deserve a day off to bask in their glory.

The message is loud and clear, some people even want it to come as soon as tomorrow. Probably because they'll be nursing a sore head from the absolute scenes witnessed around the country tonight.

The Queen is certainly embracing the win, this is what she had to say to our heroes: "My warmest congratulations, and those of my family, go to you all on winning the European Women's Football Championships. It is a significant achievement for the entire team, including your support staff. 

"The Championships and your performance in them have rightly won praise. However, your success goes far beyond the trophy you have so deservedly earned."

So what do you say Mr Johnson? The country demands a bank holiday after the Lionesses finally brought it home.
