England Players Storm Post-Euro 2022 Press Conference Yelling 'It's Coming Home'
| Last updated
The overjoyed England squad has stormed their manager's post-match press conference after beating Germany in the Euro 2022 Championship final at Wembley.
The women burst into the room while Sarina Wiegman was talking about the big win and sang 'It's Coming Home' in front of the waiting media.
A seemingly stunned Wiegman was initially speechless before bursting into laughter.
She even helped goalkeeper Mary Earps climb onto the table to bust a move or two.
The England squad won their nerve-wracking final with goals from Ella Toone and Chloe Kelly.
The Manchester City star scored in the 111th minute to give winning England their first major title.
Kelly, who almost didn’t play in the women’s Euro 2022 final after battling a severe anterior cruciate ligament injury, was extremely emotional post-match, as per The Guardian.

“As a young girl watching women’s football and now this, wow, it’s unbelievable,” the winger said.
She continued: “Thank you to everyone who played part in my rehab, because I always believed I could be here, but to score the winner … wow.
“These girls are special, the manager is special and what a special group of staff. This is amazing. All my family are in the crowd. My mum, all my brothers, my sister, all my nephews, everyone. I just want to celebrate.”
Wiegman also spoke to BBC Sport post-match, revealing how delighted she was while reminiscing about winning the trophy with Holland five years ago.
She said: "We won the cup. It is unbelievable. It is incredible.”
Wiegman, who was only appointed England manager less than 12 months ago, also called the win a ‘historic moment’ for the team, after achieving their 18th victory of the 20 games, according to The Guardian.
“It was so tight but who cares,” Wiegman said.
“We won 2-1 and we are European champions. If you really want to win and become better every single day, that’s what I have noticed the whole year. It’s been incredible.
"We agreed a couple of things on behaviours, they weren’t just words, we lived it. And this is the result.”
Queen Elizabeth II sent a message to the legends and said the win will act as an inspiration for years.
"My warmest congratulations, and those of my family, go to you all on winning the European Women's Football Championships," Her Majesty wrote.
"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.
"You have all set an example that will be an inspiration for girls and women today, and for future generations.
"It is my hope that you will be as proud of the impact you have had on your sport as you are of the result today."
