England have beaten Germany after extra-time at Wembley Stadium in London to take the 2022 Women's European Championship title.

Ella Toone claimed the first goal of the evening for the Lionesses in the 62nd minute, only for Lina Magull to hit back in the 79th.

The game looked set for penalties as extra-time ticked away, however, Manchester City's Chloe Kelly netted for the homeside, giving them back the lead and ultimately the win.

The title is the first time an English national side has won a major tournament since the men's squad claimed the 1966 World Cup.

Earlier, Laois survived a late fightback from Wexford to take the Intermediate decider by 1-13 to 1-11 and Antrim and Fermanagh played out a 1-13 draw in the Junior final to head for a replay on August 13th.
