Today’s Euro 2022 final between England and Germany has set a new attendance record after 87,192 spectators attended Wembley to cheer on the Lionesses.
Sarina Wiegman’s side have gripped the nation with their run to the final and the tournament’s already set a number of records, with overall attendances almost double the previous best.

England took the lead twenty minutes from time when Ella Toone lifted the ball over the onrushing Frohms to send the crowd into raptures.
However, the home side retreated after the opener and allowed Germany back into the final.
The visitors took full advantage when Magull expertly converted a cross at the near post to take the final to extra-time.
