Fans have roared with the Lionesses as they stepped into the lead against Germany after super sub Ella Toone scored the match’s first goal.

Supporters could be seen screaming with joy and leaping into the air as Toone scored, as spectators in Wembley went wild. 

Supporters wearing England flags and face paint in London’s Trafalgar Square were ecstatic as the point came in.

The Lionesses had been held by half time at the women’s Euros final, despite dominating the opening 45 minutes – but surviving a major Germany goal scare.

But the introduction of Toone had a near-instant impact as she broke to fizz a shot past helpless German keeper Merle Frohms.

It was almost the perfect start for the team as Fran Kirby found Ellen White but she headed it straight to the keeper.

Later England put Germany under extreme pressure in the 18th minute after a series of corners threatened on goal, with Lucy Bronze’s shot nearly squeezing past Frohms.

The Lionesses had peppered her goal with chances throughout the first half and fans may have been forgiven for wondering how they were not at least 2-0 up.

But Germany were not without their own threat, with one effort prompting a desperate goalmouth scramble to deny them a goal.

England’s high-energy performance gave supporters plenty to hope for ahead of the final 45 minutes to come, with the match finely poised.
