Lionesses admit to ‘sore heads’ as Euros celebrations continue

The whole country united in excited support when the England women's football team brought home the Euro 2022 trophy. The team members themselves were seen celebrating on the pitch at the end of the nail biting match and even storming their manager's press conference to happily sing verses of "It's Coming Home".

So we're not surprised that some members of the winning squad exclusively admit to OK! that their celebrations extended well into the next day and that they were all suffering from "sore heads' are partying perhaps a little too hard!

Keira Walsh, 25, who plays for Manchester City, tells us: "The celebrations carried on until the early hours of the morning. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity so you’ve got to take advantage of it. It was a really special night with our families and the staff."

Lucy Bronze, 30, who also plays for Manchester City says: "There were a lot of sore heads, tired eyes and sunglasses on the Monday morning!"

But the trio, including Ellen White, 33, says that the hangovers were worth it!

She says: "Seeing everyone in Trafalgar Square was incredible. We didn’t know what was happening so for us to get off the coach and just see all those thousands of people was unbelievable. It was a lovely way to thank the fans."

The trio also tell us that the reception they're receiving when they're out and about has changed and now they're recognised all over the place!

Keira says: "I went to Tesco yesterday to get something for dinner and everyone was asking for a selfie. Normally I can go in there without getting noticed! It’s definitely changed everything."

But far from complaining about being recognised, Keira says this is exactly what she and the rest of the team wanted. "For us it’s an opportunity to push women’s football forward," she says.

Lucy also tells us that the team are determined to build upon the strides they have made to ensure all young girls are given the opportunity to play football. They wrote an open letter to Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss – one of whom will be the next Conservative Prime Minister – urging them to give girls access to the game. She explains: "It’s something we feel really strongly about, as it’s something we’ve all had to overcome as young girls. We already feel like we’re on the right path to changing a lot of things for the better for girls, and boys too."
