"I was ready to take off the jersey and go crazy"

England's European champion Chloe Kelly has revealed she planned her goal celebration ahead of time after beating Germany 2-1 in the final. "I was ready to take the jersey off and go crazy," Kelly told itv on TV's Good Morning Britain. "In men's football they would do exactly the same thing, why shouldn't I be able to do that as a woman? I think every England player and England fan felt the same at that moment."

Her celebration in a sports bra was one of the scenes from the English perspective of the final at Wembley Stadium and subsequently featured on the front pages of many British newspapers. However, the 24-year-old hesitated briefly before she took off her jersey. "I looked at the referee and thought: What will she decide now, free kick or goal? Because of video evidence and stuff like that, you don't want to cheer too soon, you have to be sure," Kelly said. "I grabbed my shirt and thought: Am I going to take it off or what?"

After a brief consultation with her assistants, referee Kateryna Monzul awarded the goal in the 110th minute – and Kelly let her joy run free. She didn't care that she received a yellow card for her celebration. "It's the best yellow card I've ever received," said the Manchester City striker.

"I think at that moment everything is a haze and you just celebrate the moment, you don't think about taking your shirt off. Because as you know, I took off my jersey and freaked out.”

The German soccer players have missed the European title. At the famous Wembley Stadium in London, the English team won 2-1 after extra time. One of the most important players on the pitch is missing.
