Coach Wiegmann commemorates sister: Celebrating English women storm press event

After their brilliant success at the European Championships, the English team turned the subsequent press conference into a party - including dancing on the table. When trainer Wiegmann explains to the journalists present what her bracelet is all about, things get emotional.

England coach Sarina Wiegmann had only spoken a few sentences when she was amusingly interrupted. After winning the European Football Championship, the English players stormed their coach's press conference in the catacombs of London's Wembley Stadium, singing and dancing. Goalie Mary Earps and defender Lucy Bronze even jumped on the table while singing "Football's Coming Home."

"I think we won the cup," joked Wiegmann, who followed the action with amusement. "We won it and we're really happy." The Dutchwoman had already won the EM in 2017 with her home country. For England, on the other hand, the 2-1 win after extra time in the final against Germany marked their first success at a major international tournament.

"Now is the time to celebrate," said Wiegmann. Shortly after, the coach got emotional and explained why she kissed her bracelet during the game. "It belonged to my sister who died earlier this year. I missed her today but I think she was in the crossbar," said the 52-year-old, referring to Germany's Lina Magull hitting the post when the score was 1-1 . "She would have been here. She was at every game. She would have been very, very proud too."
