The Three Lions’ Football’s Coming Home anthem – often abbreviated to ‘It’s Coming Home’ – was first performed by David Baddiel and Frank Skinner in 1996 when England hosted the European Championships men’s tournament.
It was aimed at inspiring the return of a major trophy to England where the game of football began.
But the England women’s team’s victory was the first time a football trophy had ‘come home’ since England won the men’s World Cup at Wembley in 1966.
It was England’s first women’s Euros title but Wiegman’s second after coaching her native Netherlands to glory in 2017.
