This Young Girl's Euros Celebration After England Win Has People In Tears

A sporting win is a reason to celebrate, but one little girl's Euros celebration after England's win was so amazing that it left people in tears.

On the off chance that you missed it, last night, England's women's team reached the Euro 2022 final after defeating Sweden 4-0. Watch this little girl's amazing reaction below:

This was a landmark victory for the team who have not reached the final of a major tournament since 2009.

It was also a victory made all the sweeter by the fact that Sweden are the highest-ranked team in Europe.

But while people up and down the country were celebrating the victory, one little girl's reaction caught the eye of Her Game Too - a campaign run by female football fans to encourage gender quality.

They shared the incredible footage of her jumping up and down to celebrate England's win and captioned it: "This. This is what it’s all about #HerGameToo."

The tweet didn't go unnoticed on the social media website, and at the time of writing, it has been liked over 36K times and received hundreds of comments.

One Twitter user wrote: "This is what it is all about. Brought a tear to my eye. Having taught PE for 39 years at last I feel that Women's Sport is being recognised and being treated seriously. GB Women's hockey winning gold was the start but this is extra special and we can kick on [sic].

"The sheer joy shown by this smasher is fantastic!" wrote a second. "How many of us wouldn’t want to dance like that everyday?!"

"What a fabulous example of how football supporters should act!" added a third. "Bless her she's so enjoying the game [sic]."

"Football is for everyone, regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation," wrote a fourth viewer. "Great to see the Women's Game finding its audience."

"This is fantastic!" remarked a fifth before sharing: "When I was at school (80s) we had separate playgrounds, 1 for boys to play footy & 1 for the girls to play hopscotch & that weird elastic rounds the legs thing [sic].

"So, so happy to see this change in my lifetime. Thank you."

The little girl was later identified as Tess from Wakefield, as reported by The Metro.

She went on to appear on BBC Breakfast this morning, explaining that she now wants to be a footballer when she grows up.

"I was looking at how they were celebrating and thinking of how I was going to celebrate," she explained.
