‘It is time to party!’ – England players gatecrash Sarina Wiegman’s press conference after Euro 2022 triumph
England manager Sarina Wiegman had her post-Euro 2022 Final press conference abruptly interrupted after the entire Lionesses squad stormed the media room.
Wiegman was speaking to journalists after inspiring England to their first ever major silverware, courtesy of a 2-1 win in extra-time against Germany at Wembley.
The Dutch coach has now won back-to-back European Championships, having guided the Netherlands to victory back in 2017.
On that occasion, the Netherlands were also the tournament hosts, but this win will feel all the more sweet, especially in front of a record Euros attendance of more than 87,000.
As Wiegman attempted to dissect the win to press, she was suddenly ambushed by the England side, who proceeded to launch into a rendition of “It’s coming home.”
It was absolute mayhem, with Lucy Bronze and Mary Earps proceeding to dance on the table as the rest of the Lionesses paraded around the room.
Check out the hilarious video for yourselves here.

Fans react to hilarious gatecrash
Understandably, fans were quick to react to the hilarious incident.
“I love this so much,” said one fan.
Many others echoed this sentiment. “Absolute gold, pure joy to watch them celebrate,” stated one.
“I absolutely adore the character of this team,” stressed another.
Meanwhile, there were some that were quick to point out that the song itself now needs changing. “It’s not coming home, IT IS home,” someone emphasised.
“Should be the new UK national anthem,” one fan suggested.
“Hook it to my veins,” added another.
Incredible scenes at full-time
While the scenes in Wiegman’s press conference were joyous to see, the immediate aftermath of the match was a sight to behold.
Virtually the entire crowd stayed to watch Leah Williamson lift the trophy and thousands sang along as the team launched into renditions of some familiar tunes.
England’s hero, Kelly, even decided to join in by singing “Sweet Caroline” during her post-match interview.
The best day in England’s history
While England’s men famously won the World Cup in 1966, England’s women had never won a major tournament until now.
In 2009, the team reached the Euros final but lost 6-2 to Germany –– making this win even better.
England’s celebrations will no doubt go on long into the night and rightly so. Every single member of Wiegman’s squad are legends in their own right and they will most certainly receive a heroes reception over the next few days.
