Arsenal Women’s Center Helps England Win Euro 2022

After a grueling 120-minute battle against a Germany team that was widely regarded as the pre-match favorite, England emerged 2-1 winners, thanks to Kelly’s 110th-minute winner.

Two Arsenal players were at the vanguard of a seismic event that was destined to be a catalyst in the growth of women’s football in the country.

Beth Mead’s outstanding performance not just in the final, but throughout the tournament, earned her the titles of player of the tournament and golden boot winner.

With six goals and a competition-high five assists, the Gunners no.9 was head and shoulders above any opposition defense that came up against her.

Mead, 27, has captured the hearts of a nation, and just as youngster’s looked to Bukayo Saka’s heartbreak as inspiration last summer, Mead will play a similar role in galvanizing women’s football in the country.

Leah Williamson, Ms Arsenal herself, has cemented her place in English sporting history by claiming the European Championship as captain.

Her tournament, like Mead’s, was nothing short of amazing, both in and out of possession.

The ball-playing defender completed a tournament-high 472 passes while also leading the ball recovery numbers with a whopping 56 recoveries.
The England captain described the moment as “the proudest moment of my life” after the game.

Williamson went on to encourage fans to watch the Women’s game the following season:

“We want them to attend WSL games.”

To finish off a fantastic day, the skipper lifted the trophy.

While the two other Gunners contingent members, Nikita Parris and Lotte Wubben-Moy, did not have the minutes of their Arsenal counterparts, they contributed to the ethos established by Sarina Wiegman.

Despite their summer efforts, the Arsenal squad will have little time to relax, with the season opener against Manchester in the WSL just over a month away.

The game will be broadcast live on SkySports at 7 p.m. on Sunday, September 11th, as the WSL looks to capitalize on the momentum generated by the Euros.
