Tottenham Hotspur star Lucas Moura sends message to England team after Women’s Euro win
Lucas Moura sent a congratulatory message after England won the UEFA Women’s Euro on Sunday after an inspired win against Germany in the final.
It was a memorable night for those at the packed Wembley Stadium as they witnessed the Lionesses win their first ever major international trophy. Ella Toone’s immaculate chipped finish in the 62nd minute opened the scoring.
Lina Magull’s awareness inside the box saw her get on the end of a wonderful low-driven cross and equalise the scoreline. But it was England who prevailed after Chloe Kelly bundled home a 110th-minute winner to send the fans into a frenzy.
After the game, Lucas took to his Twitter account to congratulate Sarina Wiegman’s team on their unprecedented achievement. He wrote:
“Congratulations ladies! You’ve put your names in the history of football. As a resident of England I feel very happy for you. Very well done”
The former Paris Saint-Germain has been a resident of England ever since he left Paris for North London in January 2018. As for England, the trophy finally ‘came home’.
Those two words have become more of a sentiment rather than a fact. This was England’s first-ever Euros win period. The men’s team has never won the tournament and lost to Italy in the final last summer.

It was also a mammoth task defeating the infallible Germans in the final, who lost a Euro final for the first time in their history. Their women’s team has won the competition eight times since its inception.
