Ealing’s very own Chloe Kelly secured England’s winning goal against Germany in the Women’s Euros at Wembley Stadium in front of a record crowd of 87,192.
The 24-year-old who attended Elthorne Park High School in Hanwell scored the winning goal during extra time which resulted in England winning 2-1 against Germany.
Chloe was a substitute and helped ensure the Lionesses win their first ever major trophy which also is the first major football trophy for England since 1966 men’s World Cup.
Currently, Chloe plays for Manchester City and previously played for QPR.
As a youngster, Chloe said she would travel to Wembley.
She said: “I grew up in Ealing, West London, so I used to get the 92 bus down to Wembley. I would get the bus down there as a kid when it was the FA Cup Final and things like that to buy a programme and then go back home.”
Following the win, Ealing councillor Gregory Stafford said he will be proposing Chloe gets Freedom of Ealing.
He said: “We rightly gave @BukayoSaka87 the Freedom of the Borough in #Ealing earlier this year. I will be proposing @Chloe_Kelly98 for the same honour!”
