British rock band Coldplay have paid tribute to the England women’s national team after they made history at the European Championship last month.
The world-famous band are currently hosting the UK leg of their ‘Music of the Spheres’ world tour, which includes five dates at Wembley Stadium.
The 90,000 capacity arena was where the Lionesses beat Germany in the Euro 2022 final to claim their first ever major tournament title.
Coldplay drummer Will Champion posted a photo on the band’s official Twitter account featuring an image of his drum skin with a classy touch to honor England’s triumph.
With Wembley’s famous red stands visible in the background, the photo shows the names of Sarina Wiegman’s 23-man European squad written on the drum.
“Honored to play our home shows at the Maison des Lionnes. W,” the caption read.

As the second largest stadium in Europe, Wembley has hosted many huge events over the years, but finding something to top England’s electric performance in the Euro 2022 final won’t be a task. easy.
The Lionesses wrote the perfect fairy tale during the tournament – ending the country’s 56-year wait for a major trophy to come home, and on English soil no less.
Wiegman’s side topped their group stage draw with maximum points, having scored 14 goals in three matches and conceded none.
After a hard-fought victory over Spain in the quarter-finals, England swept Sweden in the semi-finals to set up a final clash against eight-time champions Germany.
Packed Wembley Stadium had to wait over an hour for the game’s first goal to arrive, but when it did, it came in style.
After a sensational long ball from Keira Walsh, Ella Toone fired her shot over the goalkeeper to put England ahead.
Lina Magull found the equalizer for Germany in the 79th minute to force a nervous extra period. But with just ten minutes remaining in the penalty shootout, substitute Chloe Kelly etched her name in the history books by scoring the winning goal and inscribing England’s name on the trophy.
England set a new tournament record when a huge crowd of 87,192 packed into Wembley for the final. The nearly full-capacity venue is now the busiest Euro match in history, men’s or women’s.
