JUBILANT England fans have packed out pubs and flocked to Wembley to cheer on the heroic Lionesses during tonight's showpiece Euro's final.

The women's team are taking on Germany in a historic clash at Wembley.

Supporters started flocking to boozers early this afternoon to cheer on the team, who are on the brink of making women's football history.

Box Park in Wembley is packed out with excited drinkers cheering the team on.

Wembley Way erupted in a sea of red and white earlier tonight as fans in face paint and flags made their way up to the stadium.

The Lionesses heartbreakingly lost out to Germany in the final of Euro 2009 with a crushing 6-2 defeat.

But a stunning tournament has seen the England team soar through to the final and catapulted women's football to new heights.

Under Wembley's famous arch, they will be hoping to bring football home with a first major trophy for the women's team.

The victory would also be the first football honors for the nation since the men's 1966 World Cup win.

The nail-biting match will kick off at Wembley at 5pm - with around 90,000 fans expected to pile in to watch the action.

It's predicted Brits will spend £46.1million in boozers today with 8.7million pints downed.

Around 7,000 people heading to London’s Trafalgar Square to watch the action at the designated fan park.

An all-women RAF crew performed a fly-past above Wembley at 4.57pm, immediately after the national anthems were played.

The final is expected to be the most-watched telly event of the year with a record-breaking 19.5 million viewers.

The heroic Lionesses have inspired a generation of girls with their incredible campaign to the Euro 2022 final.

Back-heeling heroine Alessia Russo and teammates, Leah Williamson, Beth Mead and Millie Bright have become household names thanks to their stunning campaign.

The FA now expects 120,000 more girls to be playing the sport by 2024 due to England’s success.

Princess Charlotte led support for the team today in a heartwarming message with dad Prince William.

She said: "Good luck, I hope you win. Bye"
