Did you know that Britain beat Germany 4-0 in an international soccer match in Berlin on Sunday? And not only that - they won the European Championship? There's a catch, of course, for this was a team of British WOMEN.
Women's soccer is not everyone's cup of tea, but the British girls certainly showed some classy footwork - maybe they should have turned out against Ireland at Wembley three days later.
Star of the match seems to have been the tricky, dark-haired outside-right who scored a couple of great goals. Hate off, too, to the British goal-keeper who stopped a penalty shot.
The German forward followed up and rammed the ball into the net, but the 'goal' was disallowed and a free-kick awarded to England for 'dangerous kicking'.
The English girls reaches the final by beating Holland 2-1 in an earlier match.
