England's Millie Bright, Ellen White and Rachel Daly celebrate victory over Germany in the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 final at Wembley Stadium, London.

It’s a song that has become synonymous with the England football teams, reverberating around Wembley and Trafalgar Square as the Lionesses marked their historic win at the Euros on Sunday.

Sweet Caroline solidified its place as England’s football anthem during last summer’s Euros, with manager Gareth Southgate declaring: “You can’t beat a bit of Neil Diamond to celebrate a win.”
