German newspapers was less than graceful in defeat after the Lionesses stormed to victory in yesterday's euphoric Euros final at Wembley.

Tabloid Bild said England's heroic win 'has a nasty, rotten smell' after the Ukrainian match officials waved away desperate appeals for a handball in the England box.

The newspaper splashed: 'New Wembley Fraud', referencing Geoff Hurst's infamous extra-time goal in the 1966 men's World Cup Final against Beckenbauer's Germany.

Its lead article read: 'This mustn't be true. This simply cannot be true!

Bild added bitterly: 'Those who lose through fraud are in fact winners.' 

Meanwhile defender Sara Doorsoun commented after the game: 'We have [to have] the discussion again about what VAR is for.'

Yet Bild was quick to pour cold water on any English joy, mocking the Lionesses' 'Naked English madness!' as Kelly tore off her shirt and waved it around her head.
