She was appearing as a guest on the BBC's coverage of the Euro 2022 final and previewed with the match with pundits Gabby Logan, Ian Wright, Alex Scott and Jonas Eidevall.

Tess received a personal message from Russo, thanking her for her support all summer. The Manchester United star then revealed that she was giving her a match worn shirt from the Sweden win - the one she wore while scoring *that* incredible back-heel goal.

Her reaction was incredibly wholesome, and the joy on her face was truly special.

She was later offered tickets to the final of Euro 2022, with BBC presenter Logan speaking to Tess about her video and the upcoming final, before surprising her with a moment she will never forget.

Sarina Wiegman's side have a chance to win their first major tournament at Wembley Stadium when they face off against Germany tonight, with kick off at 5pm.

As many expected, the England boss named an unchanged side for the final. No team has never named the same XI in six Euro matches.
