And the supersub forward came off the bench in the final and was part of the wild celebrations following Chloe Kelly's dramatic Wembley winner which secured a first-ever major trophy for the Lionesses.

After grabbing a goal in the 8-0 mauling of Norway then two as England saw off Northern Ireland 5-0, Russo's moment of magic came in the semi-final.

Her iconic backheel through the legs of Sweden goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl was dubbed one of the greatest England goals of all time.

It has now earned the Queen of Europe royal status - at the tower built for the England monarchs nearly 1,000 years ago and home to the Crown Jewels.

That is because the boots she was wearing for the tournament are a national treasure, put on display at the historical landmark this week.

Russo handed her personalised adidas X SPEEDPORTAL over to AJ Clark - just the second-ever female Yeoman Warder - and will be housed in a case in the Martin Tower explaining the journey and history of woman 'Beefeaters'.

Manchester United's Russo said: “Scoring that goal is something I will never forget.

"So to have this memory preserved in time amongst other national treasures feels so surreal.

"This is an extraordinary time for sporting history, so a huge thank you to adidas for celebrating this moment in such a special way.”

The adidas X SPEEDPORTAL boots are designed for the fastest players in football.

But it was Russo's quick thinking that lit up the Euros semi-final with that sensational finish that will be etched into football folklore forever.

She added on Instagram: "Placing these gems in the Tower of London.

"The boots that helped win Euro 2022 will now sit amongst our national Crown Jewels."
