England women's coach Sarina Wiegman has been tipped to manage in the Premier League after guiding the Lionesses to a stunning Euro 2022 win.

On home soil, England went all the way in the tournament and beat Germany 2-1 in extra time in the final at Wembley Stadium.

87,000 were in attendance - a record for a Euros fixture - while a staggering 17.4 million tuned in around the country to watch substitute Chloe Kelly score the goal that brought football home.

It was a first major trophy for England since the 1966 World Cup win, ending 56 years of hurt.

And Wiegman's managerial abilities throughout the triumph have not gone unnoticed. The 52-year-old previously guided her native Netherlands to the same trophy five years ago and replicated the achievement just ten months into her tenure with England.

She has helped create an incredible team spirit and work ethic, as well as proving tactically astute and implementing an attractive style of play.

Wiegman proved particularly shrewd with her substitutions and did everything with a calmness.

Former England striker Darren Bent is a huge fan and believes she has what it takes to manage at the top level in the men's game - also touting Chelsea women's boss Emma Hayes for a historic job.

"One hundred per cent," Bent replied to a caller on talkSPORT when asked if Weigman was capable of managing in the Championship or Premier League.

"In some capacity at some stage, she will do. And not just her. People have spoke about Emma Hayes. If we keep seeing the emergence of the women's game going the way it is - and obviously we've just seen England win the Euros, she's going to get an opportunity at some stage."

Wiegmann made such an impression that many fans have called for her to replace Gareth Southgate, who led England to the Euro 2020 final but lost on penalties to Italy.

Highly-rated Hayes, who has won five WSL titles with Chelsea, was linked with AFC Wimbledon in February 2021 but emphatically dismissed the speculation.
