She told us that her mother jumped onto the sofa in joy as they watched England's match against Italy at home in London.
England fans leapt in the air, believing the 19 year old's goal shot in the first 2 minutes had hit the back of the net. The BBC coverage flashed up 'GOAL', only to discover seconds later that the ball had only found the side-netting.
