The Finalissima at Wembley – 4 April 2023
After booking tickets for the Women’s ‘Finalissima’ between England and Brazil at Wembley back in October, the day for the match finally arrived and we caught the train up to London from Beaconsfield.
We arrived in good time before our allotted entry slot and enjoyed milling with the crowds on Wembley way and visiting some of the local shops close to Wembley.
We made our way eventually into the stadium, having successfully managed to avoid most of the rain showers during the day and settled into our seats in the fourth row back from the pitch.
Following an equaliser from Brazil in the 93rd minute, the match ended up being decided on penalties, which England then won 4 goals to 2.
We eventually made our way out of the stadium at around 10:15pm and joined a well organised queue for the return train to Beaconsfield.
After an hour’s queuing, we found ourselves on the platform at Wembley Stadium station and shoehorned ourselves onto a train for the return to Beaconsfield.
It had been a long and memorable day and we arrived home just after 12.30am
