The England star was initially scouted by Queen’s Park Rangers at a schools tournament before going on to play for Arsenal.
The footballer appeared to be returning to her roots after scoring in extra time against Germany at Wembley to take the historic win – earning England its first football silverware since 1966.
Kelly arrived at Loftus Road to watch QPR play host to Middlesbrough and to present the match ball just before kick-off.

Fans were eager to pose with the match winner who is a lifelong supporter of the football team
Kelly’s iconic celebration after her extra-time goal in the European Championship final was inspired by QPR legend Bobby Zamora who celebrated by taking his shirt off in 2014 after his Derby win
Queens Park Rangers said: ‘England’s Euro 2022 match winner is a lifelong fan of R’s and will be the club’s special guest as we celebrate her incredible achievement with the Lionesses.
“While conducting her post-match interview in front of the millions watching, Kelly made sure she had her QPR flag with her.
“Football came home after 56 years of hurt – and now we can’t wait to bring Kelly home!”
You can see the football player arrive at the match and pose with fans before the match.
She also received a Euro 22 Champions shirt signed by the Queens Park Rangers team.
The Manchester City star made history when she took off her shirt and ran across the pitch in honor of her European Championship goal, which ended Germany’s eight win streak.

A lifelong fan of Queens Park Rangers, she said her celebration was inspired by Bobby Zamora, a former player of the club, who scored the last minute winner against Derby in 2014, promoting QPR to the Premier League.
QPR legend Zamora congratulated the lioness calling her a “national hero” and said he was “moved” that she pronounced his name at “such an amazing moment.”
Kelly replied, “As a QPR fan, you dream of moments like this.
“Being at Wembley that day was special and now experiencing it for yourself was great.”
Kelly also thanked her older brothers for letting her play football in the cages with them from the age of seven.

Kelly wasn’t the only Lioness to return to her roots this week after the historic win in England.
Jill Scott, one of England’s most capable players, went back to her day job at the coffee shop she owns in Manchester.
Scott was also in the picture posing with fans and even letting people take pictures with her European Championship victory medal.
