I had planned to go to the England-Sweden semi-final the other night, but between my friend’s broken phone and lost tickets I wasn’t able to go along, so I had to make do with watching it in the pub in Birmingham.

Living in England now you are just surrounded by the women’s Euros, and it was amazing to sit there in a pub and see so many people interested in the game, talking about the match. The next day I was just having a coffee and the two women beside me were talking football, women’s football, debating the team England would pick and the tactics for the final. I heard a few lads at the next table debating how good Beth Mead was and if we’ve yet to see her at her best in the Euros.
