England's women have been preparing for their World Cup semi-final by watching the Paul Gascoigne movie.

The film, released earlier this month, charts the life and career of one of England's most maverick players.

Arguably Gascoigne's most famous moment in an England shirt involved a World Cup semi-final, when he was brought to tears as England went out of Italia 90 at the hands of West Germany.

And Mark Sampson's women have been drawing inspiration from the film, with goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain tweeting on Tuesday morning: "Loved watching Gascoigne with the girls tonight. Such pride & honour to play for @england. How it should be!"

Forty-eight-year-old Gascoigne made 57 appearances for England, scoring 10 goals.
