The English team received a special greeting from Queen Elizabeth on Sunday in honour of their triumph against Germany in the Euro Women’s Football Championship.
You all have my family’s and my sincere congratulations on winning the European Women’s Football Championships.
It is a noteworthy accomplishment for the whole team, including your support crew.
The Championships and your performance therein have earned plaudits, and rightfully so.
Your accomplishments, however, go well beyond the trophy you so richly deserve.
For girls and women today and in the future, you have all set an example that will serve as motivation.
I want you to feel just as proud of the influence you have made on your sport as you do of the outcome right now.
