Because even if the wide score (4-0) suggests it, nothing was easy for the troop of Sarina Wiegman, who suffered for a long time against the silver medalists of the Tokyo Games. Stina Blackstenius and her partners came into their own from the opening seconds of the game, forcing Mary Earps to launch a festival of parries that would leave them fanny: “I think they (the players) have already shown several times that they are very resilient. We managed to fight our way through. The players on the pitch found a way out of the pressure. I am so proud of them”confided, after the meeting to the BBC, the coach who is only one match away from a second consecutive Euro title.

A conquered supporter: “I put a note on France against Germany”

With forceps, thanks to the essential Beth Mead, to a brilliant gesture from Alessia Russo, or to the mischief of the stainless Fran Kirby, his training still ended up crushing an opponent who had nevertheless long tried to crack the lock once again unbreakable local, who have conceded only one goal in 5 matches in this Euro.

English international but BBC consultant for this competition where she is not part of the “Lionesses” group, Izzy Christansen did not hesitate to exclaim: “What a night! It’s so special what they’re doing,” couldn’t believe the middle, who would have “rated all players (English) a 7 or 8/10” for their successful performance once again, as she explained.

It’s phenomenal, it’s not just women and young girls. There are also plenty of men and young boys celebrating in the crowd. That’s how we build women’s football.”

Millie Bright’s teammates can be reassured: they can count on Sunday in London, for the final, on a wind of enthusiasm, already seen last year during the men’s Euro. Their objective is immense, since they can win the first title of the English selection since the 1966 World Cup. And thus put stars elsewhere than in the eyes of their compatriots.
