Sarina Wiegman praised her England players for “making a difference” this summer but insisted, “we want more”. Only by beating Germany at Wembley on Sunday night can the Lionesses leave a legacy to last “the next 15 years”.

The 53-year-old won Euro 2017 with her native Netherlands and has enthralled audiences in the stadiums of England this summer and around the stadiums and watching at home. “Like now, you’ve won the quarter-final and semi-final and already we think we already made a difference,” she said.

“We hear people say we have been an inspiration for the country already. And I’ve heard that. and that’s really nice. But we want more. You know, when you win a major tournament that really makes a difference. That will make me really proud.
