Gareth Southgate, the head coach of the England men’s football team, has shared a message of encouragement for the Lionesses as they prepare for their World Cup final match against Spain.
In a video posted on the Lionesses Twitter account, Southgate expressed his support, stating that he has no advice to give as the women’s team “have done more than us already.”
He commended their impressive journey and performance throughout the tournament, particularly highlighting their historic place in the final for the first time in history.
The England Women’s side secured their spot in the final with a remarkable 3-1 victory over Australia in the semi-finals.
If they emerge victorious in the final, they would become World Cup champions, mirroring the achievement of the men’s team in 1966.
Southgate’s message of support was one among many, as notable figures including England men’s captain Harry Kane and former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand also sent their well wishes to the team.
Kane, in an Instagram video, praised the Lionesses for their incredible journey and urged them to secure the World Cup win.
Ferdinand expressed his confidence in the team’s ability to make history and encouraged them to seize the moment.
Former England women’s forward Kelly Smith shared her enthusiasm for the team’s success and encouraged them to believe in themselves for one last push to victory.
She assured the Lionesses that they have the support of many proud fans who will be watching the final.
Additionally, various prominent individuals from the music and sports worlds, such as Geri Halliwell, Paloma Faith, Chase & Status, Jess Glynne, Premier League stars James Maddison, Callum Wilson, Kieran Trippier, and Chelsea Women’s boss Emma Hayes, added their words of encouragement and support to the video.
The Lionesses have shown their resilience and determination throughout the tournament, overcoming challenges and obstacles to reach this historic moment.
As they face Spain in the final, they carry with them the backing and well wishes of a nation, eager to witness their potential triumph on the world stage.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
