England’s women were awesome!

Here’s why:

1 THEY SCORED GREAT GOALS!

Pick of the bunch had to be Lucy Bronze’s quarter-final screamer from the edge of the box which sent England into the semi-finals – not bad for a defender!

2 THEY’RE INSPIRATIONAL!

The passion, pride and skill they showed in Canada will inspire millions of young players to one day play for England!

3 FRIENDS OF MOTD!

We met the whole squad before they jetted off to the World Cup and they were really friendly! They even kept in touch with us during the tournament – read their interviews HERE!

4 THEY BOSSED THE WORLD CHAMPIONS!

In the semi-final England totally dominated reigning World champs Japan! Only a freak last minute goal separated us from the best team in the tournament!

5 HOPE!

This squad made the entire nation believe we could be World Champions again for the first time since 1966!

6 TALENT ALL OVER THE PITCH!

We can’t pick a standout player – they were all amazing! EVERY player in the squad made an appearance except third-choice keeper Carly Telford. That’s what you call a team effort!

7 HISTORY MAKERS!

Is this the best women’s team in the history of English football? England had never ever won a knock-out game before – in Canada they won two!

8 NO PENALTY SHOOTOUTS!

At least they didn’t make us suffer the pain of another penalty shootout defeat! They exited the competition playing positively, trying everything to win their semi-final in normal time!

DE BRUYNE! His form is frightening, laying on goals like they're going out of fashion!

ZAHA! Inspired Palace to their first win of the – and against Champions Chelsea!
