Mary Earps firmly states that England has “many more levels” to achieve before their Saturday quarter-final encounter with Colombia.
Following a goalless normal time, the Lionesses advanced to the final eight by winning a penalty shoot-out against Nigeria, with Chloe Kelly delivering the crucial spot-kick by smashing it home.
Sarina Wiegman’s team encountered a challenging trial as Lauren James received a red card for stamping on Michelle Alozie, leaving them with 10 players. However, Earps remains convinced that “the best is yet to come.”
ٍMary Earps added: “I think it’s an exciting time to be an England player for sure, but we have to earn that right every day.
“And I think that we’re constantly looking to improve and drive performance and drive our standards and I think that that’s the best thing about it.
“We’re not sitting here – of course we’re happy that we’re here and grateful that we’re here, but we’re not satisfied, we’re not done, and there’s still more levels we want to go to,” Mary Earps added.
“I really believe the best is yet to come. I think there’s so much talent in the group, and so many more levels we can go, I really do believe that.”
