Sarina Wiegman expresses that England is uplifted by the significant backing they have received from supporters in anticipation of the World Cup final.
England faces Spain on Sunday in the much-awaited Women’s World Cup final, aiming to secure their first-ever championship title.
Boss Wiegman said before the World Cup final: “It’s incredible what happened. We felt the support, we felt the support here, but also from the other side of the world in the UK. That’s something that we dream of.
“I feel privileged. I’m very happy in the place where I am now. There’s a lot of support, we have everything we need to perform at the highest level. It is a pleasure to work with these incredible people.”
When questioned about the reintegration of Lauren James, who might make a starting appearance on Sunday after her two-match suspension due to a red card against Nigeria in the last 16, Wiegman provided a brief response.
She said: “Of course she kept training and it’s really nice to have 23 players available for tomorrow.”
