Ella Toone Euro 2022

England forward Ella Toone believes that winning the Euro 2022 would mean everything to the team and the country. She also believes it will go a long way in inspiring the next generation of footballers. The tournament is set to start on July 6 and finish on July 31 with the Netherlands looking to defend the title that they won in 2017. Toone has already scored 10 goals in her 13 caps for England. 

“I’m really excited for the Euros – it’s going to be a great summer of football. Hopefully, we can get as many people as we can to games and to get involved with women’s football,” England forward Ella Toone said about Euro 2022. “It [winning the tournament] would mean everything and that’s what you want to do, you want to win major tournaments with your country. But I think, for us, it’s about going there, enjoying ourselves and making ourselves and each other proud and, more importantly, making the nation proud and inspiring a load of young girls to get involved in football.”

“It just shows how much the women’s game has grown that we want to sell out bigger stadiums,” she added. “We’ve done really well in our group games to sell out our stadiums and hopefully they can do the same in that stadium. I’m sure there will still be loads of fans watching and supporting.”

“Grassroots is a big part of my journey and I just want to give back. It’s so important; everyone has a different journey and it all starts at the grassroots,” she continued. “My dad used to take me down to the local football club and I used to play on the side of the pitch with my brother, my cousins, and all the lads and then I went and played for Astley & Tyldesley Girls.”
