Match Reaction

England Manager Sarina Wiegman: “I’m very happy, of course, with this score and how we were on the pitch. These are hard games because they were defending hard the whole game and it was very tight,” she added. “You have to just stay patient and all the players that came on made a difference, so that’s very nice. The substitutes brought us more energy and pushed us higher on the pitch. I think it was [Mead’s] the first touch, and it wasn’t even an easy one from the corner! It was so nice to score the goal and I’m impressed by this team, our team.”

Man of the match Beth Mead: “I can’t put [my emotions] into words – to score a goal at Wembley is genuinely an amazing feeling, to put the shirt on and score for this country.” she added. “To come away with a hat-trick is a special feeling and I’m glad to help the girls get the three points today. The manager just told me to go out there and make a difference, so hopefully, I did that today.”
