England Women: Hannah Hampton shed tears after selection

World Cup 2022

England Women: Hannah Hampton

With just a couple of weeks for the Euros, Hannah Hampton has spoken about the England Women squad selection and the mood in the camp during media day. It was a busy afternoon as the team faced the media for the first time since Sarina Wiegman announced her squad last week. England will look to make the use of home advantage as they enter the tournament as one of the favorites.

“Last week, I was nervous about how it could go and if you told me I would be here now back in November, I would’ve said absolutely not, but I would’ve taken you on your deal,” England Women player Hannah Hampton said. “These last few days, you relax a lot more, you show yourself on the pitch more. I enjoyed last week as well but there’s that added pressure to prove yourself and showcase what you’ve got to the manager. When Sarina told me, I had tears in my eyes right in front of her so I think she knew what it meant to me. To say my first major tournament is going to be a home Euros is pretty special.”

“As soon as I got out with Sarina, I was on the phone [to her family] and crying down it, yelling ‘I’m going to the Euros’. I don’t think one word made sense, I jumbled my words. I think they then gathered from my excitement that I was going so they started yelling back down – it was a great conversation,” she added. “This whole year for me has been big with making debuts, finishing the seasons strongly and now being stood here right now, I haven’t really reflected yet. But once the season’s done and we get some time off, I’ll definitely look back at everything I’ve achieved.”
