England boss Sarina Wiegman believes that England has a good shot of going all the way to Euro 2022. She also hopes that the WSL develops more as well as the long-overdue maternity pay regulations. England Women have been in scorching form winning all of their six games since Weigman took over, scoring 53 goals in the process. The Arnold Clark Cup where they will take on Spain, Germany, and Canada will be a true test of their transformation.

“I think the England team is pretty far [prepared],” Sarina Wiegman said about her Euro 2022 hopes. “We started in September, I think we had three very good camps and very good games. And now we need the tournament in February in which we play Canada, Spain, and Germany. Those are top-level teams. And then we know where we are. I think the next Euros is the biggest women’s event in Europe. So many countries have developed and still are developing very quickly. So it’s going to be a very competitive tournament.”

“I think then, lots of women quit football because there was no perspective. That’s what is so beautiful now, there is a perspective,” she said. “Back then there was nothing. I actually wanted to play. We have two daughters now, who are already teenagers, but we waited. And it’s not that you just decide to have kids but we waited with our wish to have kids because I wanted to play football. Now it’s different, you’re pregnant for a while, but when it’s arranged you have a choice.”
