England Women defender Jill Scott will embark on her 10th major tournament at Euro 2022. She has learned from her 156 international appearances to enjoy every moment of the journey. At the age of 35, she understands that she cannot play every minute of each game. Scott is without a club after she left Manchester City following the expiry of her contract.

“I just had a cup of tea and as we were all back home this weekend it was quite nice to catch up with the girls,” England Women defender Jill Scott said. “I am so excited, I’m like a kid again. It’s an incredible feeling to be going into a home euros with such a talented squad. I’m so excited about this journey, it’s like going on a rollercoaster and I am going to be the one at the back with my hands up in the air. I want to go and enjoy it all take it all in. I don’t want to miss a second – I am going to have my eyes open at the back of this ride.”

“I’m really hoping during this tournament I can be a big help off the pitch as well. It’s no secret that I haven’t had a massive amount of game time over the last year for England but I am trying to help the girls in other ways too,” she added. “I still massively believe that I can add value on the pitch. I don’t want people thinking I am solely here for off-pitch involvement. I’m training every day at such a high standard, I made sure I was fit [having missed the end of the WSL season with a knee injury] and ready to compete for a place and then got picked, so I think it’s kind of finding that balance.”
