    “This is for the next generation and potentially the next Lioness: you don’t have to be the best at something to make your dreams come true, just look at me.”

    “Hard work, dedication, passion, and love for what you do are a great recipe. Don’t ever let someone tell you you can’t do something or achieve your dreams.”

    “I was once told I couldn’t play in the boys’ team and I would never play for England. Now I am retiring having made 113 caps with 52 goals for England and a European champion.”
