There are moments in sport that form the genesis of dreams that inspire the next generations. Earlier this week, we perhaps witnessed yet another of these when England’s Women Football Team came from behind to beat Spain in Euro 2022.

The Lionesses are now through to the semi-finals of the European Championships, in what has already been a record-breaking tournament. This is just the beginning of their success though, and we’re going to tell you exactly why.

A changing tide

England became the highest ever scorers in Euros history by the end of the group stages. A modest 1-0 victory against Austria in the tournament’s curtain-raiser didn’t allude to the goal-fests we’d witness in the remaining two group games.

An 8-0 demolition of Norway was followed by a very solid 5-0 win over Northern Ireland. Interestingly, England Women’s biggest-ever defeat was against Norway and was also an 8-0 dubbing. The female game has really come on leaps and bounds in the past couple of decades.
