"My first memories of global football are of house parties filled with flags, finger food and football dreams", said Paige Cooper. "Gareth Southgate and his men have awakened my interest enormously".

Southgate lowered expectations before the tournament, highlighting his team's youth and inexperience, with the result that the public was ready to be forgiving and began to view the side nearly as underdogs.
