Karen Carney: "This used to be the stuff only little boys' dreams were made of"

I was on a train this week and a little boy was reading the back page of the paper, all about the Lionesses' win. He didn't put it down or turn the page. He read it like it was a norm for there to be women's football on this page. He read it like it was a sports page, which of course it was. He didn't see anything different. They were all role models to him. That's what's changed now.

England vs Germany: Karen Carney, Sue Smith and Faye White reflect on 2009 final ahead of Euro 2022 showdown

England's showdown with Germany on Sunday is a well-trodden path - it will be a replay of the Euro 2009 final, in which Germany ran out as 6-2 winners. The game came at a time of supreme dominance for the Germans in international women's football. Their victory in Finland on September 10 saw them secure their seventh European Championships title, while the Lionesses featured in their second final.
