After winning Team of the Year, Jill Scott said: ‘Just to be here, such an iconic awards. A massive thank you for everyone’s support. We really had the support of the nation behind us.

‘I’ve been the lucky person to come in with these great human beings to perform like we did.

Earlier in the evening before winning the award, Wiegman said: ‘They are very good footballers and I am very privileged to work with them because they are also very good humans.

‘I can hardly describe how proud I am of them.’

Ella Toone, who scored the opener against Germany, spoke of how she’s now noticed in public as she said: ‘They just shout ‘Tooney’ about ten times until I reply. That’s all we ever wanted, We didn’t have women footballers growing up. We just want to inspire the next generation of girls.’
