England hero Georgia Stanway explains 'surreal' Declan Rice message after epic winner

“We’re just happy to have taken the next step against Spain and will enjoy these next six days, putting the work on the grass to focus on the semis. You kind of just forget about everything else. We’re in our little zone of focusing on what we do.”

Away from the glory of her match-winning thunderbolt in front of millions of TV viewers, for Stanway it is the more mundane tasks that are essential to winning football matches. “Just the grit, the dirty work, getting up to the ball, putting the tackles in, making sure to challenge their decision making and making them comfortable,” she said humbly.

“We rattled them in areas and made them feel comfortable. We were able to execute our game plan and, yeah, it worked.”
