Quotes

"The first emotion I'm feeling is a sense of pride for the team. To show that kind of resilience, to come back from a goal down, the players have been immense with their character to come back in that game. The names of these players, this team, will go down in English football history - but make no mistake, this journey is not over," Mark Sampson, England coach.
