England 2-1 Germany LIVE: Lionesses WIN Euro 2022 final as Wembley goes absolutely wild | Football | Sport

Williamson wasn’t the only one to get passionate with a microphone in hand, so too was BBC expert Ian Wright as he called on the Premier League to take command of the Women’s Super League to help grow the game in this country.

He said: “What we want to see is we want people to be able to go to the WSL games. We want to make it easier for those people to go to the WSL games.

“Who does that? Who makes that decision? The players want fans in those stadiums. You’ve got to make it easier for them to get there. Why don’t they have an away end allocation? Why do I as an Arsenal fan have to be a member of all the WSL teams to get to an away game?

“It’s absolutely about what happens now and grassroots. What we want to do is continue to produce the quality that we’ve seen today. This generation of ladies have had to fight and scrap for everything.

“It’s up to the FA, I think the FA should take over grassroots and get rid of all those barriers to get more people into the grounds. For me, someone like the Premier League take over, commercialising the WSL.”

“We need to get more money into the women’s game in order to get more quality teams and start to really blast the women’s game.”
