‘It was a surreal day and I was just thinking I can’t believe I am here, and people want my picture when I was really nervous but everyone was lovely. I’d love to come back again. I’d like to play a serial killer.’

On her ambitions for life post-Euros, Lauren said: ‘One of our many goals as the Lionesses over the Euros was to inspire as many girls and boys as possible to be involved in football and it’s important we keep doing that so if you’re playing football then keep doing it or give it a go if you have never tried. 

‘I had many people in the past tell me that I couldn’t do something but its important that you believe in yourself, you don’t listen to anyone. I think this summer has proved that girls can play football too.’
