Sarina Wiegman: England's men can 'bring it home' in Euro 2024

Lionesses manager Sarina Wiegman says England’s men “know exactly what they have to do” to win Euro 2024 and is backing them to “bring it home”.

Dutchwoman Wiegman guided the Netherlands to Euros success in 2017 and the same with England in 2022.

She watched Gareth Southgate’s men beat her home country 2-1 in the semi-finals on Wednesday evening alongside the Lionesses’ players in a hotel in Norwich.

And despite admitting her “orange heart was hurting”, Wiegman is fully supporting England to beat Spain in the final on Sunday in Berlin (8pm BST).

“They know exactly what they have to do. It is their second [Euros] final, which is incredible,” said Wiegman.

“I just wish them all the best and in England you would say, ‘let’s bring it home’.

“We all know that football worldwide is the biggest sport. In England it’s on a different level [which I saw] since I came in and worked here.

“It’s so deep in society and the people support it so much. It’s incredible. I never, ever take it for granted. I think the whole country should be very proud of what the England men do.

“It’s not easy – that’s what we’ve seen too. It’s good to be English at the moment.”
