It's great that the BBC have listened and gave this important game the prominence it deserved. Despite the result, I hope it gave the players a boost to know that the country was behind them as they entered their final preparations for the match. This will help build the profile of women's sport and inspire more young people to get involved.
Tracey Crouch MP said, "I am delighted that the BBC responded to the demands of its licence fee payers and agreed to show England's world cup quarter final match on one of its main channels. This is an important step forward in advancing the appreciation of women and girls football, the number one female participation sport in the UK.”
