If this tournament is the kick-off for women’s football, as BBC coverage has frequently hoped, it will be interesting to see if more money will change the ruse not just in the penalty area but with agents, with scandals, with unscrupulous crooks who Wanting a piece increases these marketable young people.
alan tyer Details on how women’s football has benefited from BBC cheerleading so far: but asks what’s next?
It is to be hoped that accusations of occasional sexism will gradually fade as women’s football becomes more accepted.
Gary Lineker deleted a tweet amid backlash over a “misogynist” pun he made about Chloe Kelly’s goal celebration after scoring the winning goal.
Whatever comes next Luke Edwards names three lessons English men can learn from the lionesses.
Next, the new Prime Minister – whoever that may be – is hoping that the Women’s World Cup can be brought to Great Britain after England’s triumph.
The Telegraph has been informed that Liz Truss will be reviewing a bid for the 2027 tournament or later editions with the country’s football associations, following Rishi Sunak’s commitment.
Truss attended the game on behalf of the government, while Sunak watched it at a pub in Salisbury, Wiltshire, after meeting members of the Tory party on the campaign trail.
However, the government was forced to play the role of spoilsport after the Work and Pensions Secretary said England did not need an extra bank holiday to celebrate the win.
For many of the 17.4 million viewers who tuned in to watch the final on the BBC, it was a first taste of women’s football.
But the road to the lionesses’ fame was long. From the warm-ups to the group matches to the final itself, here’s how they achieved victory.
Many people applauded the lack of play and argy-bargy in women’s football, but the gripping final put all that aside in good old-fashioned, spiteful affair.
Luke Edwards shows how England mastered the dark arts against Germany and we should applaud them for that.
After their complaints about a possible penalty after the loss, Ross Clark says the Germans need to get their act together and learn how to lose a game.

Around the world: Former Putin adviser hospitalized
A longtime Kremlin adviser who resigned after the invasion of Ukraine and left Russia was hospitalized, with some opposition figures fearing he may have been poisoned. Anatoly Chubais, a key figure behind Russia’s post-Soviet economic transformation, played a largely ceremonial role as Vladimir Putin’s climate adviser when he left Moscow in March in what was seen as a tacit protest against the war. However, he has not spoken out against the President or the invasion. A family friend of Mr Chubais said the 67-year-old reform veteran was taken to intensive care at a European clinic and diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder. In the war, the first cargo of Ukrainian grain left the port of Odessa this morning.
