A late goal from Ollie Watkins lifted the Three Lions to a slim win over the Orange team securing a place in Sunday’s final against Spain.

Wiegman is a native of the Netherlands but presently works as the head coach of the English women’s national team, the side she had helped to back-to-back finals at the UEFA Women’s Euros and FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The same feat was achieved by Gareth Southgate who also qualified the Three Lions to consecutive Euro finals after a similar feat of losing on penalties to Italy in Wembley.

Wiegman spoke to journalists during her last pre-match press conference ahead of Friday’s Qualifiers against the Republic of Ireland.

“You want a political answer? Of course, I wish the very best for Gareth and his team but it did hurt a little bit, my orange heart hurts.” She said.

Wiegman on if she has any advice for Southgate’s side: “They know exactly what they have to do.

“In England, you would say, let’s bring it home.”

Southgate led the men’s team to the final of Euro 2020 before making it to the final of this year’s tournament.

The same as Wiegman who won the last Women’s Euros with the Lionesses and took the team to the final of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand as the European champions lost 1-0 to Spain.

It is left for Southgate to win the Three Lions’ first major title since the 1966 FIFA World Cup.
