Football Association chief executive predicts England's Euro 2022 win will 'turbo charge' women's game

Football Association chief executive Mark Bullingham insists England’s Euro 2022 success will “turbo charge” the women’s game in this country. Chloe Kelly’s extra-time goal sealed a 2-1 victory as the Lionesses claimed the first major trophy in their history and the first for a senior England side since the 1966 World Cup triumph over West Germany. “The last few years have been incredible. We have invested really heavily and the Lionesses have taken their opportunity and they have produced something incredible. It’s been an amazing month and an amazing day yesterday,” he told BBC Breakfast. “I think it will really turbo charge everything we have been doing in the women’s game. “There is no reason why we shouldn’t have the same number of girls playing as boys and it will inspire a whole new generation of players.”
