The win was England’s first in a major competition since the 1966 World Cup and has been praised as a generational moment for women’s sport.

"It’s a genuine money-can’t-buy experience. It’s really easy to enter, for every Eat Well product you buy, this equals one entry to the competition.
"So, the healthier you eat the more chance you have to win. Plus, you have the chance to win loads of other great prizes including great-tasting Eat Well products across a wide range of items.”
The competition is open from August 1 to September 27 across all stores.
As well as the once-in-a-lifetime training, there are thousands of other prizes up for grabs including match tickets, kits, equipment, signed merchandise and Eat Well products.
