Paige Williams has spoken of the belief within the England team that has helped propel them to Saturday’s UEFA European Women’s U19 Championship final.
Mo Marley’s side face France in a repeat of the 2010 showpiece after coming through the group stage unbeaten and comfortably defeating Finland 4-0 in the semi-final.
The left-back has scored two penalties en route to the final and she revealed the growing conviction among the players during this tournament.
She said: "I think once we believed we could get out of the group then it was like, 'we can go all the way here'.
"It's been drilled into everyone that we can actually go all the way and hopefully that's what we'll do.
"Mo gives us words of wisdom every single game. She drills into us that every game is going to be a tough game.
“Then, when we do go 1-0 up, that's when we seem to get a few more goals – it's just belief within the team that does it for us.”
