Nikita Parris says England forwards are ready to produce on the big stage

It’s a dream come true to be in this England squad for the World Cup.

We know there’s expectation on us to deliver. We’ve been to two semi-finals in the past four years, so now it’s about taking that extra step and getting to the final.

We’ve got a fantastic group of strikers and attackers in the 23.

We push each other every single day and there’s a really good dynamic among us.


We all know we are fighting for places but we encourage each other and make sure we get the best out of each other because in any given moment it could be one of us that has to deliver on the big stage.

And whenever there is competition for places that means there is no complacency. We’re all pushing each other to the maximum.

I experienced the Euros in 2017 and that was amazing. Now it’s time for a World Cup.
