The letter was signed by all members of the squad and released on social media by the official Lionesses Twitter account as well as on several players' own Twitter feeds, read: "Dear Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss, "On Sunday evening history was made.

. So we made our own teams, we travelled across the country and despite the odds, we just kept playing football. "Women’s football has come a long way. But it still has a long way to go. "We ask you and your government to ensure that all girls have access to a minimum of two hours a week PE. Not only should we be offering football to all girls, we also need to invest in and support female PE teachers too. "Their role is crucial and we need to give them the resources to provide girls’ football sessions. They are key role models from which so many young girls can flourish. "We have made incredible strides in the women’s game, but this generation of school girls deserve more. They deserve to play football at lunchtime, they deserve to play football in PE lessons and they deserve to believe that they can one day play for England. We want their dreams to also come true. "This is an opportunity to make a huge difference. A change that will impact millions of young girls’ lives. We - the 23 members of the England Senior Women’s Euro squad - ask you to make it a priority to invest into girls’ football in schools, so that every girl has the choice.
