“It felt like a total refresh to go there after the
Euros. Being in the public eye took a little bit of
getting used to. It's definitely not something that
I ever thought would happen or that I say I
particularly love being part of. But I think it's
important to recognise that we have a platform
to help inspire people, to help inspire young girls.”

You’ve sure enough heard of Alessia Russo. After
all, she’s part of the reason for the revival of the
‘It’s Coming Home’ choruses this year. She is
changing the status of football by creating a safe
and celebrated space for women to turn their
sporting dreams into reality.. They say a girl can
only dream. How wrong they were. Covering our
Winter 23 issue, Russo gets to grips with the
noise of the crowd off the pitch and her
christening as 'England’s Golden Girl'.
