The Women’s team qualified for their first Euros final since 2009 on Wednesday night, as they demolished Sweden 4-0 at Bramall Lane.

England, who had previously never won the tournament, played their first and last final at home in 1984.

Back then, some players’ husbands were unable to join the crowd of 2,500 at Luton Town’s Kenilworth Road ground because they could not afford the transport.

The game only had halves of 35 minutes instead of 45 and a smaller ball than that played with by men was used.

It comes after Christine stepped out to the football amid her split from husband Paddy.

The couple have been ‘living separate lives for months’ and their June wedding anniversary was a non-event, with neither posting on social media about the occasion.

They confirmed their separation via Instagram earlier this month, but revealed they will continue living together for the sake of their three children with autism.

Christine and Paddy share twins Penelope, and Leo, eight, and Felicity, six, all of whom have been diagnosed with the developmental disorder – and they insist their upbringing remains a top priority. 

Sharing a joint statement, they wrote: ‘We hadn’t planned on sharing this publicly until we were ready but after the lack of privacy surrounding our personal life, we feel left with no other option but to clarify.
