Phil Neville has done us proud' - Trailblazing Lionesses delighted by England's World Cup role models

Ahead of the crunch semi-final clash with the USWNT, the team which played at the 1971 tournament reflect on their legacy
When a group of young women flew from England to Mexico in the summer of 1971 to play football, they weren’t expecting much.
After all, football was still not really a sport for girls back at home. They weren’t expecting massive crowds. And they certainly weren’t expecting to be talked about almost half a century later.
Now, as England prepare for the semi-final of the 2019 Women’s World Cup against the USA, the women who blazed a trail nearly five decades ago are together again – and roaring on a new generation of Lionesses.
