I will admit I am not a football fan (male or female teams), but living and growing up in London, it is impossible to do or not take notice when England is playing. This diary style retelling of the euros was perfect, translating the feeling of pressure Beth felt in training sessions, games and tournaments, from her experience with homesickness and shyness when she was younger to having to adapt to a post-European champion who can’t go to McDonald’s without getting recognised life. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. It's inspiring, well-written, and filled with anecdotes of some of the most important moments in Beth Mead's life– from signing with her now-club Arsenal to winning the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 with England's Lionesses– and everything in between.

I love Beth Mead and I became especially fascinated by her during the Euros when she ended up being the top scorer. This book gave us an insight into Beth as a person and the struggles and hurdles she went through to get to where she is today. Beth takes a dive into her own personal life and what has happened over her career which helps her strive to be the best player, she takes difficult events in her life and uses them to power her mentality for the game. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. One thing that really strikes me and is very evident is the pay and resource difference between the male and female players.Especially when our ‘culture’ seems to enjoy nothing more than pulling people down when they’ve reached the top.

Now, Beth shares the challenges that shaped her, what she faced on the journey to the top, and the life events that made her stronger, from being dropped from the England squad and receiving devastating family news to finding her best form under the guidance of Jonas Eidevall and Sarina Wiegman. Sarina Wiegmann was the catalyst for the women's team achieving success, bringing a strong work ethic but also valuing each player as an individual. It was so fascinating to know the background to this great player, and really just made it even more impressive how far both she and women’s football has come. A very inspiring story that journals Beth Mead's football career from the start all the way up until the infamous Euros win. You don’t know what is going on in other people’s lives, what challenges they have overcome, or are keeping hidden.They’ve transformed women’s football and I’m so excited to continue to follow and support the growth of the game.
