FANS hail Gabby Logan’s incredible closing speech after England’s ‘groundbreaking’ Euro win.
Logan hosted BBC coverage of the memorable tournament with pundits Alex Scott and Ian Wright, including yesterday’s final at Wembley.
And after Chloe Kelly’s dramatic overtime win and historic celebrations, Logan rounded out the program with a terrific finale.
She thanked the entire crew and the team at the BBC – both in front of and behind the camera – for the success of the show.
And then she passionately called on the British public to keep pushing women’s football forward after England brought football home.
Logan, 49, said: “Is this a groundbreaking moment?
“Well the record TV ratings and crowds in the stadiums were fantastic, brilliant.
“But to really move the sport forward, we need you.
“If you enjoyed it, come to a WSL game this season, even if you only go to one or two.
“The Lionesses brought football home, now it’s up to the rest of us to make sure it stays here.

“You think it’s all over? It’s only just begun.”
And the responses were deluged with messages of enthusiastic support.
England cricketer Tammy Beaumont said: “I get goosebumps at this news! Well said @GabbyLogan.”
Another wrote: “What a sign off from Gabby Logan. Different sauce.”
A third replied: “Well said so – we will definitely be attending the games next season – please keep pushing this message.
“My little footballer doesn’t face the same obstacles as me to kick a ball – it’s just fab – had the best night ever!”
And a recent user joked, “I think we’ve found our future prime ministers in Ian Wright, Alex Scott and Gabby Logan.”
Wembley erupted in utter chaos when Kelly poked home with ten minutes to go.
And her sky-high reputation rose even further when she gave up her post-game interview to sing along to Sweet Caroline.
Then the Lionesses squad rushed into manager Sarina Wiegman’s press conference, bursting in, belting out It’s Coming Home and dancing on the table in jubilant scenes – while millions across the country celebrated.
