But she admitted to dreaming about what it would mean to beat Germany 50 times a day at Wembley Stadium.

She said yesterday: “It’s going to be such a difficult game. We know Germany are always such a tough opponent and we will give them the utmost respect.

“But like I said, you can’t help but dare to dream a little.”
Scott, 35, is “very confident” about the Lionesses’ chances as they have prepared for any eventuality – including the dreaded penalties.

The midfielder hopes the women can go a step further than the men to inspire an already proud nation.

She added: “We wanted to give the sport the respect it deserves. And if you ask me, I think we ticked all the boxes.

“So I think we’ve now earned the right for the team to go out on Sunday and enjoy it.”
