The England goalkeeper, Carly Telford, has criticised the efforts of France as Women’s World Cup hosts, describing the tournament as “a balloon that deflated quickly” and has called for the Football Association to learn from the mistakes by making the 2021 home European Championship the “best competition in women’s football history”.

“I felt the crowds were good, especially the England fans – when we were up north they were amazing – but the feedback from friends and families and people that were involved was that it wasn’t well hosted,” the Chelsea goalkeeper said. “A lot of the towns and cities weren’t as kitted out or as football-friendly as they needed to be and I think we can learn from that.
