Alessia Russo exclusive: England forward hungry for more trophies and bigger crowds after Euro 2022 win

Alessia Russo hopes England’s historic Euro 2022 triumph is the catalyst for more trophies for club and country, and bigger crowds watching the women’s game.

Manchester United forward Russo was one of England’s stars of the tournament, scoring four goals – including a stunning backheel against Sweden in the semi-finals – as the Lionesses won a major international tournament for the first time.

England’s memorable campaign culminated at Wembley on Sunday, where 87,192 fans – a record attendance for a men’s or women’s European Championship final – watched Sarina Wiegman’s side overcome Germany 2-1 in extra-time, and the whole experience has left Russo “hungry for more”.

Reflecting on Euro 2022, she exclusively told Sky Sports News: “It’s been amazing, my first major tournament. A lot of the girls were saying, ‘It’s not always like this!’

“The group we’ve had on this camp has been unbelievable. The talent has always been there in England, even the ones that don’t play anymore that have retired, they’re supporting us always and have paved the way for us to win those trophies.

“Everything about this team is special; the players, the staff, the support we were given really set us up for success.”

Russo continued: “My first major trophy, it makes me so hungry for more. I hope we see more fans in the stadiums at WSL games, that’s what we want, we want to fill out stadiums week-in, week-out.
