The Lionesses of England have been named BBC Sports Personality Team of the Year 2022, while head coach Sarina Wiegman has won Coach of the Year.
Wiegman guided England to victory at the Euros this summer, the country’s first major women’s football trophy.
England are unbeaten in 26 games since Wiegman’s appointment in 2021.
Captained by Leah Williamson, the Euros win over Germany also marked England’s first major trophy in football since the men’s World Cup triumph in 1966.
Jill Scott, who retired after the Summer Euros, said: “A huge thank you for everyone’s support. We really had the support of the nation behind us.
“This Christmas, to think that there will be little girls asking for football boots and embarking on their own journey. That’s all we can ask for.”
Wiegman, 53, who was named in 2021 after winning Euro 2017 with the Netherlands, led England to a famous victory in July that catapulted women’s football into the spotlight in England.
“I feel humbled and grateful to win this award,” she said.
“Without this incredible team of players and human beings, we would never have been able to play the way we did. We have an incredible staff. It has been fantastic.
“I was lucky to step into this and work with these players. We played at Wembley of course and we broke records. We made a change in society.
“Now little girls are walking around with our players’ names on the back of their shirts.”
The Lionesses won all six of their Euro matches, top of their group and beat Spain and Sweden to set up a final against Germany.
They demanded a dramatic 2-1 win at Wembley with Ella Toone opening the scoring before Chloe Kelly brought the famous winner back in extra time.
They then qualified for the 2023 World Cup with a record of 100%, without conceding a goal.
The England men won the Team of the Year award last year and Gareth Southgate was named Coach of the Year after their own Euro campaign, where they reached the final but were beaten by Italy on penalties.
