Kirby, the Chelsea star from Caversham, scored twice during England's successful Euro 2022 campaign- the first tournament win for the country since 1966.

Not content with sitting back and being champions, the squad now want to become ambassadors and ensure that this landmark is a springboard for which future generations can build from.

Parts of the statement read:

"Throughout the Euros, we as a team spoke about our legacy and goal, to inspire a nation. We are looking to the future. We want to create a real change in this country and we are asking you, if you were to become Prime Minister on September 5, to help us achieve that change.

"We want every young girl in the nation to be able to play football at school.

"Currently only 63 per cent of girls can play football in PE lessons. The reality is we are inspiring young girls to play football, only for many to end up going to school and not being able to play."
