David Beckham thanks women's football team for inspiring his daughter
"I know that there's one person who is really excited to see it, and that is my daughter Harper."
David Beckham has thanked England's women's football team for inspiring his 11-year-old daughter Harper.
The team, who are known as the Lionesses, defeated Sweden last night with a score of 4-0, which secured their place in the Euro 2022 final.
In the final, the English squad will take on either France or Germany, who face each other today in Milton Keynes. The four goals were scored by Beth Mead, Lucy Bronze, Alessia Russo and Fran Kirby. The game marked the first time the women's team secured their place in a major final since 2009.
Wishing the team luck in a video shared on social media, Beckham spoke about how his daughter was inspired watching them.
"Congratulations on an incredible tournament so far," David said. "It's been so uplifting, it's been so exciting and it's been so inspiring.
"And for me personally, you know, I have a daughter, so for her to be inspired by you girls and your performances has been incredible."
He continued: "But it's not just the girls that are getting inspired, the boys are getting inspired as well by this and we all know that when big tournaments come around our country and our fans get behind us like no other, so it's been incredible to see the performances but me personally, the game against Spain is really what brings the nation together, so to win a game like that in that manner, it really has uplifted the whole country.
"So, good luck for the semi-final, we're all behind you, we're all excited to see it, and I know that there's one person who is really excited to see it, and that is my daughter Harper, so thank you for inspiring her and good luck girls."
