[Georgia Stanway believes England have sent a statement to the rest of the Women’s World Cup after winning all three of the Group D matches] We came here wanting to get the nine points and wanting to win the three games because that gives us the momentum to progress from there. If we had come second, nothing would have changed for us. We would have stayed the way we were, we’d have played the same way, our character would remain the same, and we’d say the same in the media. That’s important for us and now we’ve come top, nothing changes. We’re still eyes on silverware and we’ll do what we can to lift the trophy at the end. We’re not afraid to say that because what’s the point in coming to a major tournament and not saying that you want to win?.
[Stanway is confident that three wins from three will intimidate their opponents] We’d hope that they fear us. We’d hope that nobody wants to play England. We’re just excited to showcase what we can do. We’ve got three wins in three games and nobody’s done that since , but we’re just excited to go out there and see what we can do. We’ve got the confidence to do it. We’ve got the freedom to do it. We’re just going to go out there and showcase our creativity
[The Manchester City youngster will have given her manager a welcome selection headache] Phil has got the trust of everybody. As you can see pretty much everybody has had the chance to get on the pitch. There’s a few that have obviously not made that yet, but I’m almost certain that they’ll get their opportunity at some point. I think that just shows the depth in our team. You can see that whenever someone scores, the whole bench are up and everybody is trying to celebrate together because we are one. Whether you’re playing, whether you’re not, everyone is just supporting each other. I think that’s just the bond that we’ve got in our team
[It was a bond reflected in her feelings in making her first World Cup start] [It was] Unbelievable. There’s obviously no bigger stage than this and I’ve done it surrounded by the girls that I absolutely love. It’s hard for me to describe because I just loved every minute of it

[England women vs Cameroon women. England forward Georgia Stanway has backed manager Phil Neville’s selection policy] Phil has the trust of everybody. Almost everyone has had the opportunity to get out on the pitch, there are some who haven’t had that yet but I am most certain that they’ll get their opportunity at some point and that shows the depth within our team. Whenever someone scores the whole bench leap up and everyone is celebrating together because we are one, whether you’re playing or not that is just the bond that we have within our team.
[The team selection is already likely to have been decided] It gives you a few days to relax to settle into it, there’s nothing worse than being told hours before kick-off and getting worked up about it, thinking that you’re not prepared so it’s nicer to know in advance. I think as girls it can take longer to get over disappointment so you have a night to sleep on it and you’re fresher in the morning

[England team-mate Georgia Stanway is excited at the emergence of a local rivalry and wants to put down an early marker that City are still the best women’s team in the city] On a personal level, we’ve always had a rivalry with Chelsea - every semi-final we go into we seem to end up with Chelsea. That’s our main rival and always has been. But with another team now in Manchester, there’s another kind of rivalry and it’s almost personal because we want Manchester to be our colour and all about us. All anyone talked about was Manchester City but now Manchester United are on the scene and people will choose sides. We’ve got to make sure they choose Blue
[Stanway has played in front of more than 40,000 in last season’s FA Cup final at Wembley, as well as big crowds with England, but is thrilled to make her first appearance at the Etihad] I knew it was going to be the first game of the season and couldn’t believe it was going to be at the Etihad. For it to be there, it’s massive, it’s just dead exciting. I’ve got so many family members coming and it’s one of them where all the support for training and the hard work, you can give back to your family. They’re going to be watching us on the biggest stage possible.

[Georgia Stanway in Nick Cushing’s final game in charge winning her individual battle with one of the most talented wingers around, Beth Mead] I’m quite enjoying it. I’m just doing a job for the team at the moment. I think, on a personal level, I’ve not done a bad job. I don’t think we could have [said goodbye] any better. Arsenal are an unbelievable side, as we found out on Wednesday, when we didn’t really get the result that we wanted. We made sure that today, we came out and we turned it around. It’s not a bad way to end his six years
