[Lucy Bronze speaks ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Draw] We’re good enough on our day to beat any team in the world. Over the next six or seven months, we need to push ourselves to be the best players we can be, then do it on a big stage

[Lucy Bronze talks about her FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 memories] Finishing third in the last Women’s World Cup in 2015 was amazing. I scored a cool goal against Norway in the last 16. It was the first time an England women’s team had won a World Cup knockout game – we knew we had changed something forever. I also scored the winner against the hosts, Canada, in the quarter-finals in front of 55,000 fans. A few years before we were playing in front of 100 people, so even though the Canadians were shouting ‘You’re rubbish!’ we loved it

[Lucy Bronze speaks ahead of England’s friendly against Germany at Wembley] We’ve come from paying to play. I had to pay for my kit to play on a Sunday and things like that. It definitely makes you appreciate things more and you see things from a different perspective

[England will have to do without star right-back Lucy Bronze at the SheBelieves Cup] Disappointed not to be fit for camp. But a good opportunity to some new faces - good luck ladies. Haven’t missed a single camp and been present at every single game for the past five years. Gonna have massive FOMO [fear of missing out] next week.

[England & Lyon star Bronze beats Rapinoe & Miedema to BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year award] I’m definitely surprised - I wasn’t expecting it. It’s pretty special (being voted by the public) and quite amazing. All the girls that have been nominated are global superstars. I look at the list now and think everyone knows who these girls are so that’s pretty special.

Winning the first time was a surprise - and it is now - but to win a trophy twice is really special as it’s so much harder, to stay at the top level is so difficult, it’s not something that’s easy and I don’t take it for granted one bit

[She said of the Covid-19 pandemic] The players have been given some time off and all been told to stay in our homes and that’s what I’m doing the majority of the time. I’m now home in England, I’ve got my dog here and I’ve two girls who live with me in my house so we’re doing things to keep fit. I have been sent a fitness programme from the club. I’ve got some gym equipment, astroturf in the back garden so not completely away from football

[Asked to pick out her highlights of the year] Winning the Champions League for a successive year. I was pleased with my performance and we put on a real good show for women’s football. The World Cup hit me hard (losing in the semi-finals) but it’s motivated me to do more. I’m really proud in my career the fact there was a time I had to pay to train on a pitch twice a week to now the heights of being paid to play in another country, winning the Champions League, playing at Wembley. To see where women’s football is now, I would never have dreamt about it when I was first getting in to football when I was 12 years old. It’s part of the reason I don’t want my career to end with the buzz that’s around women’s football

[Lucy Bronze says gender should not be a factor in appointment of Phil Neville’s successor] I think now most managers would chop their hand off to be a part of our . Do I think it needs to be a woman? No. Do I think it has to be someone in women’s football? I don’t really think that. In women’s football especially, I don’t think that we see that as a difference, whether it’s a male of a female manager. If they know what they’re doing on the pitch and they can make us a better team, then bring them in and let’s go and win something
