Out On Blue Six: Paul Weller

You catch me in a very happy mood. The Lionesses have done something that no other England side has done since Ron Greenwood's 1982 male team; they've come top of their round in a major tournament with a 100% success rate. Three games, three wins and only one goal conceded to Portugal in tonight's game. This Jam track, performed live by Weller on Jools Holland's Later, is dedicated to all our wonderful England Ladies, but especially to striker Jodie Taylor

The Birkenhead born Arsenal player shot straight into the record books last week scoring a magnificent hat-trick against Scotland in our opening game which resulted in a 6-0 victory; a fine statement of intention for the tournament. Taylor became the first Englishwoman ever to score a hat-trick in a major competition and can now stand alongside the likes of fellow hat-trickers Gary Lineker and Sir Geoff Hurst. 

Well done to all of them. It's France in the quarter final on Sunday, keep on doing us proud!

End Transmission
