Chichester’s Hollie Olding helped England women’s under-17s reach the semi-final of their European championships – and now it’s next stop the World Cup in Japan.
Chichester High School for Girls sixth-former Olding and her team-mates stormed through the group stage of the Belarus tournament, beating Norway, Serbia and the host nation.
They set the record for the highest-scoring team in any European football championships, including senior men and women and futsal.
One dream was dashed when England lost 4-3 to Germany in the semi-final, but they beat Norway 2-1 in the third-place play-off to secure a spot at the World Cup.
