Let all schoolgirls play football & make PE lessons 2 hours a week, demand Lioness heroes after Euros glory | The Sun

LIONESS heroes have written to Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss demanding all schoolgirls get access to football and two hours of PE lessons.

The squad also asked the Tory leadership contenders to commit to investing in and supporting female PE teachers.

Currently only 63 per cent of girls have the chance to play football during PE classes.

While guidelines recommend English schools offer up two hours of PE, it isn't compulsory.

The Lionesses said: "We have made incredible strides in the women's game, but this generation of school girls deserve more.

"They deserve to play football at lunchtime, they deserve to play football in PE lessons and they deserve to believe they can one day play for England. We want their dreams to also come true."
