Music lovers at the Glastonbury Festival will still be able to get their fill of Women’s World Cup action after organisers agreed to screen England’s big quarterfinal clash against Norway on Thursday night.
The decision to show the match on the big screens came following a direct plea to organisers from Lionesses midfielder Georgia Stanway.

Sure enough, the festival replied to confirm that the England match would indeed be shown on the West Holts Stage.
We are delighted to be able to announce that – of course! – we’ll be screening The @Lionesses‘ Women’s World Cup quarter-final against Norway on Thursday, on the West Holts Stage’s big screens.

Having made three appearances in France so far this summer, Stanway is likely to feature for the Lionesses face Norway at the Stade Oceane in Le Havre. After her timely assist, her brother will also be watching on from the middle of a field in Somerset.

Ashley Young’s new tattoo
In what has become something of an annual tradition, Ashley Young has spent his summer break adding to his tattoo portfolio.
The Manchester United full-back/winger thanked his artist on Instagram after spending two days at Forever Bound tattoos in Bristol having a huge two-part piece inked across his entire back.
Day one saw Young have a quotation reading “Nothing or no one can hold you back when you realise” tattooed across his shoulders.
Day two saw a large image of a young child standing in front of a football terrace added beneath.
While former United teammates Alex Buttner and Tyler Blackett congratulated Young on his tattoo in the adjacent comment section, several fans piped up to criticise the defender for focusing more on his appearance than improving his crossing ability.
