Gabby Logan has received universal praise for her sign-off after England’s historic Euro 2022 final win against Germany.
The TV presenter, who was hosting BBC’s broadcast of the match, ended the show by emphatically saying: “Is this a game-changing moment? Well, the record audiences on TV and crowds in the stadiums has been fantastic, brilliant.
“But to really move the sport on, we need you. If you’ve enjoyed it, get yourself along to a WSL [Women’s Super League] game this season, even if you only go to one or two.
“The Lionesses have brought football home. Now it’s down to the rest of us to make sure it stays here. You think it’s all over? It’s only just begun. From all of us, goodbye.”
People on social media were quick to sing Logan’s praises, with Sky News anchor Sarah-Jane Mee tweeting: “Epic sign-off from Gabby Logan, ‘Lionesses have brought football home now it’s up to us to keep it here. Think it’s all over…it’s only just begun’.”
One person wrote: “Gabby Logan cemented herself as the greatest TV presenter of a generation throughout #WEURO2022 on #BBCEuros. An icon. The absolute best. Spine-tingling shades of Des Lynam and Kipling’s ‘If’ at the end of World Cup 98 here. Logan is a mensch.”
Someone else tweeted: “Yeah this really is superb. What a perfect way to sign off from the tournament. It couldn’t be bettered. Good ‘love it Gabs’ from the brilliant Ian Wright in the background too.”
The final broke the record for the most watched women’s football match on British TV, as it attracted 17.4million viewers.
87,000 were in attendance at Wembley making it the highest ever attended Euro match, both for men and women.
