Bow-born Lotte Wubben-Moy helped to ‘bring it home’ for England during the Women’s Euro 2022 football tournament.
Defender Lotte, who plays domestically for Arsenal, was part of the England squad who won the cup by beating Germany 2-1 at Sunday’s final.
She is a product of the London 2012 legacy having been inspired to play football at elite level after watching the Olympic Games. Tower Hamlets was one of the five host boroughs and has part of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in the borough.
Back in 2013, she said: “My dream is to play for the England women’s football team.”
Nine years later that dream has become a reality as she helped England to victory.
Lutfur Rahman, Mayor of Tower Hamlets, said:
“On behalf of Tower Hamlets, we want to congratulate the Women’s England football team for making history by winning Euro 2022. A truly monumental achievement.
“And we are incredibly proud that one of the Lionesses, Lotte Wubben-Moy, was born in Bow. Lotte and the whole squad are an inspiration to us all, particularly the girls and young women who will want to follow in her footsteps. We will be there to support them.”
