Lioness forward Georgia Stanway tweeted the Somerset event asking if it would be streamed on site – worried her festival-going brother would miss out on Thursday’s match.

Footie ace Stanway tweeted: “Hi @GlastoFest I’ve got a favour to ask. My brother is there on Thursday, can you screen our quarter final game please? #Lionesses”

Fans of the squad jumped in supporting Georgia, urging Glasto to show the game.

One fan said: “They showed the men’s footy a few years back when I was there, get the women on the pyramid stage screen.”

While another added: “Yes, this has absolutely got to happen! Come on girls!”

Glastonbury Festival organisers were quick to show their allegiance to the Lionesses.

Quoting Georgia’s tweet, Glastonbury said: “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. Kick-off is 8pm (@StanwayGeorgia, we’ll look out for your brother!) #TheLionesses”

Walker, a right-back for the men’s national side, made it clear the boys are backing the Lionesses all the way tomorrow.

Commending Glastonbury’s decision to show the game, Walker said: “Yes @GlastoFest, you know it made sense! Let’s all get behind @StanwayGeorgia and the Lionesses.”

The tweet has received an overwhelming amount of responses with one fan commenting: “Yes Kyle! I love that!”

A second said: “Lion supporting the lionesses.”

Georgia thanked Walker and virtually high-fived the defender.

Pride in England’s national sides follows the success of Gareth Southgate’s squad in the men’s 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The relatively inexperienced team, which included Walker, made it to the semi-finals but sadly lost to Coratia.
