I am the new girl

The former head of the Football Association has called the lack of a Downing Street reception for England's victorious Lionesses  'disappointing' as  prepares to go on holiday from Wednesday until Sunday. <br>Greg Dyke joined MPs in hitting out at the lack of official recognition for the women's team after their 2-1 Euro 2022 triumph at Wembley on Sunday night.<br>Around 7,000 supporters celebrated the win with the England team in Trafalgar Square yesterday after the team beat  2-1 in extra-time at Wembley Stadium - the country's first major title since 1966.  <br>Mr Johnson did not attend the game due to a Cotswolds party to celebrate his marriage to Carrie Johnson last year.  And he was in Northern Ireland yesterday attending David Trimble's funeral meaning there was no ceremony in Downing Street.<br>There is also growing anger that there was no traditional bus parade - an honour bestowed on the England men's team despite not winning a title since 1966 - with critics pointing the finger at London Mayor Sadiq Khan and the FA in a decision branded 'disgusting'. <br>There were major bus parades through London both in 2003 after England won the Rugby World Cup, and in 2005 when England's cricketers won The Ashes.  The same Ashes team also got a Downing Street reception, as did the one-day side when they won the World Cup in 2019. <br>Mr Dyke, the media executive and former FA chairman, told : 'I think it's disappointing for the players.  What they have achieved is incredible.'   <br>Former sports minister Tracey Crouch said she would be 'horrified' if there was 'nothing' from No 10 after the England women's football team were not given the victory bus parade through  after winning .<br>The Tory MP called on the two Tory leadership candidates,  and , to 'pledge to recognise the Lionesses at their earliest opportunity' following the start of the PM's break tomorrow.  <br>      (image:  )    The former head of the FA has called the lack of reception hosted at Downing Street 'disappointing' as Boris Johnson (pictured) prepares to go on holiday from Wednesday until Sunday<br>      (image:  )    Around 7,000 supporters celebrated the win with the England team in Trafalgar Square Monday after the team beat Germany 2-1 in extra-time at Wembley Stadium on Sunday - the country's first major title since 1966<br>      (image:  )        (image:  )  Former sports minister Tracey Crouch, Tory MP for Chatham and Aylesford, has called on the two Tory leadership candidates, Liz Truss (right) and Rishi Sunak (left), to 'pledge to recognise the Lionesses at their earliest opportunity'<br>A Downing Street source said discussions were continuing about trying to find a time to host the Lionesses.<br>Ms Crouch told MailOnline on Monday: 'If we are going to grasp the opportunity on equality, we really must do better.<br>'There may be a good reason for it, but I do not know why there was no parade for the Lionesses.  There will have been plans in place for the men in the event they had won the Euros last year'.<br>She added that the chance to hold one after the Trafalgar Square party may have passed, because the Lionesses will likely go on holiday - with the Women's Premier League pre-season set to begin in the next three to four weeks.<br>Supporters condemned the decision not to hold a parade, saying on social media that it was a 'real shame' and it would be the 'least that England deserve'.  Others labelled it 'shocking' and 'absolutely disgusting from @MayorofLondon and others in a position to affect this', with one adding: 'Someone have a word.' <br>Safety reasons have been cited for the decision not to hold an open-top bus parade, by sources close to the celebration event. <br>      (image:  )    The England team and staff pose for a photo during the celebration at Trafalgar Square in London yesterday afternoon<br>      (image:  )    England fans gathered at Trafalgar Square in London on Monday for the Euro 2022 victory party - but there was great anger at the lack of bus parade<br>      (image:  )    England's Lionesses go wild with their staff as they celebrated the country's first major title since 1966 yesterday<br>      (image:  )    The Football Association confirmed on Monday 'there would not be a bus parade before or after' the party<br>      (image:  )    2003 - England's victorious Rugby World Cup team on a parade in London in December 2003<br>      (image:  )    2005 - England's cricket team on a bus in London in September 2005 after winning The Ashes<br>  RELATED ARTICLES                      Share this article Share    <div class="art-ins mol-factbox news halfRHS" data-version="2" id="mol-29eb5bf0-11d5-11ed-ab2a-7f57bcd0b2ae" website FA head calls lack of No 10 reception &apos;disappointing&apos;
