England Lioness Jill Scott MBE has returned to reality by working a shift at her coffee shop, Boxx2Boxx, after playing a part in England’s triumphant 2-1 Euros victory over Germany.
Scott’s most memorable moment of the final was when she was caught swearing at German player Sydney Lohmann after she was pulled to the ground – the scene became an internet sensation.
The 35-year-old Manchester City player is one of England’s most capped players, surpassing 150 caps and playing in nine major tournaments since her 2006 debut.

The footballer tweeted: ‘Back to reality and I love it! Shift done at Boxx2boxx coffee shop. Thanks to everyone that came to say hello! Your support is really appreciated.’
