“My knee got flung one way, then the other –– it was nice to get that movement out of the way.

“Although I really believe in the process and what I’ve done in my rehab to not have to be scared about doing it.”

Mead also painted a picture on the emotional scenes after the game. “There was lots of tears.

“My dad was there and it was his first game watching me since the Euro final.
