Outcry at FA Tweet as Womens team fly back from Canada


 

The Football Association has deleted an "unfortunate" social media post in which it said England's women's team were "going back to being mothers" after returning from the World Cup.

The @England  Twitter post read: "Our #Lionesses go back to being mothers, partners and daughters today, but they have taken on another title - heroes."

The message was deleted and the same wording in an online story was changed.

An FA source told the Press Association it had been "unfor­tunately phrased" but social media channels were in uproar at the error.
