Wubben-Moy has not made the number of likes on the post available to the public – however, it has been liked by a few of her international teammates, including Lauren Hemp and Manchester United’s Alessia Russo.
Several fans also left a comment on the post, praising her for the work she has done to give women’s football the pedestal it deserves.
She penned an open letter to the UK Government in an exclusive piece on BBC Sport. In the letter, she wrote: “Football was part of my identity. It helped me find a clear path in one of the biggest cities in the world. I’d have been pretty lost without it.
“Imagine how many future Lionesses you could pick out in every playground across the nation with every school now offering equal access to football. Well, that is now the reality the Lionesses squad of 2022 dreamed of.
“By making girls’ football more accessible, we have opened a crucial door for the growth of women’s football as a whole. And if we want to look at our Lionesses and see a team that represent the whole nation, this is one among many key steps to ensuring our national team become more diverse, stronger, and more successful many years into the future.
“Long live street football. I’ll forever be indebted. Let girls play. LWM”
