Check out Russo and Skinner's surprises for a viral young Red
Over the last few days, you may have seen a young England fan go viral for her epic singing and dancing to ‘Sweet Caroline’ after the Lionesses’ Euro 2022 semi-final triumph over Sweden.
Following the 4-0 win at Bramall Lane, in which United’s Mary Earps, Alessia Russo and Ella Toone all starred, United supporter Tess’s inspired elation from the stands was caught on camera.
The eight-year-old’s brilliant celebrations have been posted online and across social media, and she has since captured the hearts of the nation and beyond.

In the time since Tuesday’s game, the youngster has been the grateful receiver of two tickets to Sunday’s final from the BBC and has one of Alessia’s match shirts from the semi-final signed and on its way to her.
It has no doubt been a dream-come-true week already for Tess, and ahead of Sunday’s final, she has now been surprised by United Women’s head coach Marc Skinner.
Check out the heart-warming interaction between Tess and Marc in today’s episode of United Daily, which looks ahead to this weekend's men's first-team double-header, below.

Tess was then in for a surprise with Skinner joining the call, before offering her the chance to come to an upcoming game and meet the squad.
Marc also had an extra little gift for her in the form of a signed shirt from the entire team, but one on condition: she had to recreate the viral singing and dancing with Skinner!
As you can see via the episode above, Tess was in brilliant form once more and it is an interaction that will certainly put a smile on your face.
“I’m lucky enough to be a father of a young daughter myself and so to see the excitement of young girls and boys’ faces, for what the girls are doing in the Euros, for me, it’s so special.
“Hopefully, it inspires a generation like you to come and make an even bigger difference in the future.”
Well done, Tess! Keep bringing that energy and enjoy your trip to the final on Sunday. We look forward to seeing you this season.
