England’s Euro 2022 winning goal-scorer Chloe Kelly was left perplexed during a TV interview with Richard Madeley on Tuesday. The Good Morning Britain presenter referred to her as ‘Coco’, which is what he calls his daughter, while discussing her extra-time Wembley winner that saw Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses leave victorious.
Kelly started the match on the bench as Ellen White led the line for England, making a nuisance of herself in and around the box. But it was Wiegman’s substitutes who made the telling impact as Ella Toone opened the scoring with a deft chip and Kelly poked home in extra time.
The Manchester City forward instantly became a big name after starring in an iconic moment for English international football. On Tuesday, two days after her Wembley triumph, she was interviewed on Good Morning Britain to discuss what many see as a huge step in popularity for the women’s game.
Madeley left viewers confused, however, by rounding off the interview with: “Chloe – or ‘Coco’ as I call my daughter Chloe – Coco, thank you very much indeed for coming in.” Kelly managed a smile but, along with those watching at home, seemed caught off guard by the comment.
Expectedly, the exchange sparked an instant reaction on social media and @Daniel_Sugarman pointed out a potential double standard, explaining: “I have to say, I cannot imagine a young male player player who’d just scored the winning goal for England in a final going on TV and being told “Colin – or ‘Col-Col’ as I call my son Colin – Col-Col, thank you very much indeed for coming in.”
Meanwhile, @OnceByton added: “Patronising. Just as news got overtaken by entertainment so entertainment gets overtaken by a dreary assumption that everyone is friends and we are just as interested in the host as the guest. She deserves better and that celebration nailed it.”
