Fellow sports stars and fans rallied round a devastated Laura Bassett after her own goal sent Mark Sampson's side crashing out of the Women's World Cup last night.
As soon as the match ended she was surrounded by teammates and consoled by coach Sampson, while many fans took to social media to praise Bassett.
Fellow England player Casey Stoney, former striker Gary Lineker and comedian John Bishop were among those to back the 31-year-old Notts County defender.
Coach Sampson also paid tribute to Bassett after the final whistle, saying she "epitomised" the side during the tournament.
She's been courageous, strong and kept this team together. She didn't deserve that but she'll be looked upon as a hero, an absolute hero. People will remember the Laura Bassett who headed and blocked and tackled and kept this team together.
