Lionesses captain Leah Williamson She admits she is “looking forward” to the challenge of fighting for her place in coach Sarina Wiegman’s competitive starting line-up. She said: “Obviously it’s the first time that me and Millie have been back together in the team for a long time, so it’s nice from that standpoint.”

“I think we have a really strong team. I mentioned how well they performed and how much they raised their level when they came back, so it’s good to be back. When you’re trying to get into a team, it makes you competitive and I’m looking forward to the challenge, as is everyone.”
