Provisional Euro's Squad is announced
Sarina Wiegman has named a 28-player provisional England squad for the 2022 UEFA Women’s EURO
Sunday, 22 May 2022
Leah Williamson will lead the Lionesses supported by Millie Bright and Ellen White as vice-captains while Sandy MacIver, Steph Houghton, Fran Kirby, Lucy Staniforth and Chloe Kelly make welcome returns to
the fold. Jill Scott is also named as she too works on her fitness, but Jordan Nobbs has been ruled out for the summer because of a knee injury.
The final 23-player selection is due to be confirmed in mid-June ahead of the EURO finals starting with England’s fixture against Austria at Old Trafford, Manchester on Wednesday 6 July in exactly 50 days’ time.
Sarina Wiegman said: “The EUROs are getting closer, and this is a big step towards the tournament. We have a settled squad and I know we have players in our team that will give everything to make it a summer
“It is important the players have the chance to get some rest now after a very busy season before we get back to our work. We then have a series of prep camps coming up and it is important we use this time to build an even closer connection on and off the pitch.
“We also look forward to welcoming those who have been working individually and with their clubs on their fitness in the past few weeks.
We are hoping to have them back on the pitch when the series of precamps start, so we can see where they are at.”
