Arsenal’s Leah Williamson, Lotte Wubben-Moy, Beth Mead and Nikita Parris have been named in Sarina Wiegman’s provisional 28-woman squad for this summer’s European Championships.
However, England have confirmed that Gunners midfielder Jordan Nobbs will miss the tournament due to a knee injury she sustained in the penultimate game of the season against Aston Villa.
Nobbs missed the 2019 World Cup with a knee injury and was a surprise omission from last summer’s Olympic squad. She also picked up an injury during the 2015 World Cup which restricted her to one appearance during that tournament.
Williamson will captain England for this summer’s tournament on home soil. The provisional squad of 28 will be whittled down to 23 in mid-June. The tournament kicks off on July 6th with England v Austria at a sold out Old Trafford.
Let the preparations begin 💪
