Euro 2022 is set to kick off in England on Wednesday, 8th July as a sold out Old Trafford crowd watches the tournament curtain raiser between England and Austria. That game will feature six Arsenal players across the two squads, with 12 Gunners players representing their country at the tournament. In addition, defender Rafaelle Souza will represent Brazil at the Copa America.
Here is a rundown of all of the Arsenal players at the tournament and their respective schedules.
Leah Williamson will skipper England on home soil, with Beth Mead, Lotte Wubben-Moy and Nikita Parris also in the squad.
Goalkeeper Manuela Zinsberger and right-back Laura Wienroither have been called up for Austria.
Lia Wälti will captain the Swiss, with right-back Noelle Maritz also a key member of the squad.
It won’t come as any kind of shock that Vivianne Miedema, Netherlands’ record goal scorer, will represent the defending champions.
Midfielder Frida Maanum has been selected for England’s group stage opponents.
Defender Simone Boye Sorensen has been called up for Denmark.
Back-to-back Olympic silver medalists Sweden boast Arsenal striker Stina Blackstenius in their ranks.

Proper excited for the tournament, hoping for big things from England and the Arsenal gang. Beth Mead for player of the tournament!
Excellent feature, Tim. Thanks alot for the coverage.
And Steph Cayley and Caitlin Foord can have a much-needed rest.
Also, let’s spare a thought for Jordan Nobbs, who surely would have been in the England squad were it not for her unfortunately timed injury.
I feel so sad for Jordan, she’s been so, so unlucky and she would definitely have been thereif not for yet another dam injury. Sadly her time won’t come again 😕
Unlucky again – but it’s not true at all that her time won’t come again as she turns 30 later this year only & the World Cup is in 2023………….
