England Women: Leah Williamson

With just a couple of weeks for the Euros, Leah Williamson has spoken about the England Women squad selection and the mood in the camp during media day. It was a busy afternoon as the team faced the media for the first time since Sarina Wiegman announced her squad last week. England will look to make the use of home advantage as they enter the tournament as one of the favorites.

“I hope they’ve responded well [to Williamson being captain]. I want to be someone that is open to that feedback and I’ve got people in the team that would tell me if things weren’t right or they weren’t what they expected,” England Women captain Leah Williamson said. “All the girls have been great, they’ve supported me. I hoped that would be the case but everyone is the same and that’s all I’ve ever asked for.”

“When the squad was announced, naturally there is going to be more pressure but Sarina and the rest of the staff do a good job at taking the pressure off us,” Kiera Walsh said. “The relaxed atmosphere is what we have all the time. She puts an emphasis on us just enjoying it can you can see that in training and the games we’re playing.”

“It’s a massive tournament for us, we know there’s going to be a lot of people watching and all eyes on us and we try and turn that into a positive,” she added. “We take it as an exciting thing, we want to impress and we want to play an attractive style of football. We want to make the nation and the fans proud. It shows again how far we’ve come in the women’s game and what we deserve. It’s mainly excitement but also again what’s to come in the future. We’ve got to keep pushing.”
