Leah Williamson, England’s captain, is back as Sarina Wiegman’s team attempts to defend the Arnold Clark Cup.

Leah Williamson, England’s captain, rejoins Sarina Wiegman’s team as they prepare to defend the Arnold Clark Cup later in February.

Injury prevented the Arsenal defender from playing in November’s matches against Japan and Norway, but she is still selected along with uncapped goalkeeper Emily Ramsey.

Against February 16 in Milton Keynes, the Lionesses take on South Korea, and on February 19 in Coventry, they play Italy.

On February 22, Belgium will visit Bristol in their final match.

England won the round-robin competition in 2022 by finishing ahead of Spain, Canada, and Germany.

The 26-player roster for this year’s team includes Jess Park, who scored in her debut against Japan after only 79 seconds of play. However, injured Arsenal attacker Beth Mead is among those who are absent.

A recall is also made for Laura Coombs, a midfielder for Manchester City, who last played for the Lionesses in November 2020.

However, Nikita Parris of Manchester United and Bethany England, who transferred from Chelsea to Tottenham in January, have no place among the forwards.

Jordan Nobbs, a midfielder who just transferred from Arsenal to Aston Villa, has also been overlooked, along with Gabby George of Everton and Esme Morgan of Manchester City.

The competition occurs as Wiegman’s team prepares for this summer’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, which is contested between July 20 and August. In 2022, Wiegman’s team became the first team to win the European Championship.

The first Uefa Women’s Finalissima will be held on April 6, and England, one of the favorites to win the tournament, will play Brazil at Wembley to continue their preparations.
