Euro 2022: England’s Beth Mead, Leah Williamson, Keira Walsh and Mary Earps make Team of the Tournament

Four England players have been named in the Women’s Euro 2022 Team of the Tournament after their heroic 2-1 win over Germany in the final on Sunday.

Goalkeeper Mary Earps, centre-back and captain Leah Williamson, midfielder Keira Walsh and Player of the Tournament Beth Mead all made the XI, alongside five Germany players and one from France and Spain.

The line-up was selected by UEFA’s Technical Observer team and includes Germany duo Alexandra Popp – who shared the Golden Boot award with Mead – and Young Player of the Tournament Lena Oberdorf.


XI

Lionesses to face USA at Wembley

The Lionesses are scheduled to face the USA – the reigning world champions – on October 7 at Wembley – if Sarina Wiegman’s side qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup during the international window next month.

England need to earn a point on the road against nearest group rivals Austria on September 3, or beat Luxembourg on September 6, to confirm their spot in Australia and New Zealand next summer.

The European champions are five points ahead of Austria in the race to top Group D and qualify directly for the 2023 World Cup, with two matches remaining for both nations.

Provided England qualify for the tournament, the fixture will be the first meeting between the sides at Wembley, with the USA's last visit to the stadium ending in a 2-1 win over Japan in the gold-medal match at the 2012 Olympic Games.
