Women’s Super League stars who shone at Euro 2022 – Leah Williamson, Keira Walsh, Stina Blackstenius and more

England’s march to Euro 2022 glory broke new ground for Sarina Wiegman’s team, but you can expect to see many more of the tournament’s big-name stars in regular Women’s Super League action next season.

Only three of the 18 players used by Wiegman will be plying their trade outside England in 2022/23 – Lucy Bronze at Barcelona, Rachel Daly at Houston Dash and Georgia Stanway at Bayern Munich.

Here we look at the WSL talent who shone this summer and those who will hoping to have a similar impact for their respective clubs when the new campaign kicks off on September 10.

England captain Leah Williamson says she has fulfilled a lifelong dream after leading the Lionesses to Euro 2022 glory

The Lionesses will have a matter of weeks to revel in their Euro triumph, with the new WSL season due to kick off in six weeks’ time and two key World Cup qualifiers to come before it does. Captain Williamson, instrumental to England’s success, was swift to insist that victory over Germany at Wembley should only be regarded as the start of a process rather than the end.

The defender’s leadership was the lynchpin of England’s conquest, guiding her side to glory while only conceding twice all tournament. There were 95 goals scored across 31 games at Euro 2022 – an average of 3.06 per game – but England were only breached two times during 600 minutes of football.

The England team crashed Sarina Weigman’s press conference singing ‘Football’s coming home’ after they won Euro 2022

Phenomenal handling combined with some wonderful shot-stopping made Mary Earps one of England’s stars at Euro 2022. She was named in UEFA’s Team of the Tournament after another fine display in the final, thwarting two particularly dangerous openings from Lea Schuller and Lina Magull.

She also kept her calm during a goalmouth scramble in the first period, with Williamson clearing off the line. She was a rock at the back for the Lionesses, before leading mischievous post-match celebrations at Wiegman’s concluding press conference – evidence of the goalkeeper’s uncompromising personality.
