England boss Sarina Wiegman has announced her squad for the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Here, we take a look at the 23 Lionesses heading to the tournament, which starts on July 20.


Mary Earps (Manchester United. Age: 30. Caps: 33. Goals: 0)

Started all six games for the Lionesses at Euro 2022 and winner of the Women's Super League Golden Glove Award for 2022-23 after setting a new record of 14 clean sheets.

Ellie Roebuck (Manchester City. Age: 23. Caps: 11. Goals: 0)

Overcame a long-term calf injury to make Wiegman's Euro 2022 squad and will challenge for the No1 spot in Australia and New Zealand.

Hannah Hampton (Aston Villa. Age: 22. Caps: 2. Goals: 0)

Having been left out of Wiegman's squad for eight months after Euro 2022 due to personal reasons, fine form during an impressive WSL season for Villa propelled her back into the reckoning.


Jess Carter (Chelsea, Age: 25. Caps: 17. Goals: 1)

Carter was on the periphery at Euro 2022 but her versatility made her integral to Chelsea's success as they completed a third successive domestic double.

Lucy Bronze (Barcelona, Age: 31. Caps: 104. Goals: 12)

The FIFA World Player of the Year in 2020 and England's most-capped player in the squad has recovered after keyhole knee surgery in April.

Alex Greenwood (Manchester City. Age: 29. Caps: 74. Goals: 5)

Another of the Lionesses' most experienced players and a Champions League winner with former club Lyon, the centre-back will be appearing at her third successive World Cup.

Millie Bright (Chelsea, Age: 29. Caps: 66. Goals: 5)

An ever-present for England at Euro 2022, the Chelsea star is hoping to make a full recovery in time to captain the Lionesses Down Under after missing the last two months of the WSL season.

Niamh Charles (Chelsea. Age: 23. Caps: 6. Goals: 0)

Joined Chelsea from hometown club Liverpool in 2020 and has now established herself as a key player for Emma Hayes' double-winning Blues.

Esme Morgan (Manchester City. Age: 22. Caps: 4. Goals: 0)

A fractured leg in September 2021 delayed her England debut but the defender has been tipped as a future Lionesses captain by City boss Gareth Taylor.

Lotte Wubben-Moy (Arsenal. Age: 24. Caps: 10. Goals: 0)

Got no playing time at Euro 2022 but racked up the minutes in the WSL in the absence of injured Arsenal team-mate Leah Williamson.

Keira Walsh (Barcelona. Age: 26. Caps: 58. Goals: 0)

Became Bronze's team-mate at Barcelona when the Catalans paid a world-record £400,000 fee for the ex-City midfielder. 

Won Player of the Match in England's Euro 2022 final win over Germany at Wembley.

Georgia Stanway (Bayern Munich. Age: 24. Caps: 49. Goals: 15)

Joined Bayern from City before starring for the Lionesses at Euro 2022 as she formed an outstanding partnership with Walsh in midfield — and scored one of the goals of the tournament against Spain.

Ella Toone (Manchester United. Age: 23. Caps: 31. Goals: 16)

Another Lionesses hero in the Euro 2022 final against Germany, she scored the game's opening goal with a brilliant chipped finish.

Jordan Nobbs (Aston Villa. Age: 30. Caps: 71. Goals: 8)

Missed out on Euro 2022 due to a knee ligament injury.

Joined Villa in January after scoring 81 goals in 270 appearances for Arsenal during a spell in which she won 12 trophies.

Katie Zelem (Manchester United. Age: 27. Caps: 7. Goals: 0)

The United skipper was a driving force as Marc Skinner's side finished runners-up in the WSL and reached the FA Cup final during an impressive 2022-23 campaign.

Laura Coombes (Manchester City. Age: 32. Caps: 4. Goals: 0)

Won back a regular starting place at City during an impressive season and was rewarded with her first England call-up in seven years when Wiegman included her in the squad for this year's Arnold Clark Cup.


Rachel Daly (Aston Villa. Age: 31. Caps: 68. Goals: 13)

Excelled for the Lionesses as a left-back during Euro 2022. But after joining Villa from Houston Dash last summer, she equalled Vivianne Miedema's record for most goals in a WSL season (22).

Lauren Hemp (Manchester City. Age: 22. Caps: 37. Goals: 10)

Hemp, who has just completed her fifth season at City, gives the Lionesses a cutting edge down the left.

She started all six of England's games at Euro 2022 and played all 120 minutes in the final.

Climbed off the bench to score England's extra-time winner in the Euro 2022 final after overcoming a serious knee injury sustained in 2021.

Alessia Russo (Manchester United. Age: 24. Caps: 21. Goals: 11)

United's Player of the Year, who scored 10 WSL goals during a stellar campaign, is still being linked with a summer move to Arsenal after a January switch failed to materialise. 

Lauren James (Chelsea. Age: 21. Caps: 10. Goals: 1)

Younger sister of England defender Reece James, the Chelsea ace is widely regarded as one of the WSL's most exciting talents. 

The Blues paid a reported £200,000 to sign the striker from United in July 2021 when she was 19.

Beth England (Tottenham. Age: 28. Caps: 21. Goals: 11)

Forced her way back into the Lionesses' squad for the first time since last summer after scoring 12 goals in 12 WSL appearances.

Katie Robinson (Brighton. Age: 20. Caps: 4. Goals: 0)

Emerged as another star of the future with an impressive display in her first Lionesses start in February, setting up Daly for the opening goal in a 2-1 win against Italy in the Arnold Clark Cup.
