Star-Studded Squad Takes the Pitch for England in Women’s World Cup 2023. The eagerly anticipated England women’s World Cup 2023 squad was recently revealed by head coach Sarina Wiegman. The announcement, made six weeks prior to the global tournament in Australia and New Zealand, has sparked excitement and anticipation among fans worldwide.
England’s captain for the upcoming tournament, Chelsea defender Millie Bright, has been confirmed in the 23-player squad. Notably, Leah Williamson, who led England to victory in Euro 2022, will miss out due to injury. Other significant omissions from the team include the talented Fran Kirby and Beth Mead.
Talented Contingent in the Midfield and Forward Positions
Despite the loss of some notable names, the squad still boasts plenty of world-class talent. Players like Millie Bright, Lucy Bronze, Rachel Daly, Mary Earps, Alex Greenwood, Georgia Stanway, and Keira Walsh have all been retained from last year’s successful European Championship squad.
Up-and-coming stars Maya Le Tissier, Jess Park, and Emily Ramsey are the standby players for the team, poised to join the squad training in June should they be needed.
England’s Triumphant Journey Towards the World Cup
The Lionesses have been on a roll since their victory in Euro 2022, adding the Arnold Clark Cup and the inaugural Women’s Finalissima titles to their trophy cabinet. In the Finalissima against Brazil, England proved their mettle, clinching the trophy after a dramatic 4-2 win on penalties following a 1-1 draw in regular time.
With their first World Cup fixture against Haiti on July 22, England’s women are grouped with Haiti, Denmark, and China in the World Cup Group D.

Leadership and Management
Sarina Wiegman, who led England to European glory in 2022, continues to helm the team. With an impressive record of no defeats in her 26 matches as England manager, Wiegman’s leadership is a pivotal asset for the team heading into the World Cup.
England’s women are undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming Women’s World Cup 2023. Despite significant player absences, the team is well-positioned to build on their recent successes and aims to lift the World Cup trophy this summer.
