England World Cup squad announcement: Five key decisions Sarina Wiegman must make
This time last year, Sarina Wiegmans plans were in place ahead of the Euros. The Lionesses manager had settled upon a core of players during her first season in charge and her squad announcement for the tournament featured few surprises. Once the Euros began, Wiegman was able to name the same starting line-up for all six matches, as England won their first major international tournament in 56 years at Wembley.
How the Lionesses could do with the same stability ahead of the World Cup. A year later, Wiegman will take England into a second major international tournament as one of the favourites, but with injuries and fitness concerns disrupting their preparations and forcing a rethink in some key areas of the team.
Now the domestic club season is over, Wiegman will name her 23-player squad for the World Cup on Wednesday 31 May, with Englands opening game of the tournament against Haiti in Brisbane less than eight weeks away.
Here are some of the biggest questions Wiegman has to answer as the England manager names her squad for Australia and New Zealand.
