Captain Williamson led England to the European Championship trophy last year, but missed out on friendly games against Norway and Japan in November through injury.

“I’m very happy [Williamson’s] back too,” said England manager Sarina Wiegman. “It’s good to have your captain back with the quality she brings.”

Williamson and England will go on to play Italy in Coventry on Sunday February 19 and round out the tournament at Ashton Gate in Bristol, taking on Belgium on February 22.
