I don’t feel my England story is complete


Steph Houghton has admitted she does not feel as that her England story is over yet, after Leah Williamson was named as the Lionesses captain for Euro 2022.

Houghton has worn the England armband since 2014, captaining her side to three successive major tournament semi finals, but is yet to feature under new manager Sarina Wiegman due to an achilles injury.

The defender had surgery on her achilles in February, with Manchester City manager Gareth Taylor admitting it is unlikely that she will play for her club before the end of the season.

This has left Houghton a major doubt for Euro 2022, but when congratulating new skipper Williamson on taking the Lionesses armband, the 33-year-old added that she was still aiming to be fit for the tournament in England this summer.

“It has been the greatest honour and privilege to captain my country for the last eight years,” Houghton wrote on Twitter. “I have been fortunate to lead the team to three major competition semi-finals and a bronze medal at the 2015 World Cup. Whilst the targets were always to win tournaments, I will always have immense pride in how we played, competed and how much we achieved.
