England Captain Leah Williamson is also a vocal supporter of the LGBTQ+ community, and is hoping to wear the OneLove armband at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia & New Zealand this summer, as all teams did at the EURO 2022 tournament, with Leah telling the BBC:

The statement that was made at the Euros last summer, with every team participating, was incredible. Every picture we have with the trophy, there’s a rainbow armband in there.

It’s a great stage – and time – to promote those values that we believe in so much so I hope it’s the same (for the World Cup).
