Captain of the Lionesses, Leah Williamson, gutted after defeat to the Matildas by Michelle
Leah Williamson, the captain of Arsenal Women’s team, led the England Women’s squad, known as the Lionesses, to their first defeat in 30 games last night. The streak of victories included winning Euro 2022 and, more recently, the Finalissima Cup by defeating Brazil a few days ago.
Australia’s Matildas handed a 2-0 defeat to the Lionesses, ending their 30-game winning streak. Chelsea’s Sam Kerr scored the first goal, which, according to the speaker’s opinion, should have been ruled offside, even without VAR. Arsenal’s Leah Williamson, who captained the team, expressed her disappointment after the game, feeling accountable for Kerr’s goal.
"We want to be pushed to our limit."

This loss can serve as a valuable learning experience for the Lionesses, and it is likely they will emerge stronger from it. No team is invincible, and setbacks can be humbling but also offer opportunities for growth. With the international break now over, the Lionesses will shift their focus to the upcoming FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand in July and August of this year.
