Lionesses skipper Leah Williamson says she can't enjoy Qatar men's World Cup

Williamson, 25, is the only living English footballer to lift a major tournament trophy after leading the Lionesses to Euro 2022 glory last summer. But although she wished her men's counterparts well as they aim to 'bring football home' for the second time this year, the Arsenal defender believes issues surrounding host nation Qatar have completely overshadowed the football on the field.

Arsenal's Williamson is currently injured but is set to lead England to the women's tournament in Australia and New Zealand next summer. And the Lionesses captain told the Mirror that the issues surrounding Qatar completely ruin any potential enjoyment that she normally gets from watching international tournaments.
