Laura did not play for England between 2015 and 2023 but was called up for the Arnold Clark Cup in early 2023.

Coombs will represent her country once again in 2023 as she has been named as part of the FIFA Women’s World Cup squad.

Mary Earps, Lucy Bronze, Ella Toone and Rachel Daly will also play in the tournament in Australia and New Zealand.
