A footballer who boasts more followers than her Aston Villa boyfriend will miss out on featuring in this summer’s UEFA Women’s Euro 2022.
Alisha Lehmann, who has some seven million followers on Instagram, has said that she will not be able to feature in the upcoming tournament. Switzerland head coach Nils Nielsen had chosen her to be a member of the side. But she has said via Villa’s official site: “It’s a personal decision. I don’t feel mentally ready for a European tournament.”
The 23-year-old, who has scored six goals in 33 appearances for the Swiss, had a cracking season for the Villians and even won the Supporters' Player of the Season.

The Brazil international had been linked with Roma, with Jose Mourinho thought to be a long-term admirer.
But now it appears that it’s Milan who are in the driving seat, according to the Daily Mail.
