England and Aston Villa goalkeeper Hannah Hampton has been dropped from the national team because of her behaviour and attitude at the team’s camps.

The 21-year-old has not been selected by Lionesses’ boss Sarina Wiegman since their Euros triumph in the summer and looks unlikely to be reinstated back into the team.

Prior to World Cup qualifiers in September, Wiegman claimed Hampton’s absence from the national squad was due to ‘some personal issues that she has to solve so for her at this moment it’s better for her to stay at her club’.

However, her situation at Villa seems to have spiraled out of control recently after she turned up to their game unannounced – despite being left out the squad ‘in the best interests of the team’. 

Hampton was available for the first time in four games having recovered from an injury but found herself omitted from the first-team squad at Kingsmeadow. 

However, she was seen watching the game from the Chelsea home end and posted a picture of the match on her Instagram story with the caption ‘let’s go team #utv’.

Hannah Hampton is the future of goalkeeping in the women’s game.

Currently there is no information available about her partner in social media. 

The Aston Villa goalkeeper has more Women’s Super League experiences than most seasoned veterans and she’s still only 21-years-old.

The very definition of ‘age is nothing but a number’. Greatness knows no bounds, and Hampton is here to make her mark on the world of women’s football regardless of being one of the youngest keepers in the Women’s Super League.

Born in Birmingham, Hampton notched up 50 appearances for the Blues and made her first senior appearance for the Midlands’ team at just 15.

Under the tutelage of Marc Skinner and Carla Ward, she’s gone from strength to strength between the sticks, and has even caught the attention of World Cup winning manager and Lionesses’ Head Coach Sarina Wiegman. With the Euros around the corner – followed by a World Cup in 2023 – Hampton is already looking to don the coveted No.1 shirt.

Problems 

Aston Villa goalkeeper Hannah Hampton is playing at the top of the game, she’s just celebrated her 21st birthday, been called up for the latest England squad and has made 200 saves in the WSL.

Since making her WSL debut at just 16, she has not looked back. Also she has chosen to talk about her lack of depth perception to show to young children that anything is possible.

“I think that’s one of the reasons why I wanted to say it because loads of people were saying: ‘No, don’t do it’ because you don’t know how it’s going to affect with selections to clubs and to internationals but I feel like if you don’t say anything, people are going to be told by doctors [they can’t do things] – especially me.

Also “I was told by a doctor I would never be able to do any sport, I wouldn’t be able to do certain jobs I wouldn’t be a pilot, I wouldn’t be a surgeon but I always wanted to play sport so I kept going.”

Hampton learnt her craft in Spain with Villarreal and initially started life up front, training with the boys’ academy before moving back to England. Because a chance stand-in for an injured goalkeeper at Stoke’s centre of excellence saw her never look back. Now she’s on the verge of her full international debut.
