After their sensational performance against Sweden, the way is now clear for the Lionesses to compete in the EURO Women’s 2022 final against Germany.
For the Lionesses, it will be their first time in a final since 2009, and their first ever major trophy if they become champions.
While much is known about the star players on the field, we take a look into the private life of presenter Fara Williams.
1 Who is Fara Williams?
The 38-year-old has had an illustrious 20-year career as a midfielder, during which he played for several clubs and the English national team.
After making her senior debut in 2001, Williams earned 172 caps for the England women’s team, making her the highest ranked player. In 2012, Fara played a key role on the GB team at the London Olympics.
London-born Fara attended Shene School in Richmond, London, and played for Chelsea Ladies under-14s, Charlton Athletic Ladies, Everton Ladies, Liverpool, Arsenal and Reading, among others. The former midfielder hung up her boots in April 2021 and is now enjoying a successful career as a sports reporter for the BBC.
Fara defeated the semifinals of the Women’s European Football Championship on Tuesday.
During her career, Fara has inspired legions of young girls across the country. Not only has she paved the way for women’s soccer, but she has clearly demonstrated the power of perseverance and determination.
After a difficult family life, Fara was homeless for six years while still playing for Chelsea, Charlton and England. The soccer pro had to flee from one hostel to another before her manager finally got wind of her precarious living conditions. To this day, Fara works tirelessly with homeless charities to raise awareness and support those in need.
Who is she married to?
In December 2015, Fara married former Everton teammate Amy Kane. However, their marriage was short-lived, and the couple divorced not long after. Since the breakup of her marriage, Fara has remained extremely secretive about the intimate details of her private life.
