The Lionesses rely on Siobhan Chamberlain's hairdressing skills before a game

Siobhan Chamberlain is England’s go-to hairdresser on matchday.

The Lionesses goalkeeper has a queue of team-mates waiting to get styled before the big kick-off.

“There are quite a few players who ask me to sort their hair our before every game,” she said.

“Fran Kirby and Alex Greenwood [below] are regulars. It’s usually just a plait or braids, sometimes a ponytail – anything that helps keep their hair out of their eyes during the game.

“Some of the girls wear hairbands for the same reason, but a lot of them come to me the morning of a game.”

Siobhan played in England’s recent 4-0 win over Bosnia and is one game away from earning a landmark 50th cap.
