Fara Williams winning race to be fit for the World Cup
Williams helped lead England to the 2009 European Championship final
England vice-captain Fara Williams says she hopes to be fit for this month's World Cup finals in Germany despite battling with a knee injury.
England's first game is against Mexico on Monday, 27 June.
"I feel like I'm on track and I've been positive since I did it," Williams told BBC Radio Merseyside.
"It's a six to eight week injury, but I think I'm on track. The focus has been the World Cup and there's no better focus than that to get yourself back."
Everton midfielder Williams picked up the injury during the Blues' 0-0 draw with Lincoln at the end of April.
She is currently at Bisham Abbey undergoing intensive treatment along with skipper Faye White as they both bid to be fit for the competition.
"As soon as I got the injury there was only one thing on my mind and that was to get myself fit for the World Cup," Williams continued. "That's kept me going and is keeping me positive.
"I've been diligent in what I've done and I've done everything that has been asked of me to give myself the best opportunity of being picked. The minute negativity comes in, it's not going to help the injury, so it's been good."
