Women's Super League top scorer Rachel Williams says she is not thinking about playing for England again despite her fine start with new club Notts County.

Williams, 27, has scored four goals in five games to help Notts go third.

She has not played international football since March 2013 but, after an injury-hit season with Chelsea last time out, she is focusing on her club.

"I'd love to be playing in the future with England, but now it's all about County," she told BBC Radio Nottingham.

England begin their World Cup campaign in Canada in June this year, and Williams has impressed so far this season.

She scored one of the goals in the 4-2 win over Sunderland on Wednesday and is delighted with the progress she is making.

"It's all finally starting to come together," said Williams, who was WSL top scorer with Birmingham City in 2011.

"All the staff and the players have been brilliant and welcomed me in.

"I'm glad I can start scoring and giving them something back.

"I've been in and out of injuries for the last year. I had to leave Chelsea because I wanted to be closer to home, to get match fitness back and train more."
