News Update


Beth Mead returns to the England squad following an ACL injury in the Women’s Nations League.

Mead, who won the Golden Boot in England’s Euro 2022 victory, tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in November 2022.

Sarina Wiegman’s 23-player roster for the Women’s Nations League matches next month includes her.

England will play the Netherlands at Wembley Stadium, followed by Scotland at Hampden Park.

“Of course that’s really nice,” manager Wiegman stated upon Mead’s return. She’s played minutes, is in a good situation, and is still developing. It was a lovely phone call, and she was overjoyed.

“We’ve been talking all the time. We had some before the September camp, as well as some in October, because she was already completely trained and got some minutes. I wanted to see a little more, and we’ve seen that now.

“Her health is excellent, so she can just go.” She has demonstrated that she is in a good place in games. She’s still improving, but she’s demonstrated enough for us to bring her in.”

Grace Clinton, 20, who is on loan at Tottenham from Manchester United, and Manchester City goalkeeper Khiara Keating, 19, who was included in the team for the first time in October, have been called up again.

Lucy Parker of Aston Villa is out with an ankle injury, while Manchester City forward Jess Park, Villa attacker Ebony Salmon, and seasoned midfielder Laura Coombs are all out.

England has been nominated on behalf of Team GB to qualify for the 2024 Olympics in Paris, but they must first win their Women’s Nations League group.

England is presently third in the group, three points behind leaders the Netherlands, whom they face on Friday, December 1.

Scotland, their opponents on Tuesday, 5 December, are currently bottom of the group with one point.
