News Update


Keira Walsh and Bethany England have been ruled out of the Lionesses Women’s Nations League due to injury.

Tottenham striker Bethany England is also out due to injury and is replaced by Manchester City’s Jess Park.

Walsh and England are the only players missing from the Lionesses’ World Cup-winning roster.

Lucy Staniforth and Maya Le Tissier have been recalled to Sarina Wiegman’s 24-player roster.

Both Aston Villa midfielder Staniforth and Manchester United defender Le Tissier were on standby in Australia before of the World Cup.

England, 29, will miss the start of the Women’s Super League season after undergoing hip surgery on September 6.

Walsh, 26, of Barcelona, suffered a knee problem during the World Cup, but Wiegman claims it has “nothing to do” with that complaint; instead, a new calf ailment means she will miss out this time.

“[Walsh] has a minor calf injury and is unable to report to camp.” “It’s not a big deal, but she’s not ready to play,” Wiegman explained.

Fran Kirby of Chelsea and Beth Mead of Arsenal both missed the World Cup due to long-term ailments, but Wiegman claimed this camp came too soon for them to rejoin the group.

“Beth [Mead] must take the next step in order to get games and consistency.” Fran [Kirby] is really close,” Wiegman noted.

“She [Kirby] has already played some pre-season friendlies and performed admirably.” Again, it’s a little early. “I’m really looking forward to seeing them play.”

The Lionesses play Scotland in Sunderland on Friday, September 22nd, before traveling to Utrecht to face the Netherlands on Tuesday, September 26th.

England will also face Belgium in their Nations League group, with the victor qualifying for the semi-finals in February.
