Millie Bright, England captain, is concerned about more injuries due of the ‘crazy’ fixture calendar.

England captain Millie Bright has stated that until the international schedule is adjusted, “standards may slip” and players would sustain more injuries.

Some Lionesses got only six days off after reaching the Women’s World Cup final this summer.

This week, they faced Scotland and the Netherlands in the Nations League, just a month after losing to Spain.

“As players, it’s really difficult right now because nothing is changing.” “We just have to get started,” she replied.

The Women’s Super League kicks off the 2023-24 season on Sunday, with Aston Villa hosting Manchester United at Villa Park.

Bright describes England’s loss without VAR as “mind-boggling.”
“We have to do the best we can, prepare in the best way, perform at the highest levels, get as much rest as possible, where possible, and just be smart in decision making,” said Bright.

“I hope it’s a topic that is discussed and discussed with players so that we can express our opinions.”

“We recognize that not every club and federation is in the same position, so I believe everyone simply needs to be on the same page so that we can move forward in the best way possible for the game.”

“Ultimately, we want to give the fans a show, and we want to play at the highest level possible for as long as possible.”

“But I do worry that the standards may slip if we keep going the way we’re going and there’s bound to be more injuries along with that.”

Arsenal Women’s Super League powers have had five players suffer anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in the last year.

England internationals Leah Williamson and Beth Mead were among them, as was Netherlands forward Vivianne Miedema.
