  • +1

England Women head coach Mark Sampson  selected a 23-player squad for a week-long training camp [which has been reduced to 22 after Leah Galton (on her first call up) has had to withdraw through injury].

Notts County goalkeeper Carly Telford, Liverpool’s Alex Greenwood and Arsenal’s Jodie Taylor are all out through injury.

The Lionesses met at St George’s Park on Sunday [14 August], where they will stay for five days, before moving to Bisham Abbey on Thursday 18 August for two days.

The camp will form the start of England’s preparations for next summer’s UEFA Women’s Euros.

Sampson’s side secured qualification for the tournament in June after beating Serbia 7-0 in June.

England’s next home game is against Estonia on Thursday 15 September (7.05pm KO) at Meadow Lane, where they will look to cement their place at the top of Group 7. They will then travel to Leuven to play Belgium on Tuesday 20 September.

Tickets for the Estonia match are on sale now, priced £7.50 for adults and £3.50 for children. A family ticket is available, via phone booking only, priced £15 (two adults and two children) while group booking discounts apply.
