Millie Bright, die Kapitänin Englands, ist wegen einer Knieverletzung aus dem Kader für die letzten beiden Spiele der Uefa Women’s Nations League ausgeschieden.
In der Tat müssen die Lionesses beide Spiele gewinnen, um ihre Chancen auf die Nations League-Finals zu behalten.
On December 1st, England return to the Netherlands, before departing four days later to Scotland.
In place of Chelsea centre-back Bright has been called up Manchester United defender Millie Turner.
To keep Team GB’s hopes of Olympic qualification alive, England must also reach the Nations League finals.
They have to do so without Bright, who has been serving as England captain in the absence of the also-injured Leah Williamson and has led the Lionesses in their run to the 2023 World Cup final.
Bright, who was a doubt about injury before the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, was absent from Chelsea’s Women’s Champions League 4-1 victory over Paris FC on Thursday evening.
The 77-cap defender has now withdrawn and is taken over by Turner, who, despite having been called up by England, is uncapped at senior international level.
Following a shock 3-2 defeat away against Belgium in their previous match, England is now third in their Nations League group, behind the Dutch and Belgians in Group A1.
They are three points behind the Netherlands and one point behind Belgium, so they probably need to win both matches in order to finish top of the group and advance to the finals while hoping for other results.
