Football News: England Women’s Euro 2024 Qualifiers Update

In a significant blow to England’s preparations for their upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers, key players Lauren James, Lotte Wubben-Moy, and Kayla Rendell have withdrawn from the squad due to injuries.

The trio will miss the Lionesses’ final group stage matches against the Republic of Ireland on 12 July and Sweden on 16 July, as they continue to recover from their respective ailments. Chelsea striker James, 22, has been dealing with a foot injury, while Arsenal defender Wubben-Moy and Southampton goalkeeper Rendell have also been ruled out.

Despite these setbacks, Sarina Wiegman’s side will still travel to the Netherlands on Monday for a preparation camp, with Mary Earps and Niamh Charles joining the team to continue their rehabilitation. Additionally, goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse has received her first call-up to the senior England team and will link up with the squad at St George’s Park next Monday.

Midfielder Georgia Stanway is also named in the squad but will join the team later, as her club Bayern Munich have already started their pre-season.

England currently sit third in their Euro 2024 qualifying group, outside the automatic top two spots on goal difference. France lead the standings, with Sweden in second and the Republic of Ireland in fourth place. If the Lionesses finish third or fourth in the table, they will be entered into the play-offs to reach Euro 2025.
