Charlton Athletic midfielder Katie Chapman has been ruled out of England's Women's World Cup qualifier in Zwolle this Thursday, after sustaining a calf injury which ruled her out of the Addicks' 6-0 FA Women's Premier League victory against Fulham yesterday.
For the second qualifier in succession, Birmingham City's Laura Bassett has been called up into the squad as a replacement.
Both teams are so far unbeaten after their first two qualifiers, whilst original group favourites France struggled to two victories against Austria and Hungary, as well as losing 1-0 to Holland in their opening qualifier.
TheFA.com will be bringing you interviews with Holland Head Coach Vera Pauw and England Head Coach Hope Powell over the next 48 hours, both of whom starred for their country on the field, before taking up the managerial reins.
