Steph Houghton and Carly Telford withdraw from England squad with injuries

Monday 08 Apr 2019
England captain Steph Houghton won't be facing Spain in Swindon on Tuesday

Steph Houghton and Carly Telford have both withdrawn from the England squad.

Lionesses captain Houghton felt mild groin pain following the Lionesses’ meeting with Canada on Friday evening and the decision has been made to rest her in order to manage her load ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer.

And Chelsea goalkeeper Telford sustained a concussion in training and will now be unavailable for the rest of the camp.

This follows The FA’s concussion guidelines in managing her return to play.

It means the pair will sit out of Tuesday’s ‘Road to France Series’ game against Spain at Swindon Town and have both returned to their clubs. 

Tickets for that match are still on sale!
