Manchester City's Jill Scott has withdrawn from the Lionesses squad ahead of Tuesday’s game against Portugal in Lisbon.

Scott, who played the full game as England were beaten by Brazil in Middlesbrough on Saturday, has picked up a slight ankle strain and returned to her club as a precaution. 

Having trained with the Lionesses throughout the camp, Manchester City's Lauren Hemp and Everton's Chloe Kelly will now be named in Phil Neville’s squad. 

England have arrived in Portugal ahead of Tuesday’s meeting at the Bonfim Stadium, which will be broadcast live on BBC Four.
