Katie Zelem and Lucy Bronze out of Lionesses squad as Izzy Christiansen joins up

Wednesday 16 Sep 2020
Izzy Christiansen has joined up with the Lionesses squad for their training camp at St. George's Park

Manchester United’s Katie Zelem has withdrawn from England’s September training camp having tested positive for COVID-19 and she will now self-isolate in accordance with protocol. There are no plans to call up a replacement for Zelem at this time. 

Lucy Bronze has also withdrawn from the camp as a precaution, to manage a slight knock picked up in Sunday's Barclays FA WSL match against Brighton and has now returned to her new club Manchester City.

And Isobel Christiansen has been called up to Phil Neville’s 30-player squad. Christiansen was last capped for England in March 2019 as a member of the Lionesses’ SheBelieves Cup winning squad in the USA, before undergoing ankle surgery which sadly ruled her out of last summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.

Christiansen returned to the WSL in December 2019, signing an 18-month contract with Everton following a season with defending European Champions Olympique Lyonnais.
