World News – GB – Alessia Russo leaves England women’s squad to face Germany with injury



Manchester United striker Alessia Russo has been forced to withdraw from the England women’s team to face Germany due to a thigh injury

Phil Neville’s side face Germany at Brita Arena in Wiesbaden on October 27 for their first game since their disappointing SheBelieves Cup tournament in the United States in March, which defeated them to the United States and Spain, but beat Japan

Russo will be replaced in the 28-man squad by his club-mate Katie Zelem who, along with Millie Turner, Esme Morgan, Niamh Charles and Ella Toone, received his second senior call after impressing at camp last months, with eight uncapped players in total named to the squad

Lucy Bronze and Nikita Parris are also included after missing the last international meeting due to travel restrictions for injuries and coronavirus, respectively

The England players have gathered in their St George’s Park, where they will play an in-house training match on Friday before the team travel to Germany

They will then face Norway, winner of the 1995 Women’s World Cup, at Bramall Lane on December 1

Jill Scott will win her 150th cap in the game against Germany or the friendly against Norway, which rounds out England’s matches for 2020, head coach Neville has confirmed

England’s last encounter with Germany was a 2-1 defeat last November, with Klara Buhl scoring the winner in the last minute for the visitors to a record crowd of nearly 80,000 at Wembley

Speaking on his squad’s first announcement, Neville said: « It’s exciting to face top-level opposition again after such a long layoff since the SheBelieves Cup earlier this year

« Germany is currently ranked second in the world So there is no doubt that it will be a difficult test for us, but essential, as we are measuring our progress against one of the best teams in the world.

« This will give us a clear idea of ​​our level in terms of depth and development of our squad as we prepare for UEFA EURO home in 2022 We want to compete for the top honors in world football and that means challenging ourselves against the strongest opposition

FA women’s football official admits it will be a ‘failure’ if her new ‘Inspiring Positive Change’ initiative does not increase diversity and representation

« I was impressed with the performances of a number of young players who joined our senior squad last month and look forward to seeing their further integration and development during this camp

« It is an exciting time for England players of all ages and experience to claim a place in the squad as we prepare for the major tournaments to come »
