White withdrawn from England squad due to positive COVID-19 test

Ellen White has been withdrawn from the England squad after testing positive for COVID-19.

The City striker has returned home and will be monitored regularly with a view to returning to camp as soon as possible.

A replacement will not be called up, leaving Sarina Wiegman with a 22-player squad for the fixture against the Netherlands at Elland Road on Friday 24 June.

The Lionesses face the reigning Euros Champions in a friendly in preparation for this summer's eagerly-awaited tournament on home soil.

White is three goals shy of Wayne Rooney's England goalscoring record, having become the top-scoring female for her country last November.

Everyone at the Club would like to wish Ellen a speedy recovery.
