Hemp withdraws from England squad through injury

Lauren Hemp has withdrawn from the latest England squad due to injury.

The winger will return to City to receive treatment on a thigh complaint sustained in yesterday’s Barclays Women’s Super League fixture against Reading.

Hemp was at her brilliant best in Berkshire, supplying the cross which forced two own goals out of the hosts amid a 3-0 victory.

The 22-year-old was selected alongside six of her City team-mates in Sarina Wiegman's latest Lionesses squad, ahead of international friendlies in Spain against Japan and Norway.


She has been replaced by Everton defender Gabby George, with Arsenal's Jordan Nobbs also withdrawing due to injury.

Ellie Roebuck, Sandy MacIver, Esme Morgan, Alex Greenwood, Chloe Kelly and Jess Park (on loan at Everton) remain part of that England side.

A City-focused match report on each encounter will be available to view on mancity.com and the official Man City app once the action has concluded.

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