Injuries have meant two changes to Phil Neville’s Lionesses squad for the friendlies with Belgium and Norway.

New Lyon signing Alex Greenwood and Fran Kirby of Chelsea have withdrawn from the camp for the games this Thursday and next Tuesday.

Called up in their place are the hugely experienced Fara Williams and Hannah Blundell who made her senior England debut just last year.

Both matches are being televised live on the BBC.
