The Women’s World Cup has come too soon for Beth Mead, who’s been left out of the England Squad.

The top scorer from last years success in the Euros ruptured a knee ligament in November.

Manager Serena Wiegman says she was never going to be ready.

Bethany England has been recalled after scoring 12 goals for Tottenham in as many games.

Wiegman also confirmed Chelsea’s Millie Bright will captain the side, in the absence of injured skipper Leah Williamson.
