Katie Zelem and Lucy Bronze have both withdrawn fromtheEngland squad for the Lionesses’ September training camp.

Man City star Bronze, meanwhile, has withdrawn due to an injury she picked up in her side'sWSL match against Brighton at the weekend. She has been replaced on the roster by Everton's IzzyChristiansen.

Christiansen was last capped for England in March 2019 and was forced to miss the World Cup in France last summer due to ankle surgery.

Bronze had only just re-joined Manchester City, returning after a trophy-laden spell at French side Lyon. The28-year-old played for City between 2014 and 2017, after which she left for France.

Zelem was one ofseven playershanded their first international call-ups for the September camp, along withdefensive trio Lotte Wubben-Moy, Millie Turner and Esme Morgan, midfielders Ella Toone andNiamh Charles, and forward Rinsola Babajide.

England have convened for the first time in seven monthsat their base in Burton to undergo an intensive seven-day training camp.

An 11-a-side training match will also be stagedbehind closed doors on Friday as England prepare for a return to competitive action next month againstGermanyin Wiesbaden.

The camp is seen as a kick-off for preparations for a cycle that will see theLionesses aim for glory at theUEFA Women’s European Championship in 2022 and the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand the following year.

“It's important that we offer as many opportunities as possible for some of the country’s best young talent to stake their claim for a place in the senior England squad for this exciting three-year period," head coach Phil Neville said last week.
