Ellen White to miss England vs Netherlands after positive Covid-19 test

Ellen White will miss England’s penultimate pre-Euro 2022 friendly against the Netherlands on Friday evening after testing positive for Covid-19.

The Manchester City forward has travelled home and will be monitored regularly, with a view to returning to the camp as soon as possible.

A replacement has not been called up in White’s absence, meaning the Lionesses will face the Netherlands with a squad of 22 at Elland Road on Friday 24 June.

England then travel to Zurich to face Switzerland in their final pre-Euro 2022 friendly on Thursday 30 June, before kicking off the tournament against Austria at Old Trafford on 6 July.

White was top scorer for England at the 2019 World Cup and for Team GB at the Tokyo Olympics last summer, and has been the Lionesses’ first choice striker under both Phil Neville and Sarina Wiegman.
