Gabby George has been recalled to England after captain Leah Williamson, Alex Greenwood and Lotte Uben-Moy were dropped from Friday’s World Cup qualifier in northern Macedonia.
Permanent captain nominee Williamson has traveled to Skopje this week but will not take part in Friday’s qualifiers. The 25-year-old is now under concussion protocol due to a lack of training as a precaution after being assessed after an Arsenal match earlier this week.
Greenwood and Uben-Moy did not make the trip, Greenwood returned to Manchester City for rehabilitation for a knee problem when Uben-Moy returned to Arsenal to handle a thigh complaint.
Everton defender George has received his first lion call since the 2019 World Cup qualifiers, leaving the WU23 squad – who were in Spain for a double header against the Netherlands this week – to answer a senior call.
With the match starting at 6pm on Friday, England want to continue their unbeaten start in Group D against Northern Macedonia.
The Lions will close the international window against Northern Ireland at Windsor Park on Tuesday 12 April, with a kick-off at 7.55pm. Sky Sports will provide a dedicated live blog and analysis of both matches.
