Chelsea’s Beth England and Niamh Charles have withdrawn from the England squad after the both testing positive for Covid-19.

England take on North Macedonia in Skopje on Friday 8 April, before heading to Windsor Park to face Northern Ireland on Tuesday 12 April.

England boss Sarina Wiegman has opted to not call up replacements for the pair ahead of the Lionesses’ World Cup qualifier against North Macedonia.

Both players were asymptomatic following the required pre-camp testing, and have not come into contact with teammates at St George’s Park.
