Lionesses: Lauren James in England squad for November camp

Manchester United forward Lauren James has been included in an England squad for the first time, having been included by Phil Neville for the upcoming camp.

Manchester City midfielder Laura Coombs, whose last Lionesses appearance came in 2015, has been recalled to the 29-player squad, while uncapped duo Lotte Wubben-Moy and RInsola Babajide were included once more after impressing during September’s training camp.

England will not play a competitive match during the 10-day camp, with their planned fixture against Norway having been called off due to coronavirus travel restrictions.

Neville said: “This has been a challenging time for everyone, but it will be good to finish the year with an intensive training camp during which the squad will develop further and in which every player has the chance to prove themselves ahead of our upcoming major tournaments.

“I’m delighted to give Lauren James her first senior call-up. She is an exciting young player that we want to help develop further. She joins the squad alongside many other young players who we’ve introduced over the last few months.

“Laura Coombs is a player I have watched a lot this season and I have been very impressed with her progression in the game. She has performed consistently at a high level which merits her call-up to the squad.
