A 21 player squad has been announced for the Lionesses' upcoming training camp.
Thursday, 3 June 2021
Interim head coach Hege Riise has named a 21 strong squad for the six-day camp at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre commencing on Sunday 6th June.
The squad consists solely of players chosen to represent Team GB in the upcoming Olympics, with the exception of Chelsea’s Carly Telford and Birmingham City’s Hannah Hampton, meaning the total number of goalkeepers onboard is five.
Riise has been named as the coach that will lead Team GB through their Olympic campaign and so it stands to reason that she has taken the decision to use this time to further prepare this set of players for the conditions of the summer tournament.
On her selection, Riise commented, “while this is purely an England camp, it felt sensible to really focus in now on preparations for the Olympics with the English players who have been selected for Team GB"
