Team News England vs Norway

England are suffering with a virus in the camp, with head coach Phil Neville revealing Millie Bright is a ‘major doubt’ to make the game. Steph Houghton is also struggling with an ankle injury sustained against Cameroon.

Neville said: “We’re concerned about her, she’s not someone that stays down.

“It was a late tackle and we’re going to have to do everything possible to get her fit for the quarter-final.

“She’s a big player for us, our captain.”

Norway have no fresh injury concerns having reached the quarter-final with a penalty shootout victory over much-fancied Australia.

What are they saying?
Neville on his reputation for tinkering:

“You guys have had an obsession with my rotation for the last 18 months.

“But we can bring in two people who know the system and it’s a seamless transition.

“We don’t want to get to the quarter-finals and throw in young kids who are untested, so there has been a plan behind [the rotation]. I’m totally relaxed.”
