Aggie Beever-Jones has received her first senior England call up and Millie Bright returns to the squad following a five-month injury absence for the Lionesses’ Euro 2025 qualifiers against France.

Sarina Wiegman has named a 24-player for the two fixtures plus four standby players. Manchester United defender Maya Le Tissier, Liverpool midfielder Missy Bo Kearns, Tottenham Hotspur forward Jess Naz and Southampton goalkeeper Kayla Rendell are the players on the standby list.

Beever-Jones, 20, has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign at Chelsea following last season’s loan spell at Everton, scoring 11 goals in 15 Women’s Super League appearances.

Bright, who captained England at last summer’s World Cup, withdrew from the Lionesses squad in November with a knee injury before returning to action with Chelsea in April.

England play France at St James’ Park on Friday May 31 before the reverse fixture in Saint-Etienne on June 4.
