Millie Bright has been recalled to the England squad for the Lionesses’ upcoming Euro 2025 qualifiers against France, Sweden and the Republic of Ireland.

Bright, who led her country to last year’s World Cup final, is named in the 24-player party for the first time since October, having missed most of the season with a knee injury.

The Chelsea defender is joined in Sarina Wiegman’s squad by team-mate Aggie Beever-Jones, who will hope to win her first cap after an impressive Women’s Super League campaign in which she has scored 11 goals in 15 games.

The reigning European champions, who are second in their qualifying group and two points behind leaders France, play back-to-back games against the French on May 31 and June 4. They will then host the Irish on July 12, before heading to Sweden four days later.

“After an intense season, we wanted to give the players clarity and help them to prepare in the best possible way, with the balance of performance and welfare as a priority,” Wiegman said.

“We have had good conversations with the clubs, and we are grateful for their co-operation and support in helping the players to be fresh, fit and ready for two international matches at the highest level.

“The group is finely balanced and we know that every game is going to be tight, and we’ll need to be at our best.”
