  • Millie Bright rejoins England squad for Euro 2025 qualifiers
  • Squad includes Aggie Beever-Jones; June in France, July in Sweden
  • Manager Sarina Wiegman emphasizes player welfare and preparation

Millie Bright has returned to Sarina Wiegman’s squad for England’s June and July Euro 2025 qualifying matches against Sweden, France, and the Republic of Ireland.

Both the June and July camps will use the 24-man England squad, which includes Aggie Beever-Jones, Bright’s Chelsea teammate. In June, England will travel to France for consecutive games. In July, prior to their journey to Sweden, they will face the Republic of Ireland in Norwich.

Southampton’s Championship-level goalkeeper Kayla Rendell is among the four players on standby. The others on that list are Missy Bo Kearns of Liverpool, Jess Naz of Tottenham, and Maya Le Tissier of Manchester United.

Wiegman stated that they achieved “clarity” by designating a squad for both periods; the contests took place during the Women’s Super League off-season.

With a focus on achieving a balance between performance and welfare, our objective was to provide the players with clarity and assist them in their preparations for the FIFA World Cup in an optimal manner following a demanding season,” the manager explained. We have engaged in fruitful dialogues with the clubs, and we are appreciative of their collaboration and assistance in ensuring that the players are fit, fresh, and prepared for two high-profile international matches.

With a roster of 28 players, we have a variety of options for each of the four matches, and it is also a chance for some fresh faces to make an impression and forge new relationships.

In addition to extending a warm welcome to Bright, who has made her debut for Chelsea in recent weeks following her return from injury, Wiegman has also bestowed a reward upon Beever-Jones. This season, the forward has amassed eleven goals in the league for Chelsea, which ranks him fourth among WSL-leading scorers and second only to Lauren James.

The Lionesses will entertain France in Newcastle on Friday, May 31. On Tuesday, June 4, they will reverse the match in Saint-Étienne. They will then have time off prior to the June 19–21 and 24-28 training sessions. The group will train in the Netherlands from July 1st to the 5th prior to their final Euro qualifying group stage matches—on Tuesday, July 16th, against Sweden and Ireland in Norwich, respectively—and from July 1st to Julyth, against Sweden in Gothenburg. During this camp, the team will engage in a behind-closed-doors training match against the Netherlands.
