Steph Houghton and Ellen White among Lionesses quartet withdrawn for friendly with Czech Republic

England captain Steph Houghton is one of four players that have withdrawn from the Lionesses squad for their friendly against Czech Republic on Tuesday.

Houghton will be rested alongside Ellen White, who scored England's only goal on return from a knee injury in their agonising 2-1 loss to Germany at Wembley on Saturday.

Also out of the Lionesses final game of 2019 are striker Jodie Taylor and defender Alex Greenwood, both of whom are injured.

Phil Neville's team head to Ceske Budejovice in the hope of finding some form having lost five of their last seven games in all competitions.

The World Cup semi-finalists will kick off at 7:15pm GMT and you can follow live updates of all the action right here on the NewsChain website.

England squad:

Millie Bright, Lucy Bronze, Rachel Daly, Mary Earps, Beth England, Lauren Hemp, Abbie McManus, Beth Mead, Jordan Nobbs, Nikita Parris, Ellie Roebuck, Jill Scott, Lucy Staniforth, Demi Stokes, Carly Telford, Keira Walsh, Leah Williamson.
