Manchester United forward Lauren James has received her first senior international call-up for England’s upcoming training camp.

James, 19, has impressed Lionesses boss Phil Neville with her Women’s Super League performances for United.

Manchester City midfielder Laura Coombs returns to the squad having made her last Lionesses appearance in 2015.

Liverpool’s Rinsola Babajide and Arsenal’s Lotte Wubben-Moy receive their second senior call-ups.

England will start their latest 10-day training camp at St George’s Park on 22 November.

Their friendly against Norway, which had been due to take place on 1 December in Sheffield, was cancelled because their opponents were unable to travel amid Covid-19 restrictions.

Instead, the squad will be split in half on the camp and will play two in-house training matches.

“This has been a challenging time for everyone, but it will be good to finish the year with an intensive training camp during which the squad will develop further and in which every player has the chance to prove themselves,” said Neville.

“I’m delighted to give Lauren James her first senior call-up. She is an exciting young player that we want to help develop further. She joins the squad alongside many other young players who we’ve introduced over the last few months.

“Laura Coombs is a player I have watched a lot this season and I have been very impressed with her progression in the game.

“This camp will give us another excellent opportunity to integrate young, promising players with our experienced internationals and align everyone on the team’s long-term vision.”
