Norway vs England: What has been said?

England captain Steph Houghton is a major doubt for the clash.

Houghton was on the receiving end of a horror challenge towards the end of the win over Cameroon and is struggling with an ankle issue as a result.

Neville, who also said fellow defender Millie Bright is also a doubt through illness, is hopeful Houghton will train on the eve of the game before making a final decision.

“Both are major doubts,” he said of Houghton and Bright.

“Steph because of the tackle, we are hoping she takes part in some training today, that is the key for Steph.

“Millie has got a virus that is going a little bit through the camp so she is probably more of a doubt than Steph. We are going to give them right to the last minute to be fit.”
