Arsenal Women’s Russo & Wubben-Moy start for Lionesses v Italy, but Mead’s on the bench

Arsenal Women’s Beth Mead, Alessia Russo & Lotte Wubben-Moy are currently on international duty with the Lionesses, playing friendlies in Spain. Arsenal’s Leah Williamson withdrew from the Lionesses squad due to a slight injury. This evening’s Lioness captain will be Keira Walsh.

Sarina Wiegman’s starting XI is detailed below, but the fact that Beth Mead is on the bench is a bit of a shocker!

Arsenal’s Mead & Russo both started against Austria, while Wubben-Moy came on at half-time. The Lionesses won the game 7-2, with Mead scoring 2 goals & Russo scoring 2 goals and an assist. Russo & Wubben-Moy both start today but Mead may be subbed on through the game.

Fans in the UK can watch live on ITV4.

  1. I get very sad when a player like Beth is kept on the bench, to my mind she s the best player England have, by far …. if she had been called into the England team before her return i think we would have been in the Olympics, ppl were saying we didn t need her to beat Belgium, what an error that was ! anyway one good thing is that she hopefully will be well rested for our home game against Spurs on Sunday
