Kelly set to return for England against Italy
1 min read

Chloe Kelly is set to return for England's friendly against Italy on Tuesday following an assessment on a minor injury.

Manchester City winger Kelly missed Friday's 7-2 win over Austria but returned to training on Sunday.

England are in Spain for a warm-weather training camp alongside the under-23s.

Sarina Wiegman said of Kelly: "She is good. She was flying in training so hopefully that's what she will do today and she will be ready for tomorrow."

The Lionesses will be without Chelsea attacking midfielder Fran Kirby who withdrew from the squad because of a "minor knee injury" suffered in the warm-up against Austria.

"She's well but she went home, went back to Chelsea," said manager Wiegman.

"She has some irritation on her knee. It's a minor injury but we didn't want to take any risks so she's being assessed at club and we don't expect it to be a bad injury."

Kirby has started just seven games for Chelsea this season after missing most of last year with a knee injury, but Wiegman is not concerned by a lack of game time.
