Nikita Parris: England recall Lyon striker for friendlies against France and Canada |  Football News


Nikita Parris has been called up to the England squad for their upcoming internationals against France and Canada.

Parris was initially excluded from the squad due to a number of positive coronavirus cases at his club Lyon, but has since tested negative and has been allowed to join his teammates.

Interim Head Coach Hege Riise said: “This is the first opportunity I have to work with Nikita in person and I am delighted to have him at camp with us.

“It’s a good opportunity to watch her closely as I have been with all the other players who have joined the camp and to have her available for selection against two tough opponents.”

Parris’ call follows Tuesday’s announcement that Manchester City defender Esme Morgan had teamed up with the Lionesses side at St George’s Park ahead of the friendlies.
