Beth Mead and Lucy Bronze pull out of England squad for Norway friendly

Arsenal forward Beth Mead has withdrawn from the England squad due to family circumstances.

Mead, 27, picked up her 50th cap in Friday's 4-0 friendly win over Japan, but has now returned home and will miss Tuesday's game against Norway.

Defender Lucy Bronze has also left the Lionesses squad as a precaution because of a minor injury.

The 31-year-old missed the Japan game and will now return to her club Barcelona.
