The England women’s home match against Norway that was due to be played on December 1 in Sheffield has been canceled due to the covid-19 travel regulations put in place by the government.
The Lionesses haven’t played a match since March, as their other international fixture against Germany at the ending of October was called off after a member of the Lionesses’ backroom staff recorded a positive Covid-19 test.
The Norwegian Football Federation on Friday, November 13, announced its players would be unable to travel to England.
England head coach Phil Neville reacting to the development, said: “While I am disappointed for our fans and players, I fully respect Norway’s decision not to travel.
“These are still challenging times where health and safety for all is the most important thing to consider.
“We will still look to get the squad together for the final time this year, and continue the work we have been doing in integrating younger players and building for the future.”
