The Lyon midfielder Izzy Christiansen has been left out of Phil Neville’s England 23-women squad for the World Cup after failing to recover fully from an ankle injury.

Neville’s squad was revealed one by one on Wednesday by various celebrities. Prince William started by announcing the captain Steph Houghton, and among those who followed were Emma Watson, Raheem Sterling, David Beckham and Katarina Johnson-Thompson.

Christiansen, who joined Lyon from Manchester City in the summer, sustained her injury during England’s 3-0 defeat of Japan at the SheBelieves Cup and required surgery.

Lyon tweeted a video on Monday of the 27-year-old taking part in individual training for first time since her operation but the midfielder has been deemed too big a risk for the finals.

Other notable absentees are the Orlando Pride forward Chioma Ubogagu and Manchester City’s 19-year-old goalkeeper Ellie Roebuck. They have dropped out of the 25-strong squad that took part in friendlies against Canada and Spain at the start of April.

Roebuck has shared goalkeeper duties with the experienced Karen Bardsley – who is in the squad – at City this season, with the former having played 16 games in all competitions and the latter 17, primarily in the cups.

The 34-year-old Bardsley – who saved two penalties in City’s Continental Cup final shootout victory against Arsenal – is joined on the goalkeeper list by Wolfsburg’s Mary Earps and Chelsea’s Carly Telford, neither of whom are regular starters for their clubs.

Two members of Arsenal’s title-winning team, the 22-year-old centre-back Leah Williamson and 23-year-old forward Beth Mead, who has three goals from five caps in 2019, are included.

Manchester City provide eight members of the squad – more than any other club – including the PFA young player of the year, Georgia Stanway, who scored in City’s 3-0 FA Cup final defeat of West Ham on Saturday.

Birmingham’s Lucy Staniforth, who scored England’s opener against Japan in the US, keeps her place and Reading’s Jade Moore, who returned to action in January having suffered a serious ankle injury at the start of November, is also included.

Neville said: “I want to congratulate all of the players in our squad. I must also thank those who just missed out for all of their efforts. We would not be in this position without them – they have played a big part in our World Cup journey and I know they will be our biggest supporters this summer.

“Picking a squad is never easy but I believe in this group and I know they will be ready to help us perform at our very best at the finals. We know what we are capable of achieving.”

England play Denmark, ranked 17th in the world, at Walsall’s Banks’s Stadium, on 25 May before a World Cup send-off at Brighton’s Amex Stadium against New Zealand, ranked 19th, on 1 June.

The Lionesses face Scotland in their Group D opener in Nice on 9 June.

England's 23-woman squad for the World Cup
Goalkeepers: Karen Bardsley (Manchester City), Mary Earps (Wolfsburg), Carly Telford (Chelsea)
Defenders: Millie Bright (Chelsea), Lucy Bronze (Lyon), Rachel Daly (Houston Dash), Alex Greenwood (Manchester United), Steph Houghton (Manchester City), Abbie McManus (Manchester City), Demi Stokes (Manchester City), Leah Williamson (Arsenal)
Midfielders: Karen Carney (Chelsea), Jade Moore (Reading), Jill Scott (Manchester City), Lucy Staniforth (Birmingham City), Georgia Stanway (Manchester City), Keira Walsh (Manchester City)
Forwards: Toni Duggan (Barcelona), Fran Kirby (Chelsea), Beth Mead (Arsenal), Nikita Parris (Manchester City), Jodie Taylor (Seattle Reign), Ellen White (Birmingham City)

Horrible cheating by Neville naming Sterling in the squad but I'm excited to see what Emma Watson can do in her new role of midfield enforcer.

Doubly impressive given JK Rowling defected to the USWNT during the SheBelieves Cup.

Sounds like there's been a bit of a balls up with ticketing. Families booking tickets, and having their seats nowhere near each other, that kind of thing.

David Baddiel and Frank Skinner’s football song Three Lions has been rewritten as a feminist anthem to cheer on England’s women team in next month’s World Cup.

Members of the team say they hope the reworked tune, Three Lionesses, will inspire the public to get behind the team at the tournament which takes place in France from 7 June to 7 July.

The original song, better known as Football’s Coming Home, has been chanted at England games since it was released for the men’s team campaign in 1996 European championship hosted in England.

It nostalgically celebrates England 1966 World cup win and rues near misses and underachievements in major tournaments since, enjoying a new lease of life during last summer’s World Cup in Russia when Gareth Southgate’s team reached the semi-finals.

The theme of the reworked tune swaps low expectations about the England men’s team with sexist attitudes about women’s football in general. The lines “That England’s going to throw it away, gonna blow it away” are replaced with “That we don’t have the skill in their eyes. Well we’re tired of the lies”.

And “All those ‘well done girls’” replaces “oh-so-nears” as the source of wearing down England supporters.

The new tune and accompanying video references past successes of the England team in the same way as the original song.

But the names, and footage involved, have been switched. Substitutions include Jade Moore for Bobby Moore; Nikita Parris for Gary Lineker; Steph Houghton for Bobby Charlton, and Jordan Nobbs for Nobby Stiles.

Nobbs, who has been ruled out of the tournament with a damaged knee, said: “I know the players love the Three Lionesses track and I hope it inspires the team to World Cup glory. This is an incredible time for women’s football as awareness and popularity continues to grow.” The song was commissioned by Lucozade Sport as part of its marketing activity around the tournament.

Is the opening ceremony on TV at all? Can't find it anywhere and BBC coverage only starts half an hour before kickoff. Fucking One Show.

Ah. Red button. Standard bloody def.

The second penalty in the Spain game was a horrific decision, and after VAR too. The defender cleared it and the Spanish player ran into her follow through. Ridiculous.

Very confused by how much they're going over the penalty in this game, I mean the Liverpool one last week had a little bit of a question mark but most people agreed with the decision but the Scottish handball looked fairly clear cut so to see how much they're harping on about it.

Eh, I think it was a harsh pen, her arm wasn't in a crazy unnatural position or anything. Thought we were wasteful and Scotland maybe deserved something out of that, too many misplaced passes in the final third - some of the one touch football was real nice, though. Good first half, not so good in the second.

The pen was harsh. I can see Scotland getting out of the group.

If the rule is that if the arm is outside of the natural body silhouette or however they talk about it, it was a clear cut penalty. Her arm was up and away from her body; it hit the arm.

Yep, penalty for me.

England a bit fortunate to win based on the second half but were far better in the first. Think the penalty knocked Scotland off their gameplan for the rest of that half.

Argentina have held Japan to a 0-0 draw. That's great for us!

      SQUADS
      The Guardian's complete guide to all 736 players at the 2018 World Cup
      The complete guide to all the stadiums
    • By ChrisSteeleAteMyHamster
      We've got a month until the World Cup! So exciting!

      Anyway for some reason the BBC suddenly posted news about Japan's squad because Shunsuke Nakamura (the ex-Celtic player) has been recalled.
      However the best news is that Kawaguchi is back in the squad as third choice goalie! He's a total legend. A chirpy little Japanese shot stopping legend:


      My local team is Nagoya Grampus and we've got two players in the squad but one is Tulio who hasn't had the best couple of years.


      Is Jesus (Kennedy) in the Australian squad? He's Nagoya's big lanky striker who looks useless for 89 minutes and then bundles in a header in the last minute pretty much every game.

      Anyway, Japan are annoying me because their style at ANY kind of football is to try to dribble the ball into the net (a bit like Arsenal but less successful) instead of one person just deciding to let rip from around the box. If they actually shot from 16-25 yards from time to time they'd actually be pretty decent.

      We have an England thread, but not a general one, so here it is.

      Norn Iron are 1-0 down against Russia with around 25mins to play.

      Wales vs. Belgium is on Sky Sports later, and Holland-Turkey can be watched on ESPN.

      Fully expecting a comfortable Belgium win this evening. Can't see Wales handling them.

      Scotland play Serbia, and Rep Ire vs. Kazakhstan is currently goal-less.
