England’s backup goalkeeper Hannah Hampton has left the team camp after testing positive for COVID-19, the Women’s European Championship hosts said on Tuesday.
Hampton, who made her senior England debut earlier this year, has not yet featured at the Euros, where the Lionesses qualified for the knockout stages as Group A winners.
