The 32-year-old was withdrawn from England’s quarter-final against France with 15 minutes remaining, with what has now been confirmed as a fracture of her fibula.

“Bardsley was substituted in the second half of the Lionesses’ 1-0 quarter final win over France on Sunday [30 July], having suffered a fibula fracture,” read a statement on the FA’s website.
