Manchester City and West Ham United the latest clubs to lose players to qualifiers

Manchester City and West Ham United are the latest FA Women’s Super League clubs to lose players to Tokyo 2020 qualifying.

Canada are the latest club to announce their squad ahead of the upcoming international fixtures with two English-based players included.

Kenneth Heiner-Møller has called-up both City forward Janine Beckie and West Ham United winger Adriana Leon into the Canadian squad ahead of a trio of CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Tournament qualifiers. Canada face St Kitts and Nevis on 29 January before taking on Jamaica three days later. They will complete their triple header with a fixture against Mexico on 4 February. All three matches will be held at H-E-B Park in Edinburg, Texas.

Manchester City ace Beckie is likely to miss her side’s next three matches in all competitions. Nick Cushing’s side travel to the Leigh Sports Village to take on Manchester United on Saturday before back-to-back games against Arsenal in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup and FA Women’s Super League.

West Ham United winger Leon could miss just two matches. The East Londoners face a Women’s FA Cup fourth round tie against Arsenal at Rush Green on Sunday before travelling to Chelsea in the FA Women’s Super League a week later.

Both Beckie and Leon could meet upon their return to England with West Ham United set to host Manchester City on 9 February.

Manchester City’s Lee Geum-min and West Ham United’s Cho So-hyun were also called up by South Korea on Monday.
