DREW SPENCE has been recalled to the England Women’s squad for the first time since accusing former manager Mark Sampson of making racist remarks.
The Chelsea midfielder has been selected for a 10-day training camp in La Manga this month by interim manager Mo Marley.
The Football Association “sincerely apologised” to both Spence and Chelsea teammate Eni Aluko in October after evidence emerged about Sampson’s remarks, which he denied.
But that was only after repeatedly refusing to treat the accusations against Sampson seriously and being repeatedly shown up in the press.
FA chairman Greg Clarke admitted the organisation had breached its duty of care to the players.
Sampson was sacked in September for what the FA deemed “inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour” in a previous role — a report on which the FA had had for years before dismissing him.
Gilly Flaherty, Rachel Daly and Ellen White also return for England’s Spanish training camp ahead of the SheBelieves Cup in the United States in March.
England resume their 2019 World Cup qualifying campaign with a home game against Wales at Southampton on April 6.
