England and Tottenham Hotspur forward Bethany England will miss the start of the season after having hip surgery.
The 29-year-old played for the Lionesses at the Women's World Cup but confirmed she will miss their Nations League games, which start on 22 September.
"Unfortunately on Monday I required hip surgery to fix an issue I've had for a few months," she wrote on social media.
"Sadly this means I'll be sidelined for a while."
She added: "Priority right now is my recovery and working hard to get back on the pitch as soon as possible."
