Eni Aluko has not been recalled by England women's football team, despite the departure of former boss Mark Sampson.

Interim head coach Mo Marley has followed Sampson's lead by excluding Aluko and her Chelsea team-mate Drew Spence for a friendly against France on October 20.

Aluko, 30, accused Sampson, who was sacked for having a six-month relationship with a player while in charge at Bristol Academy, of racism, bullying and harassment. She has not played for England since April 2016.

Spence, 24, has also alleged Sampson asked her, as a mixed-race player, how many times she had been arrested at a tournament in China in 2015.

Sampson strongly denies all allegations and has twice been cleared by investigations.

England will be without goalkeeper Karen Bardsley and striker Ellen White in France owing to injury, while defender Laura Bassett will also miss the friendly in Valenciennes having recently relocated to play in Australia for Canberra United.

Marley, who will also be in charge for World Cup qualifiers in November against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kazakhstan, said: 'We know France are an excellent side and it will be a tough challenge for us. 

'It's a good opportunity for me to see the players in action against top opposition, especially considering our two important home World Cup qualifiers next month.'
