An England statement revealed the midfielder will not be available for the final Group D fixture against China in Adelaide on Tuesday but will continue to be assessed by the side's medical staff.

The statement read: "Following a scan late on Saturday afternoon, we can confirm Keira Walsh has not suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

"Walsh has been ruled out of Tuesday's final Group D match against China in Adelaide and will remain at England's Terrigal base to continue her recovery.

"Her knee injury will continue to be assessed by England medical staff and no further update will be provided at this stage."
