England manager Phil Neville says Olympic talk is banned at SheBelieves Cup

Lionesses boss Phil Neville has banned Olympic talk in the England camp ahead of the SheBelieves Cup.

Neville is also head coach for Team GB heading to Tokyo this summer.

The manager yesterday announced his England squad defending the title in the four-nation tournament held in the United States next month.

He said: "I have stopped all of my staff talking about the Olympics. I will also stop my players. This is an England camp, we've got another England camp in April and we are focusing on it being only an England camp.

"The work being done for the Olympics is being done outside of these camps. It can't impact on the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland players so it would be unfair for me to go to the SheBelieves and talk about the Olympics."

The SheBelieves Cup begins on March 5.
