Exams put Aluko's place in doubt

Aluko is set to be called up by England
Eniola Aluko could miss out on playing for the England's women's team against Denmark in this summer's European Championship - because of her studies.

The 18-year-old striker, who scored Charlton's winner in the FA Women's Cup final against Everton on Sunday, is expected to make the England squad.

"The tournament starts on 5 June, so luckily most of my exams take place after it has finished," said Aluko.

"But I have an A-Level history exam the day of the Denmark game on 8 June."

She added: "I don't really know what are the logistics of that; I believe there are people trying to sort it out now.

"But I don't really want to worry about that. I just need to prepare myself mentally and physically, and hopefully I will do well in my exams and in the tournament."
