England women's captain Faye White will miss this summer's Olympics after announcing she is pregnant with her first child.

The 34-year-old Arsenal defender, who has 90 caps, admits her international career is now almost certainly over.

"I'm pregnant and I'm going to be a mum for the first time in October," White said on www.thefa.com. "I have spoken to (England coach) Hope (Powell) and this will more or less signal the end."
