Russo, 21, has been capped at every age level for the Lionesses and steps up to the main squad having been named as a training player for the Lionesses’ SheBelieves Cup campaign.
University of South Carolina defender Anna Patten takes her place as a training player.
Bronze tweeted: “Disappointed not to be fit for camp. But a good opportunity for some new faces. Good luck ladies.
“Haven’t missed a single camp and been present at every single game for the past 5 years. Gonna have massive FOMO next week.”
