Brent Hills has named his England Under-23 squad for an FA-hosted mini-tournament which welcomes USA, Sweden and Norway to these shores at the beginning of July.
Brent has named an experienced group of 17 players, seven of which have tasted the delights of the England senior team in the past (indeed, defenders Sophie Bradley and Claire Rafferty have been included in Hope Powell's squad of 22 for this Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Spain), underlining his intentions ahead of this round-robin competition, which is being staged in place of the hitherto annual Nordic Cup.
The Under-23s' last outing, in February, took them to La Manga for another four-team tournament where a Dannii Bird goal gave England a 1-0 victory over Norway before illness and injury cost Hills' charges dear as they lost 1-0 to USA in the final game.
England kick off their games against the USA on Wednesday 7 July (2pm) before playing Sweden two days later (2pm) and finishing up against Norway on Monday 12 July (12pm). All matches will be played at Cryfield Sports Pitches at the University of Warwick.
Spectators are welcome at any of the matches in this tournament. Tickets are not necessary, simply turn up and enjoy the action!
