England to play first friendly
 Women's Football News 17 Jan 2014
 
England kick off New Year with a friendly fixture against Norway this week. 
 
They will meet the Euro 2013 finalists on Friday 17 January 2014, 2pm (UK time) in La Manga, Spain.
 
Thirty players are in the new look squad, including Birmingham City's Isobel Christiansen in her first call-up to seniors. The Birmingham City 22-year-old has been promoted from the Under-23s replacing Sydney striker Jodie Taylor, who withdrew from the squad due to club commitments.
 
Christiansen has represented England at every level from the Under-17s and was a key part of the Under-19 squad that won the European Championship in Belarus in 2009.
 
The La Manga camp is Mark Sampson's first assignment as England's new Head Coach and he is joined by his assistant and Under-23s new Head Coach Marieanne Spacey who has brought her young players to the camp.
 
Sampson said: "We've got lots of new faces in the squad and that gives me a good opportunity to see where we are at and will help me make some decisions as we move forward.
 
"It is a training camp, it's important to emphasize that. The door is fully open for every player.
 
"All players and coaches want to play games. I'm really excited to play a game. It's a full international but we have to be realistic as to where we are as a group at that stage."
 
After La Manga, England will once again compete in the annual Cyprus Cup in March, having won the competition last year, beating Canada in the Final. England's first home international will be against Montenegro on Saturday 5th April in a FIFA World Cup qualifier. The game will be screened live on BBC at a venue to be announced shortly.
 
England squad: Karen Bardsley (Manchester City), Rachel Brown-Finnis (Everton), Siobhan Chamberlain (Arsenal), Alex Scott (Arsenal), Sophie Bradley (Notts County), Steph Houghton (Manchester City), Gemma Bonner (Liverpool), Lucy Bronze (Liverpool), Dunia Susi (Unattached), Jemma Rose (Bristol Academy), Rachel Daly (LA Strikers), Demi Stokes (University of South Florida), Corinne Yorston (Bristol Academy), Alex Greenwood (Everton), Gilly Flaherty (Chelsea), Anita Asante (LdB Malmo), Jill Scott (Manchester City), Laura Bassett (Chelsea), Fara Williams (Liverpool), Jade Moore (Birmingham City), Jordan Nobbs (Arsenal), Ellen White (Notts County), Karen Carney (Birmingham City), Eniola Aluko (Chelsea), Toni Duggan (Manchester City), Natasha Dowie (Liverpool), Gemma Davison (Liverpool), Lianne Sanderson (Boston Breakers), Danielle Carter (Arsenal), Isobel Christiansen (Birmingham City). 
 
Meanwhile the England Under-23 team are enjoying their first get-together of 2014 in La Manga, alongside the senior side.
 
Fourteen players have made the step up from the Under-19s, having helped England reached the UEFA Under-19 Championships Final in August. It is the first time the squad has met up with new Head Coach Marieanne Spacey. 
 
Under-23 squad: Lizzie Durack (Harvard University), Mary Earps (Birmingham City), Megan Walsh (Aston Villa), Jade Bailey (Arsenal), Hannah Blundell (Chelsea), Naomi Cole (Millwall Lionesses), Martha Harris (Liverpool), Aoife Mannion (Birmingham City), Jaz Matthews (Bristol Academy), Meaghan Sargeant (Notts County), Bianca Bragg (Arsenal), Millie Bright (Doncaster Rovers Belles), Laura Coombs (Chelsea), Felicity Gibbons (Watford), Sherry McCue (Aston Villa), Abbey-Leigh Stringer (Aston Villa), Danielle Turner (Everton), Freda Ayisi (Arsenal), Rebekah Bass (Sunderland), Beth England (Doncaster Rovers Belles), Rebecca Jane (Reading FC Women), Francesca Kirby (Reading FC Women), Melissa Lawley (Birmingham City), Kirsty Linnett (Birmingham City), Beth Mead (Sunderland), Nikita Parris (Everton), Jess Sigsworth (Doncaster Rovers Belles).
