England name final squad to face Sweden
 Women's Football News 23 Jul 2014
 
Mark Sampson has announced his final 23-player England squad for next month's international against Sweden. 
 
England will host the Scandinavians at Hartlepool United's Victoria Park stadium on Sunday 3 August (2.00pm ko).
 
If Fara Williams plays, she will become England's most capped player of all time on 130 caps, ahead of Rachel Yankey. She equalled Yankey's record in a World Cup qualifier against Ukraine in June.
 
Meanwhile, Washington Spirit's Jodie Taylor gets her first full call up to the senior squad. The squad includes five players who hail from the North East - captain Steph Houghton, Hartlepool's Jordan Nobbs, Lucy Bronze, Demi Stokes and Jill Scott. Kelly Smith and Casey Stoney have been rested for this match and Sophie Bradley is out through injury.
 
The match takes place ahead of England's key World Cup qualifier against Wales on 21st August at Cardiff City Stadium. The Lionesses need just a point to qualify for the finals which take place in Canada next summer.
 
Sampson said: "It will be great to get the group together again for a really exciting challenge against a good Swedish team.
 
"Fara is a special player as well as a fantastic ambassador for the game. To overtake the record will be an incredible achievement for her and I'm sure one that she will build on.
 
"I spoke with Kelly and Casey, we decided to leave them out of this squad to allow them some extra recovery time. I am very hopeful they will be back fresh and fully fit for the Wales match.
 
"We are also looking forward to inviting Jodie into the group who has been playing very well and deserves her opportunity."
 
Tickets for the match are on sale now priced £5 for adults and £2.50 for children. A family ticket (two adults and two children) is available at £10 and group booking discounts apply. Tickets can be purchased by calling 01429 272 584 (option 2), via TheFA.com's ticketing page or at the Hartlepool United ticket office.
