England name Cyprus Cup squad
 Women's Football News 21 Feb 2015
England head coach Mark Sampson has named his 23-player squad for the Cyprus Women's Cup. 
Chelsea's Claire Rafferty returns in the only change to the squad that faced USA on 13th February.
England will travel to Cyprus for the annual tournament on 26 February, and they kick-off their campaign against Finland (4 March) in Larnaca. The second and third games - against Australia (6 March) and the Netherlands (9 March) - both take place in Nicosia.
Sampson's side will play one final game - on Wednesday 11 March - against one of the other eight teams in Group A or C. The Lionesses reached the final of last year's tournament, but lost 2-0 to France.
Mark Sampson said: "The Cyprus Cup gives us a unique opportunity to simulate tournament football which is key to our World Cup preparation.
"As our domestic season has not yet started it will be a good opportunity for the players to develop their physical condition and gain their match sharpness.
"We will potentially face a variety of opponents from different continents at this tournament, which will be excellent preparation for the type of challenges we face at the World Cup this summer.
"By the end of the Cyprus Cup we will only have two months until we name our final World Cup squad, so this is a big opportunity for the players to stake a claim for a spot."
England will face France (9 June), Mexico (13 June) and Colombia (17 June) in Group F at the World Cup in Canada.
