England name World Cup squad
 Women's Football News 12 May 2015
England name World Cup squad   - 12 May 2015 - Women's Football NewsMark Sampson has named his England squad for next month's FIFA Women's World Cup. 
The Head Coach has kept faith with the majority of the players who helped the Lionesses make it to Canada 2015 with a 100% record. Of the 23-player squad, only Chelsea duo Claire Rafferty and Katie Chapman did not feature in qualifying.
Eight players will be taking part in their first senior World Cup - Lucy Bronze, Alex Greenwood, Jade Moore, Jordan Nobbs, Jo Potter, Toni Duggan, Fran Kirby and Jodie Taylor.
Meanwhile at the other end of the scale, Siobhan Chamberlain, Alex Scott, Casey Stoney, Jill Scott, Fara Williams, Eniola Aluko, Karen Carney and Katie Chapman are all preparing for their third appearance at a World Cup, all having featured in 2007 and again in 2011 (Steph Houghton was named in the 2007 squad but missed the Finals through injury).
Not so lucky are the players who narrowly missed out on the squad, which included the likes of Demi Stokes, Anita Asante, Gemma Bonner and Natasha Dowie, but a maximum of seven players can be named on standby.
Sampson said: "This is a hugely exciting time for all the staff and players.
"We're ranked sixth in the world, we are a good team and we've got some exceptional players. We've got a very compact, resolute unit and we've got a real togetherness in the group so we'll certainly be a difficult opponent for anyone in Canada.
"I think as a group of staff we're very clear about the direction we want to take the team in during the tournament and hopefully the players can pull together.
"With this group in particular we have a large number of players who have performed very well and contributed to get this team to where it is now.
"The ambition is to go to Canada and win the competition but we've got to treat every game like a final."
England have been drawn in Group F and open up against France in Moncton on Tuesday 9th June. They take on Mexico in the same city on Saturday 13th June before their last group match against Colombia in Montreal on Wednesday 17th June.
England captain Steph Houghton said: "A World Cup is the pinnacle of every player's career and we want to enjoy every moment.
"We worked so hard to get to the World Cup, now we just can't wait to get started. We know we've got a tough group but we are prepared to go there and give it our all.
"It will be an honour and a privilege to lead these girls in Canada."
Sampson's squad will take on the host nation in a friendly in Hamilton on Friday 29th May.
