Sampson names expanded England squad
 Women's Football England International News - 4 Jan 2017
England head coach Mark Sampson has named an expanded 28-player squad for his side's two upcoming internationals in Spain.
The Lionesses will travel to Murcia later this month where they will face Norway at La Manga Club (Sunday 22nd January) and Sweden at the Pinatar Arena (Tuesday 24th January).
Notts County striker Rachel Williams returns to the squad for the first time since April 2013. She last played for England in the successful 2013 Cyprus Cup campaign. Elsewhere, Williams's Lady Pies team mates Ellen White and Carly Telford are back following injury while Chelsea duo Millie Bright and Claire Rafferty are also recalled to the squad.
The matches are the first England will play in 2017 as they prepare for this summer's Euros which take place in Netherlands.
Sampson said: "This camp gives us the chance to kick-off a massively exciting year for us on the right foot.
"Our aim this year is to hit the highest levels we ever have and ultimately to win the Euros, and this camp will give us a strong platform to build our preparation for the summer.
"As we are in pre-season we may be a little off the pace football-wise with no matches or on-pitch training ahead of this camp. However, the players have been aware of these matches for some time so I expect them to be physically and psychologically ready to compete with two excellent teams in Norway and Sweden.
"We have chosen to name an extended squad as we are aware that the players may not be ready for two high-intensity matches in a short space of time at this point of their periodised plan. It also gives us the opportunity to assess more players.
"We have a lot of work to do to be the team we want to become at the Euros and that hard work will continue in La Manga.
"Rachel Williams comes into the group for the first time in over a year and I am pleased for her. She brings an incredible work ethic and physicality to our front line, as well as a huge aerial threat."
