Three changes to England squad
 Women's Football England International News - 28 Feb 2018
 
Rachel Daly, Abbie McManus and Georgia Stanway have been drafted into the England Women's squad for the SheBelieves Cup after Steph Houghton, Jordan Nobbs and Karen Carney had to withdraw.
 
Daly, who plies her trade for Houston Dash, will join up with the Lionesses when they arrive in the United States on Sunday, ahead of Thursday's tournament opener against France in Columbus, Ohio.
 
England will then have matches against Germany in Harrison, New Jersey and the hosts in Orlando, Florida on 4th and 7th March respectively.
 
Man City duo McManus and Stanway, who have never featured in a senior Lionesses squad, both reported in London on Saturday.
 
Head coach Phil Neville has seized the opportunity to give the promising pair a chance to impress on the senior international stage, alongside Daly.
 
Neville told TheFA.com: "When I named the squad I mentioned there were some exciting players pushing hard for inclusion.
 
"While we are sorry to lose three experienced names, this is a brilliant opportunity for Rachel, Abbie and Georgia.
 
"It also means I get to see at first hand some of those who will be pushing the more established players for a place in our World Cup plans."
 
Houghton has yet to fully recover from an ankle knock picked up for City against Chelsea earlier this month, while the London club's midfielder Carney will not travel as part of the ongoing management of an ankle problem.
 
With the resumption of World Cup qualifying looming in April, it was felt best to let Carney remain with her club rather than make the trip to the US.
 
Meanwhile, Nobbs will also stay behind with Arsenal along with club mate Leah Williamson with both requiring treatment for knee issues. Williamson had been due to travel in addition to the 23-player selection as part of her England development.
 
With Williamson pulling out, Neville has turned to Manchester City's Ellie Roebuck. The England U19s goalkeeper will get the opportunity to gain invaluable experience on her own development pathway as a non-playing squad member during the US trip.
