England name SheBelieves Cup squad
 Women's Football England International News - 23 Feb 2019
Phil Neville has named his squad for the 2019 SheBelieves Cup in the United States later this month.
The 23-player squad will meet up this weekend in London before travelling to the US for the prestigious four-team tournament involving the host nation, Brazil and Japan.
First up, England face Brazil in Philadelphia on Wednesday 27th February, before taking on the US in Nashville three days later and then Japan in Tampa on Tuesday 5th March. All three matches will be broadcast live on the BBC.
England finished second in last season's competition after recording a 4-1 win over France, Neville's first match as head coach, and drawing 2-2 with Germany before slipping to a 1-0 defeat by the US in the decider.
Their fourth participation in the annual competition will act as vital preparation for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup finals where they'll once again face the Japanese in their final group game.
There's a return for Manchester City's Gemma Bonner who last played for the Lionesses in a 5-0 victory over Kazakhstan in November 2017.
Bonner's City team mate Lauren Hemp and Clemson University goalkeeper Sandy MacIver, who were part of Mo Marley's U20 squad to secure bronze at last summer's World Cup, will also join the group and take part in training with the senior team.
The duo will travel to the US as part of their continued development around the senior England set up but will not be able to play in the three fixtures.
Millie Bright and Jade Moore are to remain with their clubs as part of the long term management of their return to full fitness.
Head coach Neville said: "The quality and depth of the squad is so deep now, which makes selecting 23 players a difficult task.
"The SheBelieves Cup is a fantastic tournament and I'll never forget my first game in charge against France a year ago.
"There are four great teams, playing in great stadiums, with great crowds. The players share my enthusiasm for the tournament, that's why we continue to take part.
"All four nations are among the top eight in the FIFA rankings so we know we'll be tested and need to be at our best in all three matches.
"The tournament is a vital stage in our preparations ahead of the World Cup for our staff and players, but it's important to note the door is not shut to any player with ambitions of making the World Cup squad.
"It's obviously disappointing for Millie to miss out on the SheBelieves Cup through injury, but our priority - and Millie's - is to manage her rehabilitation very carefully.
"We are taking a long term approach to her recovery process to ensure she is back to full fitness in time for this summer's World Cup in France.
"Jade has shown great strength to overcome a long term injury. After being out for a year-and-a-half, we all agree that her focus should be on returning to full fitness and finishing the season strongly with Reading.
"We're looking forward to working with Lauren and Sandy. Mo Marley and I work very closely together and we're very passionate about the transition of young players into the senior team and seeing as many talented youngsters developing through the pathway as possible. That process doesn't stop just because we're in a World Cup year.
"We're all looking forward to meeting up and everyone is ready and raring to go. These are exciting times ahead and this is a huge year for the Lionesses."
