England look to youth
 Women's Football England International News - 21 Feb 2020
England head coach Phil Neville has injected youth into his squad for the forthcoming SheBelieves Cup as the Lionesses look to retain their title as Champions.
They will face 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup winners USA, Japan and Spain in the four-team round-robin tournament between 5 - 11 March.
Six of Neville's 23-player squad competed for England at the FIFA U20 World Cup in 2018. The inclusion of so many youngsters is an indication of a stepchange in the focus and direction of the England senior set-up with the aim firmly on developing a squad ready to win at EURO2021 in just over 500 days' time.
Grace Fisk receives her first senior call up after impressing Phil Neville at her SEC side South Carolina Gamecocks before earning herself a move to Barclays FAWSL club, West Ham United. Fisk has made 30 appearances for England at youth level and captained the bronze medal winning 2018 FIFA U20 World Cup squad.
Birmingham City's young goalkeeper Hannah Hampton and US-based striker Alessia Russo, who plays for North Carolina Tar Heels, will also join the squad for training sessions in the US as part of their ongoing development.
Head coach Phil Neville said: "This is an exciting moment for the England Women's team. With eight of our squad under the age of 23 - and six of them having competed in the WU20 FIFA World Cup - we are focusing on developing the incredible young talent we have in the women's game with a keen eye on EURO2021 in 16 months' time.
"All of the young players who have been given their opportunity today have earned their places on merit, based on exceptional form and performances at club level as well as for England's development teams, and I am delighted to be giving them all the opportunity they rightly deserve."
The Lionesses begin the SheBelieves tournament in Orlando against hosts and FIFA Women's World Cup 2019 Champions USA at the Exploria Stadium on Thursday 5 March (kick off 7.00pm local time, Friday 6 March 0.00am UK).
The squad then travel to Harrison, New Jersey to take on Japan at the Red Bull Arena on Sunday 8 March (kick off 2.15pm local time, 6.15pm UK), before finishing off against tournament newcomers Spain at the Toyota Stadium, Frisco on Wednesday 11 March (kick off 4.15pm local time, 9.15pm UK). All three fixtures will be broadcast live on the BBC.
