Sarina names first England squad
 Women's Football England International News - 10 Sep 2021
England's new head coach Sarina Wiegman has named a 25-player squad for the Lionesses' 2023 World Cup qualifying campaign which kicks off in September.
Wiegman's England are targeting qualification for the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in just less than two years.
England face Group D opponents North Macedonia at Southampton's St. Mary's Stadium on 17th September [7pm], before travelling to Luxembourg for their second group game at State de Luxembourg on 21st September [6.15pm].
Wiegman began her new role at St George's Park on 1st September, having guided Netherlands to the quarter finals of the Olympic Games football tournament earlier this summer.
Wiegman has called up 16 members of Team GB's football squad who also reached the quarter final stage at the Tokyo Games.
In a nod to England's future, youngsters Jessica Carter, Niamh Charles, Lauren Hemp, Sandy McIver, Esme Morgan, Ebony Salmon, Ella Toone, and Lotte Wubben-Moy have all secured their place in Wiegman's squad.
Manchester City's Esme Morgan and Manchester United's Katie Zelem have their sights set on gaining their first caps but have been involved in senior training camps over the last year. Manchester City trio Lucy Bronze, Keira Walsh and Ellie Roebuck miss out on selection due to injury.
Meanwhile experienced internationals Mary Earps and Lucy Staniforth make their return to the squad after being absent from recent international camps.
Head coach Sarina Wiegman said: "I'm extremely excited to get started. After leading Netherlands in the Olympic Games it has been a quick turnaround to get ready for this important camp with England and the start of our 2023 World Cup qualifying campaign.
"Our coaching team and scouts have done a tremendous job in ensuring me and Arjan Veurink, my assistant coach who joins me from the Netherlands, are fully prepared.
"Whilst we have a few injuries to key players to contend with, we have such a strong squad and I'm excited by the young talent we have called up for this camp.
"Of course, we have two challenging matches this month as we start our qualification for the World Cup in 2023, but we also have a strong focus on next summer's home UEFA Women's EURO. I can't wait to see what we can all do together to bring success to England.
"It will be emotional to finally welcome fans back to the stadium for our home game against North Macedonia. They have had a long wait due to Covid-19 and the restrictions that has brought, but they are such an important part of our journey over the next few years and I hope to see a big crowd at St Mary's Stadium next Friday."
The Lionesses meet up on the south coast on Monday to begin preparations for their FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying match against North Macedonia at St Mary's Stadium. The game will be the first opportunity in just under two years for England fans to watch the Lionesses on home soil; the last time was at Wembley Stadium against Germany in November 2019.
Supporters can be part of the action once again as England kick off their new era under Sarina Wiegman. Tickets for the match against North Macedonia at St Mary's Stadium, Southampton on Friday 17th September [7pm] are priced at £15 for adults and £2.50 for children. Concessions and group discounts are also available at TheFA.com/tickets.
Next month, fans will also have the opportunity to be a part of history as England Women play their first ever competitive fixture at Wembley against Group D contenders, Northern Ireland. The match kicks off at 5.15pm BST on Saturday 23rd October and tickets are priced from £20 for adults and £2.50 for children. Concessions and group discounts are also available, visit TheFA.com/tickets.
