England name squad for October qualifiers
 Women's Football England International News - 13 Oct 2021
England head coach Sarina Wiegman has named a 24-player squad for their October World Cup qualifiers against Northern Ireland and Latvia.
Following England's 8-0 victory over North Macedonia and 10-0 triumph away to Luxembourg, England continue to target qualification for the 2023 World Cup in
Australia and New Zealand.
England face Group D opponents Northern Ireland in their first ever competitive fixture at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 23rd October [kick off: 5.15pm BST], before
travelling to Riga to face Latvia at the Daugava Stadium on 26 October [kick-off: 6:30pm BST].
Wiegman's second squad since joining England sees the return of Aston Villa goalkeeper Hannah Hampton and Manchester United forward Alessia Russo, whilst
Manchester City's Keira Walsh also makes a welcome return to international duty following injury. England are without senior internationals Lucy Bronze, Steph
Houghton and Ellie Roebuck as they continue their return to fitness.
Youngsters Jessica Carter, Niamh Charles, Lauren Hemp, Sandy McIver, Ella Toone and Lotte Wubben-Moy have all retained their place in Wiegman's youthful squad.
Ballon d'Or nominee Ellen White, who was shortlisted for the prestigious award alongside her England team mate Fran Kirby, is close to breaking the England Women's goalscoring record, requiring four goals to surpass Kelly Smith's record of 46.
Head coach Sarina Wiegman said: "After a wonderful start to our World Cup qualifying campaign last month, we are incredibly excited to play our first competitive
fixture at Wembley Stadium.
"The incredible atmosphere our supporters generated at St Mary's Stadium for our match against North Macedonia gave our players and staff a tremendous lift, so the prospect of playing in front of thousands of fans at our national stadium later this month will be a special moment.
"Northern Ireland have made strong progress in recent years, qualifying earlier this year for the 2022 home UEFA Women's EURO. On top of that, their recent 4-0
victory over Latvia shows the strength of their team and their determination to qualify for the World Cup.
"I can't wait to get back together with our squad this weekend. Every player showed great ability and the collective positivity and ambition within the group was fantastic to see. We do still have one or two injuries to key players to contend with, but the depth in our squad is very strong.
"We hope to give our supporters more reasons to celebrate this month as we continue our progress towards qualification."
The Lionesses meet up at England's St George's Park base this Sunday before making the journey to London ahead of their historic competitive fixture at Wembley
