England Women’s manager Phil Neville has named a 28-player squad, including a recall for fit-again Seattle Reign striker Jodie Taylor for an eight-day, warm-weather training camp in Qatar on 15th January.
With the SheBelieves Cup tournament taking place in the United States from the end of February and the Womens World Cup in France this summer, it will no doubt be a chance to prepare for a busy few months of international football.
Neville said: “After a well-earned break in December, most of the players are back in club action and will be ready to push on. The SheBelieves Cup is a demanding tournament with quality opposition. This training camp in Qatar is crucial for our preparation, as we begin an important year.”
Here is the complete squad list:
Goalkeepers: Karen Bardsley (Man City), Mary Earps (Wolfsburg), Ellie Roebuck (Man City), Carly Telford (Chelsea).
Defenders: Hannah Blundell (Chelsea), Millie Bright (Chelsea), Lucy Bronze (Lyon), Rachel Daly (Houston Dash), Gabby George (Everton), Alex Greenwood (Man Utd), Steph Houghton (Man City), Abbie McManus (Man City), Demi Stokes (Man City), Leah Williamson (Arsenal).
