Eight Manchester City players have been selected for the latest England squad ahead of the upcoming international break.

Goalkeeping duo Ellie Roebuck and Sandy MacIver have both been given the nod alongside team-mates Alex Greenwood, Laura Coombs, Lauren Hemp and Chloe Kelly.

Esme Morgan is also recalled having been ruled out of the Lionesses’ successful Arnold Clark Cup defence in February through injury, while young City winger Jess Park – currently enjoying a successful loan spell at fellow WSL side Everton – also makes the cut.

Sarina Wiegman’s side begin the latest international break when they welcome Brazil to Wembley Stadium on Thursday 6 April for the inaugural Women’s Finalissima.

Five days later, the Lionesses travel to the Brentford Community Stadium, where they will face upcoming World Cup hosts Australia.

The action gets under way at 19:45, with our England representatives potentially locking horns with Matildas trio Alanna Kennedy, Hayley Raso and Mary Fowler, should they be selected.

Julie Blakstad has also been included in Norway's squad for the latest international break.

The Scandinavians face Spain and Sweden in friendly matches on Thursday 6th April and Tuesday 11 April.

The latter of those fixtures will see her lock horns with City team-mates Filippa Angeldahl, who has been called up for Sweden.
