Ten City stars called up for Lionesses

City will have ten representatives for England's upcoming friendly at St George's Park.

Ellie Roebuck, Lucy Bronze, Steph Houghton, Alex Greenwood, Keira Walsh, Georgia Stanway, Chloe Kelly, Ellen White and Lauren Hemp have all been selected in the Lionesses' squad, as has Jill Scott, who is currently on loan at Everton and could make her 150th international appearance.

Led by newly-appointed assistant coach Hege Riise, the Lionesses will meet up for the first time since November to begin preparations for next year's home Euros tournament.


In their first competitive action for almost a year, England will play two friendlies against Northern Ireland and Canada in the coming months.

The game against Northern Ireland will take place on Tuesday 23 February in a 12:30pm kick-off, behind-closed-doors at St George's Park. Fans can tune in via the BBC iPlayer and Red Button.

The visit of Canada is scheduled for Tuesday 13 April with the venue and kick-off time still to be confirmed.

England last faced Canada in a World Cup warm-up match at the Academy Stadium back in April 2019.

City are next in action on Friday night with an eagerly-awaited Manchester Derby, as Gareth Taylor's side look to leapfrog Manchester United in the FA Women's Super League table as the title race heats up.

Only the second professional home league Derby, the clash kicks-off at 19:00 (UK time) on Friday 7 February at the Academy Stadium.
