England Women's Sweden Squad Named
Mark Sampson has named the England Women's side that will face Sweden at Hartlepool's Victoria Road next month.
Following on from injury both Arsenal's Jordan Nobbs, and Chelsea's Claire Rafferty return to international action and Birmingham City's Jo Potter receives a call up for the first time since May 2007. Arsenal's Danielle Carter also gets a returning call up for the first time since she joined the senior squad for the training camp in La Manga last January.
The game takes place on Sunday August 3rd at the home of Hartlepool United, and the match kicks off at 2pm.
Sweden should be a good test ahead of our qualifier against Wales on Thursday August 21, where we make the short trip across the semi border knowing we only need to secure one point from the game to ensure qualification for the finals.
