Reading FC Women midfielder Fara Williams has been selected for Phil Neville’s first squad as England manager, as the team gear up for the SheBelieves Cup in the USA next month.
The four-nation round-robin tournament takes place over the course of a week from March 1st – England will meet France, then Germany, and finally hosts USA. The usual points scoring will take place, with three for a win and one for a draw, and whichever nation accrues most will be crowned champions of 2018!
It is the third instalment of the annual tournament, and consequently Williams’ third involvement. She has been part of the England squads who have taken the bronze medal in each of the previous two years.
The team meet this weekend in London before travelling out on Sunday to compete in the USA – England meet France at the MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, before taking on Germany at the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey, and finally Orlando City Stadium in Florida hosts their last game against USA. All three games will be broadcast on the BBC.
Our best wishes for the tournament go to Fara and her international colleagues!
