Nine City players selected for England squad

Nine City stars have been named in Sarina Wiegman’s squad for England’s upcoming Women’s World Cup qualifiers.

Ellie Roebuck, Lucy Bronze, Demi Stokes, Alex Greenwood, Georgia Stanway, Keira Walsh, Lauren Hemp and Ellen White have all been selected, while Jill Scott, on loan at Aston Villa, also make the cut for matches against North Macedonia and Northern Ireland .

April’s international break represents the first competitive matches for England since they won the inaugural Arnold Clark Cup in February 2022.

And in a relatively unchanged squad from that success, all nine City players who helped the Lionesses to glory have been selected once again.

Sarina Wiegman’s side currently boast a 100% record in Group D of European World Cup qualifying and, should results elsewhere fall in their favor across the break, they could secure a spot at next year’s tournament with two more wins.

The Lionesses first travel to Skopje on Friday 8 April to face fifth-placed North Macedonia, with kick-off scheduled for 19:00 (UK).

Our City contingent then travel to Windsor Park on Tuesday 12 April to lock horns with Northern Ireland – currently battling for a play-off spot with Austria – in a 19:55 kick-off.
