Woody wins call up for Four Nations Tournament in China
« on: January 04, 2007, 09:53:57 AM »
England Head Coach Hope Powell has named her 20 player squad for the Four Nations Tournament in Guangzhou City later this month, which sees the recall of Emily Westwood, with China, USA and Germany the opponents.

Everton midfielder Westwood was the only player from outside the top flight to make the final cut for the 2005 European Championship [when at Wolverhampton Wanderers] but since moving to Everton, has been hampered by injury.

In a league fixture against Arsenal in October 2005, Emily sustained an articular cartilage injury and her rehabilitation was further hampered when she required another operation for a micro-fracture.

However, a substitute appearance for The Toffees in August at The FA Women's Community Shield signalled her comeback, followed by a call-up into an England training camp the same month.

After getting some valuable game action under her belt since the start of this season, Emily will now be hoping to make her first appearance for England since the 4-1 away victory to Austria at the start of the World Cup qualifying campaign.
