of course players must be agreeable to the coach and other team members, chapman, great player could not get assurances from the manager and wanted to be with her family.
so, not getting help she retired from england.
sometimes unagreeable players get picked for england, and the players live with it.
there are loads of players at all age groups who do not want to play for the manager. :-X

BRENT HILLS'S SIDE BEAT RUSSIA'S SENIOR TEAM IN LA MANGA

England Women’s Under-23s 2-1 Russia
A Women’s International
Friday 18 January 2013
La Manga, Spain

England Women’s Under-23s recorded a notable victory over the Russia senior team during a training camp in La Manga.

The Russians have been drawn in England’s group at this summer’s European Championship Finals so Head Coach Brent Hills can be pleased with his side’s result.



The Three Lions fell behind in the opening minute but recovered well and a goal apiece from Michelle Hinnigan and Isobel Christiansen secured a 2-1 win.

Hills said: “We put in a very competent performance against a really good senior side, especially in the second half.

“It was a good result, a good all-round performance and a great way to end an excellent week of training.”

Hope Powell’s senior side were also in La Manga on a week-long training camp as they start their preparations for Sweden 2013.

The next step is to compete in the annual Cyprus Cup tournament in March, where England will take on Italy, Scotland and New Zealand.

Laura Coombs and Izzy Christiansen are both attacking midfielder.
That squad has 2 forwards basically. Expect 4-5-1 system with some of the full back actually good enough to play as wingers.

Hills ready for Sweden test

 England Women's U23 boss Brent Hills says his squad are prepared for La Manga opener

 

Four Nations Tournament
England, Sweden, Norway, USA
Thursday 28 February - Monday 4 March 2013
La Manga, Spain

by Glenn Lavery

Head Coach Brent Hills has been pleased with how his England Women’s Under-23 squad have prepared for their match against Sweden on Thursday.

The Young Lions are currently in La Manga for their annual crack at the Four Nations Tournament. After the Swedes, England will take on Norway and USA in quick succession.

Hills said: “Training has gone well so far. The weather has been good and everyone is fit which is all you can ask for going into your first game.

“Three games in five days is a very challenging schedule but it’s a fantastic grounding for the girls in terms of how to cope with tournament football.”

Alongside a number of seasoned Under-23 campaigners such as Chelsea Weston, Kerys Harrop and Michelle Hinnigan, Hills has called up uncapped trio Alex Greenwood, Millie Bright and Beth Donoghue to see how they fare at this level.

He explained: “It’s a bit of a mixed squad with a few younger players involved for the first time.


“[U19 Head Coach] Mo Marley thinks Millie, Beth and Alex are all talented players so we thought it would be a good idea to have a look at them in this environment.

“All the younger girls have worked hard, they have settled in well and tried to take on everything we have said so I’m pleased.”

And Hills believes England’s three opponents in La Manga will provide his side with a stern examination.

He added: “Sweden are going to be tough. They won the U19 Euros last season so that says it all.

“And from what I hear they have got a talented group with them this week so it is a game that should really test us.

“Every time we meet up I always remind the players that these matches are a chance for them to impress and prove they are able to cope with the demands of international football.

“If they are to make the next step it is up into the seniors, a route a lot of players have taken in recent seasons, the likes of Toni Duggan and Jordan Nobbs, who these girls will know well.

“There is a lot for these girls to aim for, be that earning a central contract, forcing their way into Hope [Powell]’s thinking ahead of the Euros or the World Cup in 2015.”

Goalkeepers
Ashley Baker, Mary Earps
Defenders

Four Nations Tournament
2pm GMT, Thursday 28 February 2013
La Manga, Spain

England got their Four Nations Tournament campaign off to a winning start by beating Sweden 2-0 in La Manga.

Lucy Staniforth fired Brent Hills’s side into the lead on 21 minutes with a 25-yard drive and captain Gemma Bonner sealed the win in the 51st minute, heading home from a corner.

The scoreline might have looked even healthier but for Isobel Christiansen seeing her effort ruled out by the referee.

Next up for the Young Lions is Norway on Saturday.

England
1 Ashley Baker, 2 Kerys Harrop, 6 Alex Greenwood, 7 Naomi Cole, 8 Gemma Bonner (C), 9 Lucy Bronze, 10 Lucy Staniforth, 12 Michelle Hinnigan, 14 Remi Allen, 15 Danielle Carter, 16 Isobel Christiansen.

 An own goal gives England Women's Under-23s victory over Norway in La Manga

 

England Under-23s 1-0 Norway
Four Nations Tournament
11am GMT, Saturday 2 March 2013
La Manga, Spain

A late Cecilie Liane own goal handed England victory over Norway in their second Four Nations Tournament match in La Manga.

A fairly uneventful encounter was settled in the 87th minute when Liane inadvertently directed a Lucy Bronze cross past Hilde Gunn Olsen.

That goal secured the Three Lions’ second win inside three days, following Thursday’s 2-0 win over Sweden.

Brent Hills’s side will finish up against USA on Monday.

England
13 Mary Earps, 3 Chelsea Weston, 4 Jasmine Matthews, 5 Jemma Rose, 8 Gemma Bonner (C), 9 Lucy Bronze, 10 Lucy Staniforth, 12 Michelle Hinnigan, 14 Remi Allen, 15 Danielle Carter, 16 Isobel Christiansen.
Substitutes: 1 Ashley Baker, 2 Kerys Harrop, 6 Alex Greenwood, 7 Naomi Cole, 11 Kasia Lipka, 17 Beth Donoghue, 18 Millie Bright.

 Stephanie Ochs gives USA a late victory over England Women's U23s in La Manga

 

USA 2-1 England Under-23s
Four Nations Tournament
11am GMT, Monday 4 March 2013
La Manga, Spain

A late goal from Stephanie Ochs handed USA victory over England in the final Four Nations Tournament match in La Manga.

Julie Johnston headed the United States into the lead from a 38th-minute corner.

Kerys Harrop equalised just four minutes later after Gemma Bonner saw her shot saved by Abby Smith.

But Ochs popped up with five minutes remaining to inflict the only defeat on England during their time in Spain.

Brent Hills’s side defeated Sweden 2-0 last Thursday and Norway 1-0 on Saturday.

England
1 Ashley Baker, 2 Kerys Harrop,  3 Chelsea Weston, 6 Alex Greenwood, 8 Gemma Bonner (C), 9 Lucy Bronze, 10 Lucy Staniforth (11 Kasia Lipka, 75), 12 Michelle Hinnigan, 14 Remi Allen, 15 Danielle Carter, 16 Isobel Christiansen (5 Jemma Rose, 75).

Five Blues Ladies stars have been called up to an England Women U23 training camp next month.

Goalkeeper Mary Earps, defenders Chelsea Weston and Kerys Harrop and forward Izzy Christiansen are all part of the young Three Lions party.

However the most notable inclusion is that of forward Kirsty Linnett. It tops off a stunning start to the 2013 campaign for the former Leicester and Arsenal player after a nightmare two years....


The U23 training camp, from June 21 to 27, will also include fixtures against Sweden and Norway.

No mention so far of the full squad list and I bet those 2 friendlies are behind closed door at SGP. A very nice tool that training ground. It prevents fans from watching those international youth games.I have seen U15,U17,U19 and U23 games for years and since SGP has opened well nil.

Norway announced their team today and said the match is at the University of Warwick.  Is that at Coventry? any idea where it is?
The good old FA has a web page for the U-23 women, it still has a preview of the last Algarve Cup :)
