Brent Hills has named his England Women’s Under-23 squad for their Four Nations Tournament campaign in La Manga at the end of the month.

The 18-strong squad is dominated by FA WSL players with Everton providing four and Birmingham City and Lincoln providing three each.

Former U19 captains Jordan Nobbs and Michelle Hinnigan, who lifted the UEFA European U19 Championship trophy in Belarus in 2009, have been included, as has Toni Duggan who, along with Nobbs, scored in the Euro Final victory over Sweden.

England will take on Norway (26 February), USA (28 February) and Sweden (1 March) in this round-robin tournament and this group of young players will look to use these matches to help them follow the path recently made by Rachel Williams, Fern Whelan, Dani Buet and Natasha Dowie from the Under-23s into the seniors.

I understand why they do it, but isn't funny that a 24 year olds is selected for a U23 camp ?
Same as last year with Margie  ;)

U23s primed to shine

Brent Hills has urged his young squad to impress in next month's training camp

England Women’s Under-23 training camp
St. George’s Park
Sunday 11 November – Thursday 15 November 2012

Twenty-nine budding England Women’s internationals will get the chance to impress the Three Lions’ assistant manager in November.

Brent Hills will take a large pool of Under-23 players to St. George’s Park for a five-day training camp and he will remind them of the opportunities that lie ahead.

He said: “These players are potentially just one step away from the senior team so it’s vital to get them together in an international environment, especially because there are no UEFA or FIFA tournaments at this level.

“But this is also a chance for all the players to put themselves in the shop window, be that for a central contract, for a place at Euro 2013 and looking a bit further down the line, maybe the World Cup in 2015 as well.”

Most of Hills’s squad have plenty of international experience at youth level and eleven of them won the U19 Euros in 2009.

Birmingham midfielder Jade Moore has already earned four caps for the senior team, while Chelsea defender Gemma Bonner and Arsenal youngster Jordan Nobbs have both been called into Hope Powell’s side in the past.

Squad in full

Goalkeepers
Ashley Baker (University of Georgia), Lauren Davey (Watford), Juliana Draycott (Leeds United), Mary Earps (Doncaster Rovers Belles), Sarah Quantrill (Liverpool)
Defenders
Gemma Bonner (Chelsea), Lucy Bronze (Everton), Samantha Chappell (Liverpool), Naomi Cole (Lewes Ladies), Lyndsey Cunningham (Doncaster Rovers Belles), Alex Greenwood (Everton), Kerys Harrop (Birmingham City), Jasmine Matthews (Bristol Academy), Grace McCatty (Bristol Academy), Jemma Rose (Bristol Academy), Chelsea Weston (Birmingham City), Victoria Williams (Doncaster Rovers Belles)
Midfielders
Remi Allen (Lincoln Ladies), Brooke Chaplen (Everton), Michelle Hinnigan (Everton), Kasia Lipka (Doncaster Rovers Belles), Jordan Nobbs (Arsenal), Lucy Staniforth (Lincoln Ladies), Sophie Walton (Lincoln Ladies)
Forwards
Danielle Carter (Arsenal), Isobel Christiansen (Birmingham City), Laura Coombs (Chelsea), Kate Longhurst (Chelsea).

the lack of Arsenal players in there may not bode well for the future considering the number of 30 somethings in the current squad..... :(

You can bet that a majority of those U23 won't make the grade. She must have some special skills though.

I saw Sam Chappell play in the northern league and she was a promising right-back but very slight.

She seems to have been on a steak, eggs and guinness diet since then!

I've even seen her hold her own playing at centre-half.

But let's see how she copes with some decent players around her before writing her off.

Liverpool had a few 6/10 players who were dragged down to 5/10 players by inferior teammates and shambolic tactics.

If Beardo can sprinkle some more stardust, next season their standards might well be dragged UP into being 7/10 players.

In the same squad Bronze, Cunningham and Weston are also right-backs and 2 of those are better than her without any doubt but may never get a senior cap with Scott, Houghton and Susi currently in the seniors.
So Chappell must be like 7th or 8th down the line really.

True, and don't believe it to be sour grapes, just saying what we see. Players who look ok in the Northern Division do not translate well into the WSL which is why Liverpool failed for two seasons. But we all know in regards to England if you're in the system early and tow the line with what they want then you will stay in the system regardless. For example as a full back i believe Harding was a better choice and more experienced player and I believe Vicky Jones would have done a good job at right back too.

I also know players who got kicked out at youth level and never got back in...one strike and you are finished.

Which begs the question  are the best players involved and being picked (we know they aren't) makes me chuckle when I see hope powell going on about getting the best players etc for the national side. PICK THEM THEN!

There might be some reason that are not football related. The coach does not  pick Bompastor, Tonazzi and Henry  for France for non football reasons and everybody knows they are top class and should be there.

If they're not football related to my mind the coach has to be asked the question. Noticed that Powell, in her interview after the french game, look a little less confident than she has done in previous one. Perhaps this is due to more and more exposure for the game (which is what she wants) but she has to understand the scrutiny will come and when it does not to complain about it. Didn't rate the Beanie and Cap combo either!

Also the punditry was ok on BBC however still a bit too 'pally-pally' with current england internationals on the sofa. Needs a bit more edge, though still better than Alan Shearer - Leading Premier League Scorer of all time 260 Goals. Same stat. Every. Single. Week.

I wouldn't be surprised if some players are blacklisted as they don't get on with some England seniors,or simply the coaches don't like those players.

To be fair, Hope said in her first interview she was feeling under the weather.

The touchline reporter asker her for team news, then she reeled off the starting XI but forgot Alex Scott!
