Everton Women Duo Named In England Squad

Everton duo Sandy MacIver and Jill Scott have been named in the England squad for the Lionesses’ upcoming friendly internationals against France and Canada.

Goalkeeper MacIver, who has recently signed a new two-year contract with Everton, made her senior England debut in their 6-0 victory over Northern Ireland last month.

That game also saw Scott make her 150th Lionesses appearance. The midfielder, who is on loan at Everton from Manchester City, is the second-most capped player in England Women’s history, behind only Fara Williams.

England interim head coach Hege Riise has selected a 24-player squad for the international camp.

The squad will meet up at their St. George’s Park training base on Sunday 4 April before facing France in Caen on Friday 9 April.

The Lionesses then take on Canada at Stoke City’s bet365 Stadium on Tuesday 13 April.
