Jordan Nobbs and Leah Williamson have both been called up to the England squad by Phil Neville for the SheBelieves Cup in the United States next month.

The FA announced the squad for the competition on their website on Tuesday.

England will play the USA, France and Germany in early March.

Despite the call up, Williamson won’t actually play in any of the matches, thanks to a knee injury.

The FA wrote: “The group will be joined by Arsenal’s Leah Williamson who will travel to the US as part of her continued development around the England set-up but will not be able to play in the three fixtures.”

Meanwhile, Danielle Carter will be disappointed to miss out on the squad. She was regularly called up for England under interim manager Mo Marley, but Neville clearly wants to see more from her.

On the other hand, that’s not a bad thing from a club point of view. Arsenal play in the Continental Cup Final on 11th March, just a few days after the end of the SheBelieves Cup.

Missing out on the tournament will give Carter an chance to prepare for that match uninterrupted.

England Women played a couple of impressive World Cup qualifiers in November. They eased past Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kazakhstan 4-0 and 5-0 respectively.

Now they have the opportunity to prove themselves against tougher opposition.

Last year, England managed one win and two defeats at the tournament. Hopefully they can improve on that performance this time around.
