Brent Hills' selects 18 players to face Norway, USA and Sweden.
Four Nations Tournament
Sunday 26 February - Thursday 1 March 2012
England, Norway, USA, Sweden
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.
