England name Nordic Cup squad

England name Nordic Cup squad - 11 Jul 2007 - Women's Football NewsIn a busy time for England women's teams, Brent Hills will take a squad of 18 players to the Nordic Under-23 Tournament on Monday.
The Under-23 tournament was won by Germany last year and in the past has been used by competing teams as a final testing ground before elevating players to their senior sides.
"This squad has a range of abilities and international experience," Brent told TheFA.com, "but the level of competition we'll encounter can only be good for the development of our players.
"We have four players in the current senior squad of 30 and if they have a strong tournament, it will do them no harm at all when it comes to Hope selecting her final 21 players for China (and the Women's World Cup).
"For others, it's a chance to show that they can do and press their claims for senior international recognition, whilst for Grace McCatty and Emma Thomas, this will their first taste at a higher level."
This year there are only six competing teams compared the usual eight, but plans have already been made for the Three Lions to play Norway on the last rest day, guaranteeing the players four very tough games.
"The four top ranked countries in the world will be in Finland," continued Brent, "and that calibre of opposition is exactly what this squad of players needs to test themselves against.
"When Germany won last year, they had at least five players in their senior squad of 20.
"The first year of the competition, nine of the Danish squad were also in their senior team, so we know that the games will be hard.
"With the European Under-19 Finals also at the same time, it's far from a quiet summer for our players, but as we continue to try and close the gap on the likes of Germany and the USA, these experiences are invaluable for the players."
This summer, two of the squad (Rachel Axon and Jodie Taylor) have kept match sharp playing alongside Faye White in Canada, whilst Kimberly Dixson and Lynda Shepherd have been in Iceland.
