Manager Rehanne Skinner said  “This is a great opportunity for the players to test themselves against strong opposition and to show they have the ability to compete against one of the top nations in Europe at St. George’s Park,” said Skinner.

“We want to develop the players’ ability to handle high-pressure matches and thrive. The purpose of this age group is to continue to expose players to experiences that will help them transition and bridge the gap for the next step.

“Recently we’ve seen multiple under-21 players receive a senior call up by Phil Neville which is a fantastic opportunity for those players and also shows the other U21 players the strong link to our Senior Lionesses and something for them to aspire to.”
