SheBelieves Cup: Mead left out of England squad, Roebuck called up

Phil Neville has announced a 23-player squad for the upcoming SheBelieves Cup campaign.

England will face-off against the USA, Spain and Japan across three fixtures over the next month.

Ellie Roebuck will join the Lionesses as part of the goalkeepers’ union. There was some uncertainty surrounding the Manchester City star’s call up after she was spotted in a cast last Sunday.

New Everton signing Sandy MacIver also makes the squad, along with teammate Chloe Kelly. The 22-year-old could make her first international start during the competition.

The big names also remain in the squad through the call up of Toni Duggan, Ellen White and Lucy Bronze.

Arsenal’s Beth Mead has been left out of the squad as a result of an injury suffered against Liverpool in the WSL.
