England call-up for City septet

Man City Women will have seven representatives in England's upcoming Euro 2017 qualifiers.

Karen Bardsley, Steph Houghton, Lucy Bronze, Demi Stokes, Izzy Christiansen, Jill Scott and Nikita Parris have all received the nod from Mark Sampson, ahead of the Lionesses' double header of games against Estonia and Belgium.  

England host the Estonians at Notts County's Meadow Lane on Thursday 15 September. A 7-0 win over Serbia in June sealed qualification to the Euro 2017 final.

The Lionesses then face the Belgians five days later in Leuven.

Sampson said: “We may have qualified for the Euros but our focus for our last two qualifiers is absolute.

“We are a top team and that means we must top our group. We know we face two challenging matches but our focus is two wins to go to Netherlands as group winners.

I know this group of players will fight hard to get the two wins we want.

Tickets for the Estonia match are priced £7.50 for adults and £3.50 for children. A family ticket is available, via phone booking only, priced £15 (two adults and two children).

Tickets can be bought via TheFA.com/Tickets or by calling 0115 955 7210.

Full squad:

Karen Bardsley (Manchester City), Laura Bassett (Notts County), Mille Bright (Chelsea), Lucy Bronze (Manchester City), Karen Carney (Chelsea), Danielle Carter (Arsenal), Siobhan Chamberlain (Liverpool), Isobel Christiansen (Manchester City), Rachel Daly (Houston Dash), Gemma Davison (Chelsea), Gilly Flaherty (Chelsea), Steph Houghton (Manchester City), Jade Moore (Notts County), Jordan Nobbs (Arsenal), Nikita Parris (Manchester City), Jo Potter (Notts County), Claire Rafferty (Chelsea), Alex Scott (Arsenal), Jill Scott (Manchester City), Rebecca Spencer (Chelsea), Demi Stokes (Manchester City), Casey Stoney (Arsenal), Fara Williams (Arsenal).
