New Manager Announces First Squad Ahead Of France Friendly

New England interim manager Mo Marley has announced her first squad ahead of next Friday’s friendly in France.

Speaking on the squad, Mo Marley said:

“The squad put in an excellent performance against Russia last month and we want to keep that momentum going against France.”

“We know France are an excellent side and it will be a tough challenge for us. It’s a good opportunity for me to see the players in action against top opposition, especially considering our two important home World Cup qualifiers next month.
