EIGHT BLUES PLAYERS WERE IN INTERNATIONAL ACTION DURING THE BREAK. READ ON TO FIND OUT HOW THEY FARED.

 

England

Lucy Staniforth and Ellen White were called up to Phil Neville’s England squad for the friendlies against Canada and Spain.

They both missed out on a place in the starting line-up at the Academy Stadium, as the Lionesses fell to a 1-0 defeat.  

Neville’s side were hoping to return to winning ways against Spain with the manager making nine changes, including Blues striker White replacing Jodie Taylor.

In her 80th England cap White was central to the action, crossing in for Beth Mead’s opening goal and then doubling the Lionesses lead 40 seconds after half-time with a powerful strike into the top right corner.

Spain pulled a goal back through Aitana Bonmati’s effort, but England held on to win 2-1.

 

England Under-21’s

Charlie Wellings made a dream start to the Under-21’s friendly camp in La Manga as she scored twice against France before half-time.

Marley’s side suffered defeat to Norway as Wellings started, while Connie Scofield made her first appearance of this international break when replacing her fellow club team-mate.

A 1-1 draw against Sweden concluded their camp in La Manga.

 

England Under-19’s

Hannah Hampton helped England Under-19’s book their place at the 2019 UEFA European Championships as she recorded two clean sheets in two appearances against Sweden and Italy.

The young goalkeeper was on hand to keep out the Swedish attack in England’s 4-0 win.

Hannah was awarded Player of the Match against Italy and goals from Jessica Naz and Lauren Hemp were enough to secure qualification for the Women’s Under-19’s EURO in July.

 

Scotland

Chloe Arthur was named in Shelley Kerr’s squad for Scotland’s friendly matches in Pinatar. The Scots took on Chile and recorded a famous 1-0 victory over Brazil.

 

Republic of Ireland

Harriet Scott joined the Republic of Ireland squad, as they travelled to Italy for a singular friendly game.

Scott’s side fell to a 2-1 defeat against Italy at the Mapei Stadium in Reggio Emilia, despite Katie McCabe’s opener three minutes in as the Blues defender played the full 90 minutes.

 

Wales

Hayley Ladd played in front of a record crowd of 2,168 at Rodney Parade in Newport, as Wales were held in a stalemate with Czech Republic.

Ladd played in the heart of the defence alongside Sophie Ingle and Gemma Evans, as Wales celebrated Loren Dykes’ 100th international appearance.
