The Manchester United defender was part of two Lionesses squads prior to the World Cup, but did not make the final cut for that tournament in which England were finalists, although she did travel to Australia on stand-by.

The Lionesses play against Scotland at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light on Friday 22 September before travelling to Utrecht to face the Netherlands on Tuesday 26 September.

Both games kick off at 7.45pm BST and will be shown live on ITV.
