Maya gets Lionesses call up

Wednesday 14 February 2024


Guernsey's Maya Le Tissier will don the three lions later this month, with games coming up against Austria and Italy.

The Manchester United Women’s star, who plays left back, is among seven other defenders named in the England Squad by Manager Sarina Wiegman.

She and the team will play their first games of the year in country colours, who later begin qualifications for Euro 2025 in April, seeking to defend their historic trophy win.

A training camp in Spain will also give the squad a time to regroup and gel, with a draw for the qualifiers slated for 5 March.

"Playing against strong teams like Austria and Italy is just the preparation we need before we kick off our qualifying campaign in April. I am really looking forward to getting back on the grass with the squad," Weigman said.

"Being in Spain with hopefully good weather and excellent facilities is the perfect setting for the work we need to do as a team to get us ready for another very important year ahead."

The first game is in nine days at 19:45 against Austria, with the next fixture on 27 February at 17:00. Both games are being played at the Estadio Nuevo Mirador in Algeciras.
