Lionesses Call-up for Bruton
First England Senior Call-up for Lauren Bruton
Lauren Bruton has been given her first call-up to the England Senior squad by manager Phil Neville. Bruton has previously played for England U17's and U19's, winning the European Championship with the latter in 2009.
Lauren Bruton : 'I've really enjoyed being in training with the team over the last week or so, so to receive my first official Senior call-up is just the icing on the cake! Finishing fourth and now this, what a great end to a great season'
Initially on the standby list, she will now travel alongside Lucy Staniforth (Sunderland) to Moscow with the Squad for their FIFA Women's World Cup Qualifier against Russia. Due to minor foot and thigh injuries, Jordan Nobbs (Arsenal) and Izzy Christiansen (Manchester City) have had to withdraw from squad. The Lionesses will be hoping to reproduce a similar performance to their last meeting with Friday's opponents, a 6-0 victory at Prenton Park.
