Call ups for England pair

Jo Potter and Carly Telford have joined the England Women’s squad at St. George’s Park as they prepare for their fixture against Sweden.

The duo join the group in place of Dunia Susi and Rachel Brown-Finnis who pulled out due to leg and neck injuries respectively.

Potter, who plays her club football with Birmingham City, has 13 England caps – but won her last in May 2007.

Carly Telford has also joined up with the group

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Telford has also joined the group in place of Brown-Finnis.

Telford, 27, has appeared for the Lionesses on three occasions since making her debut in 2009.

England are training at The National Football Centre until Friday, before travelling to the north-east ahead of Sunday’s game against Sweden in Hartlepool.

Tickets for the match are on sale now priced £5 for adults and £2.50 for children. A family ticket (two adults and two children) is available at £10 and group booking discounts apply.
