Internationals for our women's players
Wed 24 November 2021, 15:00|Tottenham Hotspur
Ahead of the last stretch of Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixtures before Christmas, Spurs Women head into the final international break of the year with several of our players set to represent their countries over the next week.
Qualifiers for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup continue at pace and Finland and Tinja-Riikka Korpela face a trip to Gothenburg to face Sweden in a top of Group A clash. After a narrow defeat to third-placed Republic of Ireland during the last international window, the Finns will be aiming to tighten their grip on the second qualifying spot.
Josie Green, Esther Morgan and Academy player Morgan Rogers are also set for qualifying action as they look to build on their impressive campaign to secure a place at the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup. Gemma Grainger’s side are second in the group with three wins and a draw so far.
Meanwhile, our rising homegrown talent of Angela Addison, Asmita Ale and Jessica Naz have each received their first call-up to the England under-23s squad for their upcoming friendly against Estonia at St George’s Park.
Australia and Kyah Simon are set to host United States in a friendly double-header in Sydney and Newcastle over the next week. The two sides last met in the bronze medal match at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics where the USA emerged victorious in a 4-3 thriller.
Moving north, So-hyun Cho’s South Korea will face Ria Percival’s New Zealand in two back-to-back friendlies at the Goyang Stadium. The international friendlies will be the last opportunity for Kyah and So-hyun to impress before final squads are selected for the AFC Women’s Asian Cup in February next year.
