Katie Robinson represented England U23s in their friendly against the Netherlands.

Nine members of the Albion squad have returned from the ten-day international break.

Norway - Guro Bergsvand, Elisabeth Terland and Maria Thorisdottir

Our Norwegian trio faced Croatia in a double header in their UEFA Nations League campaign.

Norway sealed a 3-0 and 5-0 victories and Guro, Elisabeth and Maria all featured in Norway's second clash on Tuesday with Terland getting on the scoresheet.

Norway now sit second in Group A just one point behind Switzerland. 

England U23 – Poppy Pattinson and Katie Robinson 

Our young Lionesses were both called up to Emma Coates’s U23 squad as they faced Spain and the Netherlands in friendlies, with the pair featuring in both games.

England fell to a 3-1 defeat against Spain but managed a draw 1-1 draw against the Netherlands. 

Colombia – Jorelyn Carabali 

Jorelyn featured in all three of Colombia's Group B CONCACAF Gold Cup qualifying matches during the international window.

The Albion defender played three matches during which they secured two wins after falling to a narrow 1-0 defeat against Brazil to seal their place in the quarter-final of the tournament against USA on Monday.

Greece – Veatriki Sarri  

Vea was again called up for Greece as they enjoyed a draw against Romania and a win against Turkey in two friendlies. 

Sweden – Julia Zigiotti and Emma Kullberg  

Sweden faced Bosnia and Herzegovnia in a double header and both featured in their first clash last Friday when the Swedes sealed the first of two 5-0 victories in the Nations League.
