England Women’s rising talent will get the chance to impress again when the WU23s take on Estonia in a friendly on Tuesday 30 November.

Under Mo Marley’s guidance, the squad will meet Estonia in a 1.30pm kick-off at St. George’s Park. Last month, the WU23s were 1-0 winners away to Belgium and will hope for another encouraging outing in their last fixture of 2021.

Meanwhile, Emma Coates is to lead a development squad to take part in the Algarve Cup in Portugal from 21-30 November. The Young Lionesses will take on Norway at 4pm on Wednesday 24 November before meeting the Netherlands at 1pm on Monday 29 November.

England head coach Sarina Wiegman said: “The return of international football in these last few months has been positive for everyone. Of course, this goes for the fans and our senior players – but we cannot underestimate how especially important it is for our younger age groups to be getting these kind of games.

“To play against different nations and experience new styles and surroundings is so helpful. For those coming through, they can grow as people as well as players. I hope everyone involved in these matches has a good camp and enjoy the honour of
representing England.”
