WINSFORD-BORN goalkeeper Sandy MacIver will have the chance to add to her debut England cap next week.

The Everton stopper – a former Weaverham High School pupil – has been named in the Lionesses squad for two upcoming friendly matches.

MacIver, who made her debut in last month’s 6-0 friendly win over Northern Ireland, will compete with Karen Bardsley, Ellie Roebuck and Carly Telford for a spot between the sticks in Hege Riise’s team.

England face France in Caen on April 9 before taking on Canada at Stoke's bet365 Stadium four days later.

Interim Lionesses boss Riise oversees the France and Canada games before naming a Great Britain squad for the summer's Tokyo Olympics in May.

Riise said: "We have such an exciting group of players; many have enormous major tournament experience and others have proven themselves capable of competing for England at the highest level.

"It was very important for us to secure fixtures against top opponents in France and Canada. France are currently ranked third in the world and Canada are eighth, so this international window will really test our squad against some of the best in the world.

"This is crucial as we move closer to the Tokyo Olympics, but also important as we continue to prepare this squad to compete at the home Euros next year and the World Cup in 2023.

"I look forward to two exciting fixtures and the opportunity of challenging every player to impress us and stake their claim for a place in the shortlist for GB Football.

"I have also been watching very closely those players from the home nations who are in contention for the GB squad and I will continue to do so right up until we shortlist next month."
