Aylesbury’s Ellen White has, as expected, been named in England Women’s squad for the Euro 2013 Championships in Sweden on Monday afternoon.
The Lionesses begin their tournament in a tough group on July 12 against Spain before facing Russia on July 15 and France on July 18.
England qualified unbeaten for Euro 2013 and Powell has kept faith with an experienced squad. That means Arsenal’s Ellen White, Chelsea’s Eniola Aluko and Everton striker Toni Duggan have been preferred to Dowie, who has 10 goals in 12 league games for top of the table Liverpool.
England were beaten finalists four years ago in 2009 when they lost to bitter rivals Germany.
