Captain on Standby for England
Sunderland Ladies' Captain Lucy Staniforth on standby for World Cup Qualifiers
Sunderland's Captain Lucy Staniforth has been placed on standby for England's upcoming World Cup qualifier in Russia.
Phil Neville has named a 20-player squad for the FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifier away to Russia on Friday 8 June.
The Lionesses go into the Moscow match with memories of a 6-0 home win against the same opposition to kick off the campaign back in September.
The club is delighted that Lucy has caught the manager's attention and wish the Lionesses well in their campaign.
