England women's football coach Mo Marley has finalised her squad for the Under-19 Uefa European Championship finals in Germany later this month.

Marley has picked a strong squad for the tournament by including two full senior internationals with Fara Williams and Kelly McDougall being selected.

Eniola Aluko, 16, scored on her debut in April's qualifying group and the Umbro player of the Year is also in the party.

The squad also features newcomer Karen Bardsley.

Match schedule
25 July Sweden v England
27 July Italy v England
29 July England v Germany

She is an American-born goalkeeper at California State University and qualifies to play through English parentage.

Bardsley attended a training camp last month in Colchester and impressed enough to make the final cut.

Marley's side have a tough draw for the group stage of the finals, including a game against reigning champions Germany.

The second group at the competition comprises 2002 finalists France, Holland, Spain and Norway with the top two in each group progressing to the semi-finals.

England have a proud championship record to uphold following last year's achievements.

In season 2001-02 England reached the semi-finals of the European championships when they lost to Germany by a single penalty.

They also reached the quarter-finals of the inaugural Fifa U19 World Championship, losing 6-2 to hosts Canada in front of 23,000 people in Edmonton.

England squad: Karen Bardsley (California State University Fullerton/Infinity, USA), Carly Telford (Sunderland), Shelly Cox (Leeds United), Beth Bailey (Birmingham City), Jo Traynor (Everton), Faye Cardin (Birmingham City), Laura Husselbee (Arsenal), Hayley Kemp (Arsenal), Kelly McDougall (Everton), Anita Asante (Arsenal), Sheuneen Ta (Arsenal), Emma Thomas (Arsenal), Fara Williams (Charlton Athletic), Alex Scott (Arsenal), Katy Ward (Birmingham City), Jo Potter (Birmingham City), Eniola Aluko (Birmingham City), Michelle Evans (Tranmere Rovers)
