Rachel Daly is one of eight defenders on the England women’s national team roster for the upcoming SheBelieves Cup that kicks off February 27 in Philadelphia.

The former St. John’s women’s soccer star who currently plays for the Houston Dash in the National Women’s Soccer League has been a regular roster selection for head coach Phil Neville.

England opens the four-team, round-robin tournament against Brazil on February 27. The Lionesses will then play the United States in Nashville on March 2 and close out the tournament on March 5 in Tampa against Japan.

England finished second in last season’s SheBelieves Cup after easing to a 4-1 win over France, Neville’s first match as head coach. They would draw 2-2 with Germany before slipping to a 1-0 defeat by the U.S.

About to begin her fourth season in Houston, Daly comes off a 2018 season in which she scored 10 goals and had 2 assists in 24 games. She earned team MVP honors.
