Wednesday 29 May 2024 13:27

Manchester United Women could have as many as 15 players representing the club on the global stage this summer, as Reds take part in international friendlies and qualifiers for their countries.

Players from England, Canada, Japan, Norway, Republic of Ireland, Spain and Wales have been called up by their respective nations, with important games for each across the next three months.

To save you the hassle, we have compiled all the key details here in a one-stop guide to the fixtures that feature our Reds, taking place across May, June and July.

Le Tissier promoted to full Lionesses squad


Maya moves up from Sarina Wiegman's standby list as England prepare to face France this week.


Following Maya Le Tissier's promotion from the Lionesses' standby list, due to an injury to Chelsea defender Niamh Charles, there are five Reds in the England squad for the upcoming Euro 2025 qualifiers.

Maya joins Mary Earps, Ella Toone, Millie Turner and Grace Clinton - the latter spent 2023/24 on loan at Tottenham Hotspur - in Sarina Wiegman's squad, who play their first qualifier of the summer against France at Newcastle United's St. James' Park on Friday (20:00 BST). Tickets for that Group A3 match are still available.

Following that game, France host England on Tuesday 4 June at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in Saint-Etienne (20:00 BST), before a month-long break precedes two July fixtures.

The Lionesses take on Republic of Ireland - who have called up United defender Aoife Mannion - at Norwich City's Carrow Road on 12 July and then travel to Sweden four days later.


On Saturday 1 June and Wednesday 5 June, United defender Jayde Riviere could feature for Canada in back-to-back friendlies against Mexico.

The first of these matches gets under way at 19:00 BST in Montreal while the second game kicks off at 00:30 BST in Toronto.


Hinata Miyazawa is our sole representative for Japan in their friendlies against New Zealand and Ghana. On Friday, Japan take on the Kiwis in Murcia (15:00 BST) before the two sides do battle once more on Monday 3 June. Kick-off is scheduled for the same time, at the same Nueva Condomina Stadium.

On 13 July, Japan are in action once more, in another friendly, but this time host Ghana at the Kanazawa Go Go Curry Stadium. That one kicks off at (07:20 BST) and, once more, our no.20 could be involved.

Lisa Naalsund cemented her place as a starter for United in 2023/24 and has once more been called up to Norway's squad for their upcoming Euro 2025 qualifiers.

Naalsund could play a role for her nation on Friday, in the Group A1 match against Italy, and in the reverse fixture five days later. Norway then travel to Finland on 12 July before concluding this round of qualifiers by hosting the Netherlands.


The aforementioned Mannion could lock horns with club team-mates when Republic of Ireland meet England in Norwich, but the Reds defender begins the international break with an Aviva Stadium meeting with Sweden on Friday (19:30 BST kick-off).

The sides, both in Group A3 alongside the Lionesses, play the reverse fixture on Tuesday 4 June before the game against England and a match against France take place in July.

The reigning world champions begin the latest round of international fixtures with two games against Denmark in Group A2, which Reds forward Lucia Garcia will hope to play a role in.

Following these matches, which take place on 31 May and 4 June, Spain face Czech Republic away and then Belgium at home in July.


Five United players - Safia Middleton-Patel, Hayley Ladd, Gemma Evans, Mayzee Davies and Olivia Francis - have been called up to Wales squad for their quartet of Euro 2025 qualifiers.

The Dragons first face Ukraine in back-to-back matches on 31 May and 4 June, as is seemingly common for a lot of European nations this summer, and then have a month-long break before locking horns with Croatia and Kosovo in July.

Currently going strong in Group B4, Rhian Wilkinson will be looking for her side to reaffirm their credentials over the next few months.
