Tottenham Hotspur Ladies are off to a flying start in the FA Women’s Championship this season, and now three of their players are being rewarded with call-ups to their national team. Spurs midfielders Josie Green, Megan Wynne, and Anna Filbey have all been called up to participate in a 26-woman training camp for Wales ahead of Euro 2021 by manager Jayne Ludlow. It’s an important step for the Spurs trio, none of whom are capped for their country at the senior level. Spurs are a semi-professional club, and their players are all part-time.
Spurs manager Karen Hills was full of praise her her players on social media.
Really proud and pleased to see our women on this list @JosieGreen_ @MegsWynne @Anna_Filbey99 all talented players who will give everything for the badge they wear. @ThlfcOfficial https://t.co/Dj8NM6oO2M— Karen Hills (@hillsyk5) September 20, 2018
Wales narrowly missed out on qualifying for this summer’s Women’s World Cup in France, finishing just behind England in their qualifying group, and this is an opportunity for Ludlow to bring in some new talent ahead of the Euros. There’s no guarantee that Green, Wynne, or Filbey will make Wales’ final squad — Ludlow is resting Welsh players who play their club football outside of the UK — but it’s an important milestone for a Spurs side that doesn’t usually send players to play at the senior international level.
Wales will play a series of friendlies before the Euro 2021 qualifiers begin later in the year.
Spurs Ladies are off to a 2-0 start in the FA Women’s Championship after a solid 3-0 away win at Leicester City. Sarah Wilshire bagged a brace and Rianna Dean added another, all in the first half. Spurs also picked up a huge victory last week against top flight side Yeovil, winning 4-0 away in the group stage of the FA WSL Cup. Their next league match is home to Sheffield at Cheshunt.
