England play the follow up friendly against Canada at the bet365 Stadium in Stoke, with Morgan available for selection for both games.

The 20-year-old is currently uncapped at senior international level but was called up by former manager Phil Neville for a training camp in September and has represented England previously at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 levels.

Morgan has continued to establish herself at Manchester City this season following a loan at Everton in 2019/20 that ultimately had to be cut short when the WSL was abandoned.
