West Ham United Women's October Internationals - All You Need To Know



Ten West Ham United Women’s players will be away representing their countries during the current international break. 

Our playing squad will be jetting off to a whole host of countries as players take part in qualifying and friendly matches.

Who is playing?

Mackenzie Arnold and Tameka Yallop have been called up by Australia to represent the Matildas in their friendly fixtures against Brazil as they return to Australia for the first time in 2021. 

The Aussies will be hoping that this provides good preparation for them ahead of the upcoming Asian Cup tournament, that is due to take place in India, in January 2022. 

Hawa Cissoko has been selected to represent France in their FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualifiers against Estonia and Kazakhstan in Group I. 

The 24-year-old defender will make her first appearance for her country for the first time since 2017, a fine reward for her solid performances over the last six months. 

Dagny Brynjarsdottir and Katerina Svitkova will battle it out against oneanother, as Iceland host the Czech Republic in Reykjavik in another World Cup qualifier. 

Svitkova is making her return to the national team setup since her injury, and will be hoping to continue the good start that her country have made, as they sit top of Group C. 

Iceland are looking for their first point of the qualifying campaign, having lost to the Netherlands in September.  

Two more of West Ham United’s squad will face off during this international break, with Adriana Leon and Anna Leat set to be involved for Canada and New Zealand respectively.


This will be Canada’s celebration tour, having cliched gold in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics earlier this summer, and they will face the Kiwi’s in back-to-back matches in Ottawa and Montreal. 

Leat is looking forward to linking up with the Football Ferns once again – as new manager Jitka Klimkova takes the reins for the first time. 

Lisa Evans will link up with Scotland after missing out on their previous fixtures due to injury. The 29-year-old will be up against Hungary and Sweden in their two World Cup qualifiers during this international break. 

Scotland have made a great start in Group B, beating the Hungarians away from home before trashing the Faroe Islands in their first every qualifier at Hampden Park. 

Mel Filis and Lucy Parker have been called up to represent England U23s in their friendly away in Belgium. Mo Marley has called the pair up for the first time at this age group, as the Young Lionesses travel to the City of Tubize, located just outside of Brussels to take on the Red Flames.
