Rachel Daly was named to England's Women's National Team for a 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifier on June 8 against Russia in Moscow, the Football Association announced today.
The Harrogate, England native has scored one goal in 10 appearances for England, including two appearances in the 2018 Cup earlier this year.
The forward leads the team with four goals and is one goal away from matching her career high of five, set last year. Daly was named the NWSL Player of the Week earlier this week after a two-goal effort elevated Houston to the middle of the table and two points shy of a playoff spot.
Daly will be available for selection as Houston hosts the first-place North Carolina Courage at 5:30 p.m. at BBVA Compass Stadium for its annual Pups to the Pitch match, presented by Houston Methodist. Two- and four-legged fans can watch the match with a special Dash Pups to the Pitch ticket package that includes a ticket to the game, Dash doggie bowl and access to the Bud Light Bunker and Doggie break areas throughout the stadium.
