It’s been a busy international break for Chelsea women, with nine senior international teams being represented.

The Blues will return to training ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against rivals Manchester City.


Chelsea captain Karen Carney played an hour in the Lionesses’ 1-0 defeat to Canada, but Millie Bright was able to help the team to a win in their second friendly, a 2-1 result against Spain. Goalkeeper Carly Telford had to return to Cobham early after suffering a concussion in training prior to the Spain match.


Erin Cuthbert scored past PSG goalkeeper Christiane Endler once again, this time in Scotland’s 1-1 draw with Chile. She then played her part as her team recorded a famous victory against Brazil, 1-0.


Sophie Ingle played the full 90 in a stalemate against the Czech Republic, in front of a record home crowd for a Wales women match (2168).

Switzerland and Finland

Ramona Bachmann earned her 100th international cap in a 0-0 draw with Adelina Engman’s Finland on Saturday. Engman’s Finland won their second match of the break, 1-0 against Poland, whilst Bachmann and Switzerland beat Slovakia by the same scoreline.


A home crowd of over 25,000 showed up to see Hedvig Lindahl, Magdalena Eriksson, and Jonna Andersson start for Sweden against Germany, but the Swedes were on the losing end of a 2-1 scoreline. The trio all played in Sweden’s 2-0 victory in Austria later in the week.

South Korea

Ji So-yun’s Korea side lost 3-2 to Iceland in front of a large home crowd, but in the second tie of the double-header they earned a 1-1 draw, with Ji scoring the equaliser.

New Zealand and Norway

New Zealand and Norway faced off in a double-header of fixtures, with each team winning one, both by the scoreline of 1-0. Ali Riley, Maren Mjelde, and Maria Thorisdottir all played their parts for their respective countries.
