Mo Marley will consider Eni Aluko for England Women squad

England Women interim coach Mo Marley says that she is "100%" willing to pick Eni Aluko in the wake of the scandal involving former boss Mark Sampson.

England Women interim coach Mo Marley has admitted that she is "100%" willing to pick Eni Aluko.

The 50-year-old is in temporary charge following Mark Sampson's sacking last month, and will lead the side in a friendly against France on Friday.

Aluko claimed that her 102-cap England career effectively ended when she complained of racism and bullying by Sampson to the FA in 2016.

Asked if she would consider Aluko for England selection, Marley told Sky Sports News: "While I'm the manager, 100%.

"I've only been in post 10 days, and in those 10 days we've had all the talent reporters out assessing the players available to be selected for England and that's not just one player in isolation, it's everybody.

"It's for me to find the players in form, playing well, and help us qualify for the World Cup and go from number three in the world to number one."

On Wednesday, Sampson was found to have made "discriminatory remarks" to Aluko on the grounds of race during an inquiry.
