The playmaker, who spent the 2017-18 season on loan from Birmingham City Ladies, was identified by England staff after featuring regularly for Karen Hills' side during the recently-concluded Women's Super League 2 campaign.

The five-day camp began on Wednesday with a friendly game to follow against Sweden Under-23s at the Sävstaås IP sports ground in Bollnäs on Saturday, with Karen underlining her pride at seeing one of the players she's been working with given an opportunity at international level.

"It's recognition for all the work she's done with us this season and it's testament to the work we've done with her," said Karen. "She's come in from Birmingham and fitted in well with us, proving to be a good addition to strengthen what we already had in our squad.

"She's brought some creativity into the middle of the pitch and linked up well with our other players.

"We're all very proud to see her given this chance to go away with England and develop her game in an international environment with a series of players picked from across the women's football spectrum."
