Lucy Staniforth certainly earned her stripes in England's development teams before making her senior bow in September 2018.
The attacking midfielder represented her country at the U17 World Cup in 2008 before helping the U19s reach back-to-back European Championship finals, with Mo Marley's side winning the competition in 2009.
Staniforth progressed to the Under-23s while waiting for her first taste of senior international football.
She started England's final 2019 World Cup qualifier, one of seven full debutants in Kazakhstan, getting on the scoresheet in a 6-0 win. And she bettered that with the opening goal in the pivotal 3-0 win over Japan at the SheBelieves Cup.
Staniforth appeared in the 2009 Women's FA Cup Final for her hometown club Sunderland.
