Mo Marley has named her England U21s squad for this month’s training camp.
The 22-strong squad, introduced for the current season, will be based in Warwick and will train at St. George's Park [4-7 November].
13 of the group represented England at the U20 World Cup finals in France under Marley earlier this year and a handful of this squad will be invited to take part in senior team training as part of our approach to youth development and providing a pathway for talented youngsters.
Lionesses head coach Phil Neville, who awarded seven players their full international debuts in September’s World Cup qualifying match in Kazakhstan, said: “I’m looking forward to inviting a number of the U21 team into our senior squad training sessions during the international camp.
“It will give them an excellent experience and allow me to see at first-hand how much progress they’ve made in recent months.
“Providing young players with the opportunity to progress into the senior team is something that Mo Marley and I are very keen to encourage, so having the U21s on camp at the same time is a great opportunity for us to do just that.”
Neville's seniors will be preparing for their World Cup warm-up games with Austria and Sweden, with the Lionesses squad for those games named earlier this week.GET SWEDEN TICKETS
