SUNDERLAND will have two players at the women’s Nordic tournament next week after England Under 23 today called up Rebekah Bass.

The winger, who celebrated her 22nd birthday at the weekend, joins Lady Black Cats team-mate Beth Mead in the squad for the trip to Norway.

England will play the host nation next Wednesday, Sweden on the 29th and the USA on the 31st.

Bass, who joined Sunderland from Leeds United in 2013, was in the Cats side who won Women’s Super League 2 last season, but has found chances limited this year.

The wide midfielder featured in pre-season, including the FA Cup defeat at Aston Villa, but has played only one WSL1 game, a late appearance as a sub in the 3-0 win over Birmingham City.
