SUNDERLAND Ladies football star Beth Mead has been selected for an England Under 23 camp in La Manga.
The forward travels with the national squad on Sunday for a 10-visit to the Spanish complex, whee England are due to play three internationals.
England will play Sweden next Thursday, China (Saturday) then USA (March 2).
It is a major boost for Mead, who has been in fine form in pre-season for the Lady Black Cats.
The 19-year-old, a prolific scorer up front, has been operating in wide positions as well and has contributed superbly in the back-to-back wins over Glasgow Rangers and Everton.
She will miss Sunday’s Sunderland friendly at Hibernian.
