ENGLAND UNDER 20 SQUAD ANNOUNCED

Mo Marley has named her England squad for the FIFA Women’s U20 World Cup

Seventeen of the 21 players helped the Young Lions finish runners-up to France at last year’s U19s Euros, while Arsenal’s Leah Williamson and Everton’s Gabrielle George starred at the U17 Euros just before Christmas.

There is also room for Birmingham City forward Jess Carter and Aston Villa goalkeeper Caitlin Leach.

Every squad member has previously represented England at youth level and ten of them have featured in every League game for their club so far this season across FA WSL 1 and FA WSL 2.

England have been drawn in Group C alongside South Korea (who they will face on 6 August), Mexico (9 August) and Nigeria (13 August).

The last time England reached an U20 World Cup was in 2010, when they faced opposition from Mexico and Nigeria, and six members of that squad – Gemma Bonner, Lucy Bronze, Demi Stokes, Jade Moore, Jordan Nobbs and Toni Duggan – have since gone on to earn senior team recognition.
