Mo Marley has named her England U21s squad for this month’s training camp which includes Liverpool F.C. Women forward Rinsola Babajide.

Babajide was part of Marley's under-20 side that won a bronze medal last summer with the U20s in France and has netted twice this season for the Reds.

The 22-strong squad, introduced for the current season as part of The FA’s approach to youth development and providing a pathway for talented youngsters will be based at St. George's Park [14-17 January].

There are returns for goalkeeper Sian Rogers and forward Lauren Hemp, who was ruled out of the November camp due to injury.
