Six Sunderland girls have been selected for the forthcoming UEFA European WU19 Championship: 2nd Qualifying Round in Hungary.


Congratulations go to Lucy Bronze, Jordan Nobbs and Demi Stokes, with Lucy Staniforth, Rachael Laws and Sophie Williams on standby.


All at Sunderland Women's FC wish every success to all girls.

Congratulations also go to Lucy Staniforth and Sophie Halliday who made the starting eleven, when the England U17s played Spain on Sunday evening in Belgium.  England began their UEFA Women's U17 2nd Qualifying Round mini-tournament with a 2-0 defeat despite dominating possession in the first-half, but Spain made England pay with two clinical finishes. 

Next up for England is Czech Republic on Tuesday who beat Belgium 1-0 in the group's other game.
