England’s U20 women’s star scores stunning goal

Early Doors

Remember the name: Beth Mead.

The England U20 star scored an absolute belter against Mexico in a 1-1 draw in what was a big World Cup match.

The Sunderland player earned a share of the points with a blistering strike after a wonderful piece of skill to jink past an opponent.

England did not have much to enjoy from the men's senior team in Brazil this summer, and frankly a few of the established national stars should take note of Mead's display on the big stage.

The composure from Mead to pick out the far corner of the net from distance after coolly nutmegging an opponent really was something to remember.

The dip and bend of the shot as it flew past the Mexico goalkeeper left England's opponents stunned, and for good reason.
