Katie Robinson is on a “great trajectory” as she returns to club action after shining for England.

The Albion wide player scored the only goal for England under-23s as they beat France.

She was also involved in a 2-2 draw against Spain alongside fellow Seagulls players Poppy Pattinson and Maisie Symonds.

Robinson has dropped down from the senior Lionesses and has had chance to shine in the age group side.

Albion boss Melissa Phillips said: “She scored a goal in the match against France and then had another one that was called back in the second match.

“She has had a couple of successful campaigns after being called back by the 23s.

“It just took a lot of pressure off her.

“When she is in the senior squad, she had a very different role to what she has in the Brighton team.

“It is going to stretch her in certain ways – technically, tactically, her decision-making.

“She is on a great trajectory. She is always focused on the areas where she wants to grow and learn.

“I think you see the players who are playing consistently in the WSL go into that under-23 squad and they always excel for them.

“It’s the journey that she is on.

“Ourselves, the under-23s management team, the senior management team are all in support of her and the direction in which she is moving.”

Phillips was delighted to see several of her players do well with national teams over the past fortnight and return fit and well for today's WSL match against Leicester City at Broadfield Stadium (2pm).

The one exception is goalkeeper Nicky Evrard, who went off injured in Belgium’s defeat by the Netherlands.

Evrard has been assessed by both Albion and Chelsea, from whom she is on loan.

Phillips said: “It is a really short turn around to the game with Leicester and the players have been absolutely brilliant with their professionalism and focus levels.”
