England ace Jordan Nobbs names top two Lionesses so far including Beth Mead

England Women's star Jordan Nobbs has named Beth Mead and the "frightening" Lauren Hemp as her outstanding Lionesses so far.

The Women's Euro 2022 is taking the nation by storm, and the team came out with maximum points in the group stage. England's Women secured all 9 points after facing Austria, Norway and Northern Ireland since the competition kicked off on July 6.

And history was made after a phenomenal 8-0 victory against their Scandinavian rivals at the Amex stadium earlier this week.

Fans up and down the country will be eager to see what Sarina Wiegman's team can bring after a promising start to their campaign.

Now with the England Women's team securing their place in the quarter-finals on July 20, which players should we look out for?

We spoke to England and Arsenal midfielder Jordan Nobbs who revealed two key stars in the Lionesses' starting XI.

She told Daily Star: "Naturally Beth Mead is one to look out for.

"But if you look at the other wingers like Lauren Hemp, her speed and pace is frightening.

"I think it already makes defenders think twice about getting up the pitch.

"For the Lionesses, they're two players in top form and Beth has been there getting the goals."

Mead has already proven her confidence in front of goal after scoring five in just three games so far.

If she keeps up her game, the Arsenal striker could have a great chance of nabbing the Golden Boot in the competition.

As for her Manchester City teammate Ellen White, she currently sits with two goals in the tournament.

Recently Nobbs expressed her fears of facing the France Women's team, although she doesn't think they'll get that far.
