Beth Mead was the tournament's top scorer when England won Euro 2022

Beth Mead's return to the travelling squad will provide a "lift" to other Arsenal players recovering from injury, says boss Jonas Eidvall.

England striker Mead, 28, missed the World Cup after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury last November.

She has travelled to Sweden for the Women's Champions League first-round qualifier against Linkoping on Wednesday but is not set to play.

"This comes a little too early for her, but she is not very far," said Eidvall.

Since Mead ruptured her ACL, Arsenal team-mates Vivianne Miedema, Leah Williamson, Laura Wienroither and Teyah Goldie have all suffered the same injury.

"Mentally we hope this is a lift for the other injured players too, to see her coming back," added Eidvall.

"It's so nice when you welcome a player back because you know how hard they have fought for so many months. That starts off the pitch and then on the pitch to be able to get into this shape."
