Highly rated Wolves defender has earned a place in eth England U18's side to face Slovenia on Easter Monday.
It is the second time Mark has represented his country after making hi debut last November, and he is rellishing the cahance to show what he's made of.
If I play it will be my second game for England,' he said. 'This has been a great season for me playing for my country, signing a new contract, being a regular in the reserves and being involved with the first team.' he told the clubs official site.
It's an honour for any player top be selected for Englamd, at any level, so Mark can be rightly proud of his achievments so far.
But there is still oe ambition he harbours, that should be music to the ears of Wolves fans everywhere.
'The icing on the cake will be breaking through into the senior squad. But I know I've got to be patient and keep working on my game.' he added.
Wolves currently have their best crop of youngters coming through for many a season.
And with the financial implications of not gaining promotion now almost a reality, they are going to need every one of them to step up to the pro ranks and be counted.
Good luck with the England set up Mark from all at Vital Wolves.
We look forward to seeing you in the main squad next year
