English teenage golf sensation Charley Hull has been confirmed as one of Liselotte Neumann’s wildcard picks for Team Europe.

The 17-year-old will become the youngest player in the tournament's history.

Neumann's other three wildcard selections are Sweden's Caroline Hedwall, Giulia Sergas of Italy and another English player in America-based Jodi Ewart-Shadoff.

"I feel that Charley is playing fearless golf. You look at her stats, she shoots in the 60s about 30% of the time which is pretty good, she has finished runner-up five times on the European Tour. Neumann spoke to Sky Sports about Hull’s inclusion: 

"She's a strong player and she brings to our team what we are looking for."

"She has a lot of energy; she's a long hitter which is going to be great for Colorado. 

"It's quite generous off the tees and we are playing up at altitude and the ball will fly. 

"I think she can bring a lot of great things for our team and I am very excited about her.

"It's been so difficult for us every time we have been over there. The crowds are hard. 

"If this team can mentally prepare for this, I really believe this team can do it."

Hull and the rest of Team Europe will be hoping to become the first team ever to win the Solheim Cup in America.
