Collette scored twice in the 3-0 win over New Zealand in the team's opening match and starred in the Qantas Young Matildas final match against Russia, which they drew 1-1 and saw them miss out on a place in the second round.
She was especially dangerous at set pieces and even scored direct from a corner against New Zealand.
Collette has already appeared 18 times for the senior team, Qantas Matildas, helping the team qualify for the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup with a second place finish at the AFC Women's Asian Cup in Adelaide in July.
