The 21-year-old, recently named the U23s' Player of the Season, is one of seven new faces that Ryan Giggs has called up to join the senior Wales squad in Portugal ahead of the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Croatia and Hungary at the end of the month.
"It's a great way to end a great season for me," Broadhead said on evertonfc.com. "It came as a bit of a shock to be fair but I just can't wait to get going.
"I'm flying out [on Wednesday] and flying with one of the best players in the world in Gareth Bale and I just can't wait to experience all of it.
"I'm looking forward to seeing what the standard is like at that level. Most of the players play Championship or Premier League so I can work hard and learn from that."
Broadhead, who has one first-team appearance at Everton to his name, has represented Wales at youth level but is waiting for his first senior cap.

Mixing it with iconic players such as Giggs and Bale will be inspiring for him, he will bring good advice and experience back.

The likes of Antonee Robinson, Joe Williams, Holgate and maybe even Pennington all did pretty well there last season and Silva and Brands will now have a good idea of their abilities in games that matter and how they might fit into the first team squad.

He's been great for our U23s but I agree with others that he's not first-team ready and a loan in the Championship would allow him to show if he can step up.

Harry Wilson is a very good player, I think he is the youngest player to represent Wales (full international). He's played for Liverpool's first team and scored, he's been responsible for Derby County's penalties, takes plenty of their free kicks and scores some good ones, including a cracker that helped to knock Man Utd out of the League Cup.
There's more than one Premier League club after him, I would be surprised if Liverpool sell but I hope that they do. I think they would be making a mistake they'd regret.

Case in point: Northern Ireland. They saw Duffy, Gibson etc switch allegiance to the Republic once they were established players. All of a sudden they threw some caps at Shane Lavery an occasional sub of the Everton under 23s. Even with their slim pool of players, I can't imagine that Michael O'Neill legitimately thought Lavery was international material when he picked him.

A good case is Ethan Ampadu who played alongside Broadhead at the age of 16, got snapped up by Chelsea and has won a few full caps now.
I expect Ryan Astley, who is also dual qualified but apparently committed to Wales, to get a full Wales cap in the next few years.

At least you'll get a game at some point, as for the England squad with other young players outside the top six... doubtful.
