England Under-19 Head Coach Mo Marley has named her squad for the forthcoming Eight Nations Tournament in La Manga.
Mo has selected 19 players for the trip to Spain with the squad due to fly out for the tournament on Saturday.
England will play Italy, Sweden and Norway in the space of just five days - three matches that will provide vital preparation for the Second Qualifying Phase of the UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship in April.
There, England will meet Poland, Iceland and hosts Belgium as they bid to reach the European Championship Finals - a tournament in which they lost in the Final to Germany last year.
England were in imperious form in the first qualifying round, scoring 17 goals and conceding just once in three matches. However, they have found it tougher in friendly competition since then, losing 3-1 to France and 1-0 to Italy last autumn.
More than 1,000 fans crammed into Harrogate Town's ground to see England take on France in October and they would have seen the home side take the lead through Leicester forward Remi Allen.
However, it needed a special performance in goal from Arsenal's Rebecca Spencer to keep the scoreline down on the day. Both players have been selected for the tournament in La Manga.
Mo Marley has called upon the services of five Chelsea players - Lizzie Edwards, Georgie Giddings, Katie Owen, Claire Rafferty and Ellen White, while Leeds United have four representatives - Sophie Bradley, Jade Moore, Sophie Walton and Jessica Clarke. Doncaster Rovers Belles winger Emily Heckler has been rewarded for her impressive recent form, which included a double strike against Arsenal, by receiving a call up.
