England Head Coach Lois Fidler has named her squad to travel to the Czech Republic later this month, as her young Lions bid to reach the FIFA World Under-17 World Cup in New Zealand.
England's squad includes Everton's Toni Duggan, who came on as a second half substitute in the Toffees' recent FA Tesco Women's Premier League Cup Final win over Arsenal, as well as Gilly Flaherty who scored the winning goal from the penalty spot, deep into extra time for Arsenal and Chelsea in the Reserve Section League Cup Final last week.
Of England's opponents, the Netherlands went through to the second qualifying round having not dropped a point or conceded a goal in their mini-tournament in Poland.
The Czech Republic progressed from their group as winners after a draw against Spain and victories over Italy and Belarus, whilst Belgium were group runners-up to Finland, defeating Estonia and the Faroe Islands, but losing to the Finns 3-1.
The championship's eventual winners, runners-up and third placed side will qualify for the first FIFA Under-17 Women's World Cup, to be held in New Zealand during Autumn 2008.
