Mo Marley has named her squad for next month's FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Chile, where England will be up against the tournament hosts in the opening game on 19 November.
England have been drawn in a tough group which, as well as hosts Chile, also includes Nigeria and New Zealand.
Mo has a number of experienced players to call upon, the majority of whom formed part of the successful UEFA Under-19 Championship side in 2007 which saw England reach the Final for the first time, losing 2-0 to Germany after extra time.
It was their performance in that tournament in Iceland that saw England book their place at the Under-20 World Cup and now having waited over a year to perform on the world stage, the players are just a few weeks away from the opening game.
Steph Houghton, who was originally named in the World Cup squad last year before injury ruled her out, is the only member of the squad capped at full international level although Dani Buet was on the bench for the last two England matches.
Rachel Williams and Becky Hall have been rewarded for their club form by receiving call-ups and 17-year-old Arsenal full back Gilly Flaherty is the youngest member of the squad.
