Scotland national coach Anna Signeul has named her squad to face Wales in their first match of 2011.
The friendly will take place at the Bridge Meadow Stadium, Haverfordwest on Sunday 13 February (12.30pm).
Anna told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "We're very much looking forward to this game. Wales are a strong, physical side, who will give us a tough match.
"We will need to be focused and quick on the ball. They are a side who are progressing quickly and are keen to impress new Finnish coach Jarmo Matikainen.
"We have a very young squad at the moment, but with a good deal of experience, which I believe is great for the future of the Scottish game.
"Jennifer Beattie and Kim Little will miss the match due to commitments with Arsenal, so that's given us an opportunity to bring in Alana Marshall, who impressed me at our training camp at Toryglen last weekend.
"All of the players looked fit and sharp at the training camp, and I am very impressed with their desire to start the new season.
"We're taking this match very seriously as it is vital that we get some competitive match practice ahead of the Cyprus Women's Cup in March, and what could be a very challenging season with UEFA Women's Euro qualifiers later in the year."
Glasgow City midfielder Suzanne Lappin has also received a call up to the squad and Spartans striker Diana Barry, who was recently voted as Scottish Women's Players Player of the Year, returns to the international fold.
