England boss Phil Neville has named his squad for the forthcoming internationals against Austria and Sweden.
The Lionesses take on Austria in Maria Enzersdorf on Thursday 8th November before hosting Sweden at Rotherham United's AESSEAL New York Stadium on Sunday 11th November.
Neville has underlined his commitment to giving young players opportunities to progress to the senior team, with first call ups for Manchester City duo Georgia Stanway and Ellie Roebuck.
Stanway has netted seven goals in her opening six starts at club level so far this season and was joint top scorer at this summer's U20 World Cup as Mo Marley's squad secured bronze.
There is also a first time spot in the squad for ex-Arsenal forward Chioma Ubogagu, currently plying her trade on loan at Brisbane Roar from Orlando Pride.
"We're really looking forward to these two fixtures," said Neville, who awarded seven players their full international debuts in last month's World Cup qualifying match in Kazakhstan.
"It's an opportunity to test ourselves against top quality opposition as we continue our preparation for next summer's World Cup.
"We've included three uncapped players in our squad and I'm really looking forward to working with them.
"They have performed very well for their clubs this season and fully deserve their opportunity with the senior team."
Another milestone is set to be reached during the course of the two matches as captain Steph Houghton is set to win her 100th cap.
Tickets are selling fast for the Sweden game, so there are now limited tickets remaining. Adult seats can be purchased for £10 with children's tickets just £1.
