Phil Neville has named the England Women's squad for the forthcoming autumn internationals against Germany and Czech Republic.
The 21-player squad will meet up at their St George's Park base next week in preparation for the visit of Germany to a sold out Wembley Stadium on 9th November [kick off 5:30pm GMT].
The Lionesses are set to break the all-time attendance record for a women's game in England. It is hoped the final crowd on the day could top the current record of 80,023 that came when the United States beat Japan 2-1 at Wembley to claim gold at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
The squad then travel to České Budějovice to play Czech Republic on 12th November at the Stadion Střelecký ostrov [kick off 7:15pm GMT]. The match at the home of SK Dynamo České Budějovice will be the Lionesses' final game of 2019.
Neville has selected an experienced group which includes 17 members of England's FIFA Women's World Cup squad who reached the semi finals in France earlier this year.
Ellen White, Georgia Stanway and Gemma Bonner will also join their England team mates at St George's Park to train with the group. White and Stanway are returning from injury and Neville will continue to asses their fitness on camp before making a decision on whether they are ready to be recalled to the squad.
Phil Neville said: "This is going to be a momentous occasion in the history of women's football in England. To have sold out Wembley Stadium for the first time and to have potentially over 80,000 fans cheering on our team will not only be record-breaking, it will be an incredibly proud and humbling experience for myself and my players and staff."
